A Glorious Day!

Thanks to Victoria’s Cafe Bistro and Trolley Line Bookshop in Rogers, Arkansas for hosting the Saturday Signing “Books & Brunch” event yesterday. We had a terrific turnout, and I loved getting to meet so many fans of my Waterside Kennels mystery series.

Cafe owner Victoria Christie provided the perfect venue for a cozy book signing and generously set up a space right by the door and visible to anyone passing by.  (The food was fantastic, too!) Myra Moran, owner of the Trolley Line Bookshop, was the perfect hostess, making sure everyone was welcomed and introduced. We had a veritable parade of librarians, dog lovers of all sorts, cat lovers, writers, neighbors, and colleagues. Perfect!

A highlight of the day for many appeared to be talking about the treasure tales and regional stories that came to life in the book. And watching people waiting for a signed copy of my book was an incredible experience I’ll probably never forget.

Thank you, everyone, for a glorious day!


Saturday Signing: Books & Brunch

Food, books, and friends—what could be better on a winter’s day?

Books and Brunch invitation

The owners of Victoria’s Cafe & Bistro and the Trolley Line Bookshop have teamed up to host the “Saturday Signing: Books & Brunch” series in historic downtown Rogers, Arkansas. I’m honored to announce they’re kicking off the series on January 18th with my book, Deadly Ties (A Waterside Kennels mystery).  My thanks to Victoria Christie and Myra Moran for this special event.

If you’re in the area, I hope you’ll come by and join in the fun!

Celebrating a Terrific New Author!


It’s official: Tracy Weber‘s delightful book, MURDER STRIKES A POSE, is now available!

Tracy and I are both members of the national organization Sisters in Crime, and it’s a pleasure to support her as her debut novel hits the stores.

As Tracy says on her website: “Yoga, dogs, and murder…what could be more fun?”  Here’s a snippet from the back of the book:

When George and Bella—a homeless alcoholic and his intimidating German shepherd—disturb the peace outside her studio, yoga instructor Kate Davidson’s Zen-like calm is stretched to the breaking point. Kate tries to get rid of them before Bella scares the yoga pants off her students. Instead, the three form an unlikely friendship.

One night Kate finds George’s body behind her studio. The police dismiss his murder as a drug-related street crime, but she knows George wasn’t a dealer. So Kate starts digging into George’s past while also looking for someone to adopt Bella before she’s sent to the big dog park in the sky. With the murderer nipping at her heels, Kate has to work fast or her next Corpse Pose may be for real.

This is the first book in her Downward Dog mystery series, and I hear book #2 will soon be on its way to the publisher. We can look forward to another Downward Dog mystery soon!

Congratulations, Tracy!
