At a dime a dozen, I’m going broke handing out excuses for my dad. 

The name on the door says “JD Pierson, Investigator,” but most days the chair behind his desk is empty. It’s 1936 and times are hard for everyone in Tyler, Texas, but it’s all I can do to keep the rent paid since Dad lost his way in a bottle of gin. 

When JD suddenly shows a moment of sober coherence, I whisk him off to his favorite fishing lake in the hopes I can keep him off the sauce. I wanted Dad back in the investigator game, but having an old friend turn up dead was not part of the plan. 

But when a swarm of heirs swoops in we’re left wondering if his death really was an accident, or if murder is how one of them means to cash in. 

**only .99 cents!** 

The Killer Jack Mystery 
The J.D. Pierson Mystery Series Book 2 

A trip to state prison puts Jenny on the trail for a stolen necklace and right into the path of a killer...  

The lights are just about to go out for good in my father's PI office when I get an unexpected call from the state penitentiary. My mother's only brother was sent up for robbery years ago, and now he needs Dad's help to get his daughter out of trouble. It's impossible for me to be sure that the pendant around Cousin Betty's neck is stolen, but one thing's for sure—she doesn't want to talk about where it came from. When my cousin gets gunned down walking home and the necklace disappears, I realize I'm not only looking for a thief . . . I'm dealing with a murderer. 

Can I track down the identity of a man named Jack in time, or will he disappear into the shadows, only to kill again? 

The Case of the Texas Ranger 
The J.D. Pierson Mystery Series Book 3 

A Texas Ranger—a virtual relic from the past–walks into a bar... but it isn't funny when he gets shot down on the street the moment he walks out... 

Just like the doctors warned, Dad has made lots of promises about staying off the bottle. That doesn't stop me from being disappointed to find him at the local speakeasy one night. The leathery, stout man at his table looks vaguely familiar, and I'm only a little surprised to find out he's Templeton Gorham, former Texas Ranger. The governor shut down the Rangers years ago, but before that, Templeton was virtually a legend in his profession. He and JD are laughing over drinks like old friends, but later, when the three of us walk out into the night, gunshots pierce the darkness. Templeton is left lying in a pool of blood, and I'm left with a brand-new case on my hands. 

When the victim won't speak, can I find the answers to keep a killer from finishing the job he started?  

C.H. SESSUMS is a pen name for USA Today Bestselling Author Olivia Hardin. While Olivia writes all manner of romance, C.H. scribbles out cozy mysteries set in her beloved state of Texas. Whether exploring urban legends from all over the lone star state or solving capers set in far off times, mystery meets history in all of her stories. 

In real life, C.H. lives in gorgeous East Texas with her hubby and their two rescue dogs. Every weekend all four of them pile up into their bunkhouse to watch classic movies and listen to old-time radio. 

 In about 2010 the hubby and I began the sometimes fun, sometimes exhausting, oftentimes ill-planned, converting of our old storage building into what we now affectionately call “The Bunkhouse.” It took quite a while to get it fixed up right, but when we did we discovered how much we LOVED being in there.
That began our almost weekly forays into “stay-cationing.” We would take the pup(s) (then it was just the little corgi, but now we have a second bigger dog) and would spend the night in The Bunkhouse over the weekends. We would tune out most of the world, light up our Amazon Firestick to stream movies and series. A lot of those were mysteries and I thought I’d share a few of my absolute favorites with you.
We caught a few episodes of this even before the Bunkhouse, watching it on PBS. Then when we began streaming I discovered they were ALL available on the Acorn Channel, so we went back to the beginning and watched them from the start. These are fascinating because they take place in war-time England so you get a fascinating mix of the history of that time combined with the mystery. And the relationship between the main character Foyle and his driver/assistant Samantha Stewart is so much fun. Their tenuous relationship grows through the seasons until he becomes almost like a father to her. I highly recommend checking it out.
The great thing about Midsomer Murders is that it’s a long-running series that you can stream for free (with commercials) from IBDb. Barnaby is a Detective Chief Inspector in the cozy county of Midsomer where they seem to always have some interesting murder investigation. These are fun episodes with lots of little quirky twists and turns along with a cast of suspects. Grab the popcorn and start binging this one today.
If you’re interested in something really different, check out this Russian mini-series. Set during WWII, this one is part war movie and part mystery, with undertones of intrique and romance throughout. You won’t know who the good guys and the bad guys are until the very end. Yes, this one is actually in Russian with English subtitles, but highly entertaining. There’s only one season available now, but a second has been produced and I’m just sitting on pins and needles waiting for it to become available on Amazon.
So, when you’re not reading, what mysteries have you been binging lately? Comment below and share your favorites.

