Cozy Mystery Party this weekend!

Starting tonight, The Cozy Mystery Party Facebook group is having an author takeover extravaganza. Every half hour a different cozy mystery author will take over the page, introducing themselves and their work and offering a giveaway. That’s a lot of giveaways and a lot of chances to win! I will be there on Sunday from 6:00-6:30 EST.

The group is private but welcoming, so if you have time this weekend, please pop over, request to join, and take part!


The third book in the Mrs. Claus series is out today. Thank you so much to all the advance readers who have already reviewed it! Everyone has their own Santaland in their imagination, so it makes me happy that so many have embraced and enjoyed the slightly strange one that Mrs. Claus and friends live in.

I had so much fun writing Mrs. Claus and the Evil Elves, but then I love all the time I spend with April, Juniper, Jingles and the gang. There are some new characters in Santaland this time around, and the usual level of mayhem. I hope you’ll enjoy it!




Release Day!

It’s release day for Mrs. Claus and the Halloween Homicide! I’m so happy that the continuing adventures of April, Nick, Juniper, Jingles, Quasar, and the rest can finally be in readers’ hands. April Claus is about to experience her second Christmas in Santaland—but before the stockings are hung from the mantels, she’s introducing Halloween to the elves of Christmastown. Faster than you can say “abominable,” one of the loudest foes of Halloween in Santaland is found dead in the middle of a snow monster footprint.

I hope readers will enjoy this second journey to the North Pole!

I’m so happy to be taking part in the 12 Days of Cozies event this year. I’ll be doing a Twitter giveaway and a chat on December 6, but as the name of the event promises, there will twelve days of giveaways and online chats from December 1st through the 12th. I hope you can join in. Lots of books to discover–and maybe win!
