So for a mystery novelist, what better background for a murder than a holiday . . . and Christmas is the biggest holiday of them all.
Those were some of the thoughts that were in my mind when I sat down to write THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE KILLER, the third book in my Fresh Baked Mystery series from Obsidian Books.
Of course, I enjoy working on all of my books for one reason or another. KILLER CRAB CAKES, the fourth book in the Fresh Baked series, is now out in trade paperback and is set on the Gulf Coast of Texas, one of my favorite places to getaway to. My Delilah Dickinson series, which centers around the misadventures of a crime-solving travel agent who organizes literary-oriented tours, allows me to travel to many interesting places, at least in my imagination. The second book in that series, HUCKLEBERRY FINISHED, is out now from Kensington, and KILLER ON A HOT TIN ROOF will appear in 2010. Next year will also see the publication of the fifth Fresh Baked Mystery, THE PUMPKIN MUFFIN MURDER, and I’ll be writing the sixth one. I’m not sure about the title yet, but I know it’ll be ringing in the new year with a lot of good food and an intriguing mystery!
So settle back and enjoy the holidays with a good book. That’s what I intend to do.