What inspired you to write this book?
I had no idea how to write a book. My wife encouraged me to give up writing articles for a certain website and focus on a book. Not knowing where to begin, I fell into "Write about what you know." So I penned my Naval memoirs. The problem was; I was not the Captain of an aircraft carrier. Nor was I a Navy SEAl. I never captured a terrorist kingpin, and I didn't sail the globe for thirty years defending democracy. I was a stereotypical sailor having a damn good time during my early twenties in an era when socially questionable behavior was seen as normal in the 1980s US Navy. I wrote the book (76,000 words), sent it to agents (23 of them) and received rejections (23 of them).

So I joined an online writing group to polish the manuscript. I figured some grammar gurus would insert some commas, un-dangle some participles, and tell me what a great book I had. After being stripped bare, swallowing my ego, and admitting my shortcomings, I began my journey of learning the craft. I shelved the memoir and started over.

How did you come up with the concept for the book?
After shelving my Naval memoirs, I decided Tyler Chambers could do more than I ever did. He could be cheekier, more daring, suaver, and at times, a bigger a*hole. I got a trilogy out of him and funnily enough, he followed in my footsteps. He started with shore duty in Hawaii in Trouble Triangle before getting on board a seagoing frigate and sailing the Orient in Oceans of Trouble. Then he went to Scotland where he found a whole lot of Forbidden Trouble.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Trouble Triangle?
I wrote it in first person and Tyler was my alter ego. Many parts of the story are taken from true life events and some are pure fabrication. I won't say which parts are made up simply because I don't want to admit which parts are true! But Holly, Debbie, and Mark all existed in real life and started out as mirrors of real people I knew. However, as the book developed, they all took on their own personalities and became different people.

Where did you come up with the names in the story?
All the first names I used were from the actual people I modeled the characters off—Holly, Debbie, and Mark. But in all my books, I'm not a fan of clever or ultra-cool names. All my characters have simple, pronounceable names, and I don't spend much time deliberating on them. I go with whatever hits me immediately and that is the character I create. For my latest creation, I leaned back in my chair for about five seconds and Chad Dixon was born closely followed by Lisa Knolls four seconds later.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
A lot of it involved revisiting an enjoyable time in my life. The skill was making it fiction.

Tell us about your main characters- what makes them tick?
Nymphomaniacs, borderline alcoholics, party people of the 1980s. What's not to love?

How did you come up with the title of your first novel?
As with all my novels, I think of a title and then check it on Amazon. My first choice was "Double Trouble." There were at least ten books with that title. I didn't want people buying the wrong book.
"Trouble in Paradise" was my next choice but another half a dozen books showed up. I eventually focused on the triangle part of the relationship and Trouble Triangle was named (and unique).

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything about Trouble Triangle?
I began writing it in 2011 and was totally focused on Tyler being an indulgent, stereotypical sailor. So the story is about him and the entire trilogy (Tyler's Trouble Trilogy) is about a young man coming of age. However, there is a subplot that is current in today's climate. Holly and Debbie are lesbians serving in the 1980s military—a time when gays were not allowed. So it is also a story about them having to hide their sexuality. If I had written it with a different POV (point of view) it could have been a very different book. But it's still there and I'm proud to have woven such a (then) taboo subject into a romantic comedy.

What is your favorite part of this book and why?
Writing Holly's dad, Reverend Cornelius Knight. My dad was a preacher—although not quite like Holly's dad. Rev. Knight is a TV evangelist who is there to see if Tyler will measure up to his standards as Holly's boyfriend. I had so much fun writing an over the top, fire & brimstone preacher meeting a screw-up like Tyler. It was hilarious and surprisingly easy to write. It just flowed.

Anything specific you want to tell your readers?
This is why I joined the Navy as opposed to another branch of the service.

If you could spend time with a character from your book whom would it be?
I had a serious literary crush on Holly. She could be annoying, but what that girl liked to do in public places … Whew!

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
They start out based on people I know but develop into their own character. After Triangle, I became more confident with my abilities to write fiction and relied less on basing characters off real people.

Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
There were times I was just a passenger sitting at the keyboard writing what they told me. I'm not kidding, sometimes they would write me into a corner and it would take me ages to figure out how I would write myself out of it. Or I'd read stuff a few days later and ask myself "Where'd that come from?"

