“I found the body on December 1st. It was a horrible way to end an already terrible day.”
When Leah Norwood finds the body of Isabel Meeks in the dumpster behind her store, she never imagined the police would consider her a suspect. Sure, she didn’t liked Isabel, but then again, neither did anyone else. Isabel had a condescending attitude and a bad reputation. As manager of the antique store, Patina, she had made a lot of enemies.
There is Patina’s assistant manager, the handsome and charming Trent. Isabel was blackmailing him. There is Patina’s owner, the aloof and influential Anthony Thorpe. Isabel was smuggling drugs through his store. And there is the entire drug dealing Cantono family. Isabel had lost a box containing heroin from one of their shipments. That is just to name a few and didn’t even include the stranger who was seen arguing with Isabel just hours before her death.
The police have too many suspects and too many soft alibis. Leah needs to prove to the sexy new chief of police that she had nothing to do with Isabel’s death.
Leah loves a good mystery. Can she find the killer before the police charge her with murder?

I do see writing as a career. Currently, it is my part-time career, but I hope to change that in the future.
#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
The middle of the book. I almost always know how the story begins and how it ends, but I struggle writing the middle.

My high school English teacher was a great influence. He taught me a great deal about writing.

I plan to write some short stories for the two series that I have written. I would like to give some of the supporting characters a story of their own.
