Madge and Paul Franklin enjoy being retired. They also enjoy living full-time in their recreational vehicle and having adventures as they travel across America.

The couple has been on the road as full-time RVers for over 6 years. Sometimes they travel as simple tourists, but often they work as volunteers with different organizations.

Recruited by a semi-official government organization to work in clandestine operations, the Franklins find themselves RVing throughout the Southwest tracking a "mad" scientist suspected of killing people in fast food restaurants.
The Franklin's investigation takes them from White Sands National Monument in New Mexico to Virginia, back to New Mexico, and then to Death Valley National Park, where the murder mystery reaches its climax. Who is killing these fast food diners ... if it's not the calorie-laden food?

Kate McLaughlin wanted to create a fictional couple who could tell her and her husband's story. Somehow the book took on a life of its own and Fast Food Kills is the result. "My husband and I are retired and live on a retirement style income. We live full-time in an RV and travel all over the country. When not visiting the kids, we work as volunteers with the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife. We also do service projects and disaster rebuilds with NOMADS, which is a branch of the United Methodist Church." About her writing, she says, "I had recently turned 70 and thought if Grandma Moses could start that late in life, so could I."