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
It helps if you’re a fan of the 1980s. If that was before your time, this is a good way to learn about it. But Tyler goes after a girl out of his league. "Like way out," as Holly put it. He has to use all his charm, and a good deal of BS to win her over. Once he gets her, he becomes more taken with Debbie. His angst becomes the tent pole of the story—that and he has an incredible knack for digging himself into a hole. Not only is he trying to juggle two women, but he also joined the Navy under dubious circumstances and those circumstances are about to bite him in the ass.

Have you written any other books that are not published?
As I mentioned, I scrapped my first book and my tenth book is under revision (again). I hope to release it sometime in 2020.

What did you edit out of this book?
A lot. In total, I cut over 11,000 words since the first draft.

Fun Facts/Behind the Scenes/Did You Know?'-type tidbits about the author, the book or the writing process of the book.
I have Googled the real Holly, Debbie, and Mark to see if I could find them to let them know they inspired a book. Sadly I came up empty in my searches—or perhaps it's just as well.

What can we expect from you in the future?
I've started a new novel and I'm going to write half of it from a female, first-person POV—and I will attempt this feat without a sex-change. Yep. Beta readers get ready.

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?
I was in a Taco Bell in Honolulu with the real Holly. A few of my Navy buddies came in, and dragging me aside, asked if I wanted to go to Dirty Dan's—a strip joint. I glanced at Holly then whispered back that I couldn't go because I was on a date—and what's more, I didn't need to go because I was on a date. When I returned to the table, Holly stated: "I heard that." I apologized and let her know I told them to get lost. She said, "I've never been to a strip club. I'd like to check it out." So we went.

*Book Tour & Giveaway* What are Friends for? by Sarah Sutton-GUEST POST

What Are Friends For? 
By Sarah Sutton 
Genre: YA Romance 


A close, easygoing friendship can all change with just one kiss. Seventeen-year-old Remi Beaufort learns this the hard way when she plays a blindfolded kissing game at a party. 

She thinks she’s kissing Jeremy, the totally hot basketball player she’s been crushing on. And the kiss... it’s amazing. Heart-stopping, world-changing, toe-curling. The kiss makes her forget about her overbearing mother, the next-door neighbor’s drama, and the probability that she’ll fail her senior year. The best kiss of her life makes all that fall away. 

Until her blindfold falls off, and she realizes that instead of kissing her crush, she’s kissing Elijah, her best friend since third grade. 

Though she manages to convince Elijah that he was kissing his girlfriend, Remi can’t get the thought of his lips on hers out of her head. As things between them grow more and more complicated—because it turns out her fantasizing about his mouth is more of a problem than it sounds—Remi has to make a choice: does she live the rest of her life loving her best friend in secret? Or does she tell the truth and risk ruining their friendship forever? 

Heart-melting and romantic, What Are Friends For? is a swoon-worthy best-friends-to-lovers story that will leave you crushing hard. 

Sarah Sutton is a YA Romance author, bringing you stories about teenagers falling in love (sometimes with magic)✨She spends her days dreaming up ideas with her two adorable puppies by her side being cheerleaders (and mega distractions). 

My Writing Process

My writing process used to be to just throw something at the wall and hope it sticks (or however that very bizarre expression goes). I didn’t know much else than just write. That was something that really bit me in the butt in the long term, though, just writing and hoping it’d work. That’s not to say you have to be a plotter—someone who writes out everything—but back then, I didn’t even know the basic of story structure. I’d write scenes as they popped into my head without worrying about connecting the dots later, tying all the loose ends up. As I went on in my journey, learning more and more about story structure and familiarizing myself with the way it works, things seemed to fall in place. Save the Cat Writes a Novel was a huge help for me in this. And now, just before I sit down to begin writing any story of mine, I give that book a read-through.

Because of my struggles with throwing things at the wall in the past, I became an outliner. I’d outline as much as the story as I could—usually the story beats and chapter outlines—before beginning to write—sometimes I wouldn’t finish my outline before I’d be just itching to start. But having a clear idea of what you want to write—outlining or not—is important. A beginning and an end are important. As long as you know where you’re going, the fun is in the journey!

