About the Author

Welcome to my world! Come in, pull up a chair, grab a glass of iced tea and let's chat. I grew up in a small rural town in southeastern Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories—ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories. For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic. Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley. Death by Chocolate is the first of six books in that series: Murder, Lies and Chocolate, The Great Chocolate Scam, Chocolate Mousse Attack, Fatal Chocolate Obsession, and Deadly Chocolate Addiction. There will be more! The Ex Who Wouldn't Die is another cozy mystery series. In another incarnation, I sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For those novels, I won several awards including National Readers' Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed five of the out-of-print single titles. Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! And writers. And riders. And computer programmers. Okay, I just plain love to talk!

This book is a fun read! The suspense grips you and keeps you turning the pages while the humor keeps you laughing even as you fear for the characters¿ safety. Lindsay is a quirky heroine we can all relate to. And what about the mysterious Fred? Is there going to be a sequel? Will he ever figure out who he really is? I hope so! I want to read more of this author!

I'd like to give it a 4 just to be democratic, but this one is well worth the 5 stars and then some. If books were in beauty pageants, this one would be Miss Congeniality. Chocolate, murder, mayhem, and more. What's not to love? Wish I'd written it.

This is my kind of book. Easy to read, fun characters and a great plot. If you love chocolate and a good mystery...this book is for YOU.

The word bittersweet comes to mind. Laughter, tears, and mystery. Three great ingredients to give the reader a totally satisfying read. Sally has crafted a wonderful book that will often keep you on the edge of your reading chair. Great twists, turns, and unexpected surprises. Sally is on a level looking down at the efforts of others. If you buy one book this year, Death by Chocolate must be the one.

I highly recommend this book. The characters were well developed and the story line made me want to keep reading. I did not want to put it down until I had finished it.

I love the depth of emotions and the well-rounded characters in Death by Chocolate. The main characters are charismatic and pull you right into their lives. The background characters round out the plot and the believability. The twists and turns are fun, thoughtful, and tense. This is one of those stories you can't put down! And the recipes are great, too! :D

I loved this book. It was a good mystery but was so funny. All the chocolate mentions made you want to grab a chocolate snack, too. I really enjoyed this book.

And thank you so much, dear author, for your beautiful book! Not an error, one. Seems to be unusual these days, sad, but true. But back to the review: I LOVED THIS BOOK! ... And am off to buy the rest in this series. :-)

Loved this book! The characters came alive. Just enough twists and turns to keep it exciting. The bad guy made an art form of terrorizing his victims. It is a page turner you won't be able to put down.

Nice writing. Keeps you engaged with the story line without all the filler junk like most writers do just to get a certain amount of pages or words.
