Reminiscent of the styles and stories of Agatha Christie, Rhys Bowen, and Richard Osman, Silent Winter Solstice is an intriguing mystery full of 1960s small-town nostalgia and memorable characters.

Winter Solstice, 1968. While most of the world is transfixed by the televised images of the first manned lunar orbit, Beth Williams rushes through the eerie quiet of her home-town city park trying to get to work on time. Suddenly, a body rolls down the hill and lands near her feet. She glimpses a shadowy figure at the top of the hill. But, before the police arrive, the body disappears and they dismiss the whole thing as a drunk who fell, was stunned, and then wandered off after regaining consciousness. However, Beth is certain that a murder was committed. She and her best friend, Evie Hanson, both mystery novel buffs, decide to investigate. The menace grows when Beth discovers she is being followed around town. Beth and Evie realize they must solve the case before it is too late.

About the Author

From an early age, I loved books. One of my prized childhood possessions was my library card. I remember hours spent at the library, happily turning pages with fingers wrinkled by summer hours playing in the adjacent city swimming pool. While reading, I was transported to a whole new world of adventure and information. I was interested in everything. Some of my favorites included the Hardy Boys and Sherlock Holmes stories, and later, Agatha Christie's novels.A poem published in my high-school student anthology was my first publishing credit. It sparked a life-long passion for writing. After earning a degree in English Literature from the University of Minnesota, my first publishing-related job was copy-editing church bulletins in the morning and delivering them in the afternoon! I also volunteered as a writer and editor for our neighborhood newspaper and even sold a couple of short stories. But, practical concerns sent me to graduate school. I earned an MLIS and spent the next couple of decades working as a librarian. The desire to write never diminished and ultimately propelled me into taking writing classes at the Loft Literary Center and the University of Minnesota. A life-long resident of Minnesota, my husband and I have two grown sons and a tribe of grandchildren. We, and our pet cat, Chocolate, live in Minneapolis Minnesota.