*Book Tour & Giveaway* Esperanza by Sandra C. Lopez-GUEST POST

A Latina Story 
by Sandra C. Lopez 
Genre: Teen Fiction 

Fourteen-year old Esperanza Ignacio could only think of a few words to sum up her life: crap, crap, crap! She was born into a poor Latino family living in a small crummy apartment in the barrio side of town, where the graffiti chiseled more the souls and character of the residents than it impacted the exterior looks of the buildings. Her father was a drunken gambler, and wife-beater who, one cold night, got arrested after a violent intrusion. Her entire circle of relatives consisted of nothing but formers- former drug-addicts, former gangsters and gang-bangers, former alcoholics, former everything. Yep, her life was nothing but a huge load of crap. And she hadn't even started high school yet. 

After surviving a scorching summer heat, Esperanza enters the unfamiliar world of high-school with a tight knot in her stomach. On the very first day, she is sucked into a blunder of catastrophic events beginning with accidentally running into the world's BIGGEST bully. Now, she has made herself the prime target for a main course. And, to top it all off, she has to see this girl everyday in P.E! P.E.-the one class Esperanza truly despises the most. Could life be any worse for her? Well, her family could take in a relative hopped up on drugs, a probable shooting can take place right in front of her, and Esperanza could also sit and listen to the crazed ranting of her loud psychotic mother. Oh, wait, all that does happen. To make things even easier, her best friend, Carla, won't stop trying to marry her off to her twin brother, Carlos. And she has these two puny siblings constantly vying for her attention. God, it's a wonder she doesn't strap herself in a straight jacket and pretend to be Elvis. Nonetheless, Esperanza attempts to get through it all. She is a smart and ambitious young kid struggling to survive her life while fighting to make her mark on the world. Her story is filled with pain, strength, and too much loud bickering. It carries a voice enriched with barrio slang and sarcastic humor. Esperanza illustrates what persistent Latino youth can achieve when they get back up after a fall and keep on walking straight into college. 

"Esperanza is an admirable and too real story of many Latino youths lacking role models, who find themselves lost and isolated in the paved jungles of the inner cities and overwhelmed by the dissonance of barrio life. Sandra C. Lopez has created a resilient and likeable character, Esperanza, who seems closer to a naked truth-seeker than to a barrio kid-desperately trying to get out of a crappy world, but not knowing exactly where she was going to. Highly Recommended." 

Andrea Alessandra, University of California, Berkeley 

"Sandra López is a fresh and resonant voice from the Hispanic rainbow."

Coming back a celebrity

By Sandra Lopez

For those of you who have heard be speak at a book signing or an author panel, then you know the story of how I got into the writing gig. But for those of you who are just joining us, I’ll tell it again.

I started writing my first teen fiction novel, Esperanza, when I entered my first year of junior college, fresh out of high school. The book was about a 14-year old Mexican-American girl who wanted to get out of the barrio and make something of her life. I wrote this story without the help of a computer while taking a full load of classes 5 days a week. When I finally finished it, I stacked it on the shelf so it could collect dust forever. I had absolutely NO intention of having it published as being an author was something I thought I could never do when I was growing up. But, one day, I decided to pitch it to some publishing houses out there. Out of 40 letters I sent out, 35 came back rejected and the rest didn’t come back at all. I was about to give up on the whole thing when I got a call from the editor of Floricanto Press asking to see the rest of my manuscript. Four months later, I received a contract. Then two years after that, I was holding my first published book. And all this happened WHILE I was still in college!

Since then, I have written a sequel to my first book called Beyond the Gardens, and graduated with a Bachelors degree from Cal State Fullerton. To this day, I spend my free time visiting colleges and local libraries talking about my books and the writing process.

A common misconception most people have about authors is that they are rich. That’s so not true. I don’t have a butler or a chauffeur or diamond earrings or a mansion made out of gold. Would I like to have all that? Hell yeah! Yes, I would like to be on the best-seller’s list. Yes, I would like my books to be transformed into movies. And, yes, I would like to make all that money from just sitting on my butt and writing! But, alas, like most other writers, I do have a day job. I just do events whenever I can.

Now, I don’t think much has changed since I got into the writing business. I mean, it’s not like I get stopped on the streets whenever a fan recognizes me. I’m still living a normal, everyday life. The only difference is that I get asked for autographs more often. Let me tell you, it’s way different than when you had to sign yearbooks in school. And I feel honored every time.

But does this make me a “celebrity?” Well, a few people do, especially the kids. I actually came back a “celebrity” when I went to go visit my old school district.

