Putting mystery into life

I have always loved mysteries since I read my first copy of Nancy Drew, one of the original copies owned by a cousin just younger than my mother.

My favorite mystery authors now include Carolyn Hart, Stuart Woods, William Bernhardt, Anne Perry, and J.A. Jance.

In the past three years, I've written and had published three mysteries: two juvenile books and one for adult readers. I wrote The Base Stealers Club because I couldn't find books about sports to interest a reluctant-reader grandson. Then a sequel, Case of the Missing Coach, was needed.

Earlier this year, Midnight Hours debuted, my first adult reading level book, which is making its first virtual tour starting tomorrow. The schedule is posted on Brain Cells & Bubble Wrap, Vivian's Site, and 4RV Publishing website.

Thanks for reminding me about Nancy Drew...she was my first mystery experience too! And now I know what I'll write for my first post for MMM.

Thanks for being first, Dana.

Glad I helped, but I'll be mentioning Nancy Drew tomorrow, too, but just in passing.
