Come on in and we’ll all chat about murder, writing, sex, books, how Natalie and I had the blinding realization that stalking is not our forte, or any hot topic that catches our interest.
Allison, Natalie and Deb have all said hello, Karin will once she is finished with her in-depth research on hot cops (she CLAIMS to be on vacation but I’m thinking she’s traveling the country, undercover, looking for hot cops to use in her books 🙂 )
I’m delighted to be here with my fellow murder-chicks. Between the five of us, we have quite a variety of experience and backgrounds…
I’m the boring one. Seriously. Just a soccer mom who quickly realized writing about murder was much more fun than, well, anything else. Okay, truthfully, I’m a little slow. I actually tried writing historical romances for seven or eight years. After several books were rejected all over NY, I began to wonder if the dead bodies in the manuscripts were the problem.
Maybe dead bodies aren’t romantic? Sheesh, who knew? Out of frustration, I wrote a mystery and let me tell you, when it sold, I thought for sure they were kidding. For months afterward, every time the phone rang, I was sure NY was calling to tell me they’d made a mistake.
But here I am, four books and a novella later. Another book comes next year. These days, I’m sticking with the theory that as long as I don’t kill off a character and call it romance, I’m okay.
A big welcome to Murder She Writes!
