The First Review is In

Download the e-book today!“A fast paced murder mystery. I loved the setting in Chicago, the descriptive details are very accurate. I liked Booker, he was a determined young man, determined to make something good out of his life, despite his horrible upbringing. The plot was very good and original, I like that in a book. Overall I feel that those who love murder/mystery will enjoy Box of Rain.”

First Interview by Jaidis Shaw

Juniper GroveMy first author interview to promote Bend Me Shape Me was posted yesterday at Juniper Grove, the blog site of author Jaidis Shaw.  In addition to talking about Bend Me, I also answer questions about the cozy mystery I am currently working on, writing in general, and my vision for an alternate universe.

Jaidis did a feature story and giveaway of Painted Black last year and will be reviewing Bend Me, Shape Me soon.  Thank you, Jaidis!

Click through the link below to read the entire interview, but here’s a snippet:

Do you have any writing projects you are currently working on?

Yes, I am taking a break from the dark, intense world of the Street Stories series and am living out a fantasy of mine by writing a cozy mystery series. Before I moved to the big city, I lived in farm country in a little mother-in-law house across the driveway from a huge farmhouse where twelve children had been raised amid laughter and hard work. I had a secret dream that I would one day be able to buy the big house also and turn it into an artists’ and writers’ retreat, fully equipped with farm animals in the barn, chickens, home cooked meals, etc.
