Margaritas, Mayhem, & Murder:
An Andi Anna Jones Mystery, # 1
Coming Soon from Imajin Books! Fall 2017
Ruby Jones is a piece of work, but is she a murderer?
Did you ever want to take a horrifying job experience and turn it into something positive? My latest fictional character, Andi Anna Jones, is my way of coming to terms with a short-lived career as a travel agent.
Andi, mediocre travel agent, with an inferiority complex about her job, and her single status, discovers her “inner sleuth” when forced to fly to Cancun after her dad’s widow is arrested for the murder of a has-been lounge singer. She soon discovers her talent to flesh out clues and solve mysteries far surpasses her ability to book vacations and handle complaints from unhappy clients.
One of the first bits of advice I received was “Write what you know.” I followed that advice in Andi Anna Jones.
I want to thank my dad for inspiring me to write, my mother for reading my first family memoir and saying, “This is good!” (I chose to ignore the surprise in her voice) To my best friend, buddy, my husband, Ken, for his encouragement, support, sense of humor, and creative mind.
If you enjoy reading Andi Anna Jones half as much as I enjoyed writing it, we’ll both be winners!
