Just wanted to let you know that POSED IN DEATH, my darker mystery, is free now.
I based the character of Maxine on a woman I met when I used to go to our local, dinner theater to see every play. Not so much to see the performances, but because my friend’s Aunt Betty and her friend Fran sat at our table, along with four other older ladies, and they were all vibrant, intelligent, opinionated, and FUN. All widows. I’d come home to tell my husband (who worked second trick at the time) that I wanted to grow up to be just like them, except I’d let HH stick around:) Aunt Betty spent hours volunteering at the SPCA. Fran was in her eighties and was a seamstress for all of the local theater groups. She was always busy. Maxine isn’t as vivacious as Fran, but she sews for all of the local productions, too. Those ladies inspired me.
Anyway, POSED IN DEATH is darker than my usual cozies, so I thought it might fit the October scarier theme. If you try it, I hope you like it.
