About the Author
Her whimsical house, located in a mountain valley teeming with wild creatures, is a perfect habitat for a girl raised in northern Wyoming. The McDevitts' vacation home on Dewees Island, off the coast of Charleston, South Carolina, is another wild and natural place. Their home on stilts overlooks a swamp pond with a fourteen-foot alligator and a myriad of flying, roosting, nesting, fishing, squawking birds (well over 200 species now). Dershie's first novel, "Just Holler Bloody Murder," draws on her love of nature and adventure. In a setting very much like her Dewees Island retreat, the author creates a world where murder and mystery mix together with romance to create a wonderful and slightly quirky read.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.
Loved this book. Full of great, funny characters with suspenseful action on an island outside Charleston, SC -- one of my favorite places in the world. I can't wait for the sequel.
