Celebrate!

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

I can hardly believe it, but I just published my 25th book!  Wish you were all here to celebrate with me.

Here’s a rundown on what I’ve written:

  • 2 Stevie Coral Cozy Mysteries Novels
  • 3 Annie Malone, P.I. Suspense Novels
  • 17 cozy mystery novellas (14 Two Old Biddies Mini-Mysteries and 3 Senior Delinquents Mini-Mysteries)
  • 1 collection of short stories called “Twists of Fate”  (I’m a big O. Henry fan.)
  • 2 nonfiction books (Alzheimer’s–Living With a Stranger: a guide for family caregivers, and How to Write a Mystery Without Plotting It to Death)

Whew!  That’s a lot for the seventeen years I’ve been writing.

In future posts I plan to introduce you to Megan, Mattie, Stevie and Annie–give you a little back story about them, and tell you a little about the series they’re in.  I hope you’ll enjoy an insider’s peek at their lives.

From time to time, I’ll let you know what books I’ve been reading, and make recommendations of authors I’ve enjoyed.

What else would you like me to talk about in future blogs?  What kinds of stories are you interested in reading?  I’d love to know what you think.  There’s a place for you to put your e-mail address to get notices of future posts.  I hope to hear from you soon.

Happy Reading and Writing to you all,

Jill-Ayn

There is a “process” to everything we do. For writers it’s (1) Showing up every day, (2) Doing the work, (3) Pressing through the discomfort and . . . → Read More: Trust the Process

Busy Writer

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

Well, I’ve been one busy little bee these past weeks. I mean what else could I do, we were snowed in! Hard to think of Southern California and snow, but when you live 7000 feet up on a mountain, well, there’s snow! In fact, they said we’ve had the most . . . → Read More: Busy Writer

Almost Ready….

Hello Fellow Readers and Writers–

Well, the editing is done on the third Senior Delinquents Mini-Mystery, Drop Dead Soup. We’re expecting snow the next four days, up here in the mountains of Southern California, so I’ll be typing away at the corrections, and should have the book ready to go by the middle of next . . . → Read More: Almost Ready….
