“I wrote a ‘cozy’ without knowing it.  Well, actually, I knew I had written a would-be book, with interesting characters, dead bodies, and strange happenings, etc., but didn’t realize that my writing style was along that of a cozy mystery.  Once I realized that, I decided to pitch it at the Killer Nashville conference in 2011.  Deni Deitz from Five Star Publishing was the person who ‘caught my pitch,’ challenged me to let her see the full manuscript, and later decided to publish Millicent’s Tower.  Thanks to Deni and Five Star, I am now taking pleasure in sharing my book and my story — plus the excitement of writing another one!  Stay tuned!!!”
