Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn't that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.-Marilyn Monroe

Never underestimate the power of jealousy and the power of envy to destroy. Never underestimate that.-Oliver Stone.

When their colleague is murdered, three wanna-be authors can't help meddling in the investigation, which puts them on the killer's radar. Robin refuses to leave the house, Daphne has OCD, and Beth falls asleep at the most inopportune moments. Yet all three find themselves caught in a cat-and-mouse game where anything can happen and no one is safe.

Will they help catch a killer or learn that writing can be murder?

Detective Jacob Turner is a modern-day Columbo in search of a clever killer. Instinct tells him something doesn't add up. Then, the case becomes personal and the hunt is on...

Poison Pen is a stand-alone novel and part of the About Three Authors series, which includes Whoever Said Love Was Easy? by Patti Roberts and Stolen Hearts & Muddy Pawprints by Georgina Ramsey.

Compelling story with unbalanced characters that are quirky & fun... The story begins with a well-thought-out murder scene. In addition to a good suspense, we are given a brief snapshot into the killer’s motivations and delusions. I was hooked immediately and it made me want to read further to see how the investigation would unfold. Rather than a whodunit mystery, this story was laid out as a police procedural. We were able to follow the investigation step-by-step to learn how the police — and others involved — worked to catch a killer. The scenes progressed realistically in a compelling manner that drew the reader in. I liked how the suspense was on what the suspect would do next, rather than who the killer was. From the first page of the story, we begin to get a clear idea of just how messed up all of the characters in this story truly are. The killer is delusional, the three friends; Daphne, Beth, and Robin are quirky and lovable; but, suffer from their own individual idiosyncrasy that makes them endearing and delightful. If you are looking for a fun, quick summer read, I’d definitely recommend you give this one a try.
