Meet the Author

At the age of twelve, I wanted to be an astronaut, but NASA wasn't interested in astronauts who suffered from motion sickness. So I set my sights on Broadway. No go. Broadway only wants singers who can sing and dancers who can dance. Who knew? Lucky for me, I enjoyed drawing. Luckier still, I was good at it. I settled on art school and a subsequent career as a writer and designer in the consumer crafts industry. Then I got the urge to write fiction, and a new career was born.

Who could pass up reading an intriguing collection of 10 full-length cozy mysteries featuring murder, mayhem, and zany capers from amateur female sleuths?! Since I enjoyed reading all ten mystery tales in the Sleuthing Women Collection, I decided to only provide a general book review instead of individual reviews. Sleuthing Women is an eclectic collection of first-in-series mystery collection from authors Lois Winston, Jonnie Jacobs, Judy Alter, Maggie Toussaint, Camille Minichino, RP Dahlke, Susan Santangelo, Mary Kennedy, Heather Haven, and Vinnie Hanse. Each mystery story has a balanced mixture of murder and mayhem that will appeal to everyone. Each of the authors weave an intriguing, unique, and thoroughly enjoyable full length mystery with engaging characters, a variety of settings, and enough drama, humor, mystery, and suspense that will easily draw the reader into each story, keep them turning the pages, and leave them wanting more. Sleuthing Women is the perfect first-in-series mystery collection that will certainly peak your interest, and whet your appetite to read the rest of the mysteries in each of the individual authors' series. Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the authors in exchange for my honest review.
