NEW RELEASE January 4, 2022- THE TWIST AND SHOUT MURDER

Teresa Trent writes hilarious cozy mysteries that take place in the small towns of Texas. She will be branching out with her first historical mystery series, The Swinging Sixties debuting in January 2022 with Level Best Books.
Her popular Pecan Bayou Series takes place in the Hill Country of Texas while her Piney Woods Series is in East Texas. Two very different worlds.
Writing short stories has become a passion and she has had stories included in many anthologies, her latest two coming out in October 21, "A Slice for Stanley" in Autumn Noir and "The Speed Dating Cop" in 'Tis the Season Volume 2. You can see the locations of all her stories on her blog, Books to the Ceiling .