Sometime ago, I got an email from a lady that works for the district. She was ecstatic to learn from the
internet that I was from the local area and now an AUTHOR. She called me a great role model for young kids and absolutely insisted that I meet up with her to discuss a possibility of talking to the classrooms of the district. So that's what I did.

I met up with Ann (that's her name, BTW), who hit the floor at the first sight of me (maybe I
should've brushed my hair or something, or it might have something to do with the fact that I'm some sort of celebrity now.) Anyway, after she breathed a few times, I proceeded to talk about how I got started in writing and what, if anything, led me to take on this goal when I was in school. For a second, I thought Ann was going to have a stroke. Apparently, she couldn't contain herself because before I could even say anything else, she rushed to the phone to ask if the superintendent could spare a few moments to meet me at that point. Then ten minutes later, we met up with the superintendent, who I relayed my life story and writing career to. Both of them were so amazed by my accomplishment that they purchased 8 copies of my books right on the spot. Even the secretary was in awe. And when I told him that I was the designer of my website, they were that much more impressed.

By the end of the meeting, they referred me as "a product of their school system." It actually made me wonder: Did I have anything to do this, or was it all them?

In any sense, it was good to go back and recall all those memories in school. I even met up with my old Vice Principal in Jr. High. Of course, he didn't
remember me, but I remembered him (vaguely). See, I'm not that old.

It's going to be great to speak to the students next year. I will tell all of them that it IS possible to make something of yourself and come back a celebrity.

Can Tim open his heart wide enough to let in a beautiful mother and her four little girls? Or will his Southern Belle turn her back on him and walk away from their happily-ever-after?

You’re never too old to follow your dream
Hometown girl Kelly (Coleman) Fletcher, a graduate of Dunwoody High, has always pursued her dream to be a performer. Marriage, motherhood, and a career detour didn’t deter her.
She and her dream have found their way into the pages of the Crier quite a few times. The first time she made the paper, her picture landed on the front page when, as a singer/dancer at Hersheypark in Pennsylvania during high school summers, she was chosen to go to China as part of the Hersheypark group.
Her dream took her to Valdosta State University as a Theater Major, where she says, “I got incredible training as an actor and singer.” After graduating with a BFA, hitting the Big Apple, performing on cruise ships, and then in Nashville with her singer/songwriter husband Ladd, she returned to Dunwoody to raise a family.
She was the Creative Programming Director at Dunwoody Community Church for 14 years, and the production of “Narnia,” in which she played the White Witch, was featured in the Crier as was her performance in “The Taffetas” at the Stage Door Players.
In shock when her church position went away in 2011, she was invited to join the National Tour, “Remember When Rock Was Young – the Elton John Tribute” as a back-up singer and traveled the USA. With the dream still intact but taking a back seat, and with her sons entering college, she took a corporate job with the understanding that she’d also be playing rock star on the weekends.
Fast forward a few years, and you’ll discover Kelly’s latest incarnation as the “Singing Author.” While touring and working her day job, she began writing romance novels under the pen name, KG Fletcher. She published her first book, “Unexpected,” in 2016 and has now published another six, one of which hit #3 on the Amazon bestseller’s list last December.
But wait, there’s more. This year, Kelly was invited to be one of the guest artists at her alma mater, Valdost State University for the thirtieth season of its Peach State Summer Theatre. She’ll perform in three rotating musicals; playing Donna in “Mamma Mia,” Marmee in “Little Women,” and Mrs. Childs in “Crazy for You.” The season kicks off June 7 with “Mamma Mia” and runs through July 21. Visit for information and tickets.
With that opportunity on the horizon, Kelly took the leap of faith to quit her day job and follow her dream fulltime. She calls this her second act. She’ll continue writing throughout the summer shows, and when the season ends, she’ll rejoin the Elton John tour and release another two books by the end of this year.
What’s next for Kelly? When she returns to Dunwoody, she’ll start booking her cabaret act, “The Novel Romantic ~ an unexpected evening of sweet & spicy love.” Her website says it best:
“There’s a story behind everyone’s journey and KG Fletcher would like to invite you to spend the evening with her as she performs classic standards and Broadway favorites. ​Her story of determination and second chances
will leave you breathless and wanting more! KG has combined writing with her years as a professional singer
to bring you a musical evening filled with romance, heartache, love, and suspense.”
Speaking with Kelly brings to mind the song “The Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha,” though she’s never, ever seen her dream as impossible. I’m humming that tune as I consider the message from Kelly’s amazing story—We’re never too old to follow our dreams!
