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!

New Series debuts in September!

My new Mrs. Claus series will kick off on September 29th with Mrs. Claus and the Santaland Slayings:

It’s the first Christmas in Santaland for April Claus—but it may also be her last unless she can uncover a villain with a killer Christmas wish. . . .
Love is full of surprises—though few compare to realizing that you’re marrying the real-life Santa. April Claus dearly loves her new husband, Nick, but adjusting to life in the North Pole is not all sugarplums and candy canes. Especially when a cantankerous elf named Giblet Hollyberry is killed—felled by a black widow spider in his stocking—shortly after publicly arguing with Nick.
Christmastown is hardly a hotbed of crime, aside from mishaps caused by too much eggnog, but April disagrees with Constable Crinkle’s verdict of accidental death. As April sets out to find the culprit, it’ll mean putting the future of Christmas on the line—and hoping her own name isn’t on a lethal naughty list.
