I was never one of those kids who knew I would be a writer when I grew up. As a matter of fact, I was going to be an actress. That’s what my mother always said and she gave me the title to prove it: Drama Queen. Well, obviously, that didn’t happen and today I am an author and loving every minute of my profession.
Although I love reading humorous stories, I’ve really locked into mystery and suspense. This is what I read and watch 98% of the time, and it’s why I write in the genre. As an avid reader and lover of anything suspense, my first writing turned into a three-book series featuring NYPD Detectives Zachary Gerard and Jessie Kensington. Titles like the The Last Witness, Elusive Justice and Deadly Obsessions have received rave reviews, citing suspense-filled realism.
I’m currently writing feverishly writing the finale to Diamonds in the Ruff, the first in my Cozy Capers series.
A jewel thief on the loose. An archenemy’s dead body in a closet. A good deed gone wrong . . . and the McKall sisters’ homecoming is just getting started!
Finally, you’ve asked and I’ve heard. I’m about to introduce Glitzy Nash and the Goombahs, my heroine in my second cozy mysteries series. Her introduction will be a cozy Christmas to set the stage that will lead into another three in the series–maybe more. Just remember, nothing is ever sealed in concrete . . . except maybe a body!
And although these amateurs may not have training to back up their sleuthing, they sure have the brains and follow-through to solve the crime. Well . . .maybe.
I also write contemporary romance under the name Carolyn Hughey.
