As a writer, I'm always dreaming of new settings, new locations, new plot possibilities. Many cozy mysteries are set in small towns, and the south is a popular venue. There's something wonderful and compelling about southern mysteries.
The Talk Radio Mysteries take place in a small Florida town called Cypress Grove. DEAD AIR is the first in this 4 book series. With more to come! I liked the idea of a small town because Dr. Maggie, the heroine and amateur sleuth, moved from Manhattan and I thought the "fish out of water" scenario might lead to some comic possibilities.
Dr. Maggie hosts her own radio talk show on WYME and gradually becomes acclimated to life in Cypress Grove. By book 4, A DEADLY FUNDRAISER, she's made some solid friendships, solved a few murders and acquired a terrific boyfriend. Things are looking good for Dr. Maggie and her crew. Here's a fun video on A DEADLY FUNDRAISER. Just click on the name.
You can check out all the books in the series on my website, along with my teen books and my books for "young teens." Happy reading!
