A day in my life…that depends on which day. Let’s go with a typical work day I suppose, though even those have been chaotic for the last several months. Generally the plan is: up at 5:30am with an alarm clock named Shadow whose gentle pressure on my arm becomes soft groans and then wet licks on my cheek if I don’t respond. If he was my husband it would be a little weird, or maybe a lot weird, but then, it would also mean I was in a beautiful dream because Greg died a few months ago. Anyway, I digress. Shadow and I go for a run, then a quick shower for me and a kiss on both cheeks by my great-A ..read more

I wonder if I should put my shoes on? Do you think that would stop a murderer? Let me explain, no wait! You’ll never believe how good things are going for TJ and me. I’m Cory Leigh Jones and he’s Trevor Lee Jones and this is our first-year anniversary. He’s just the love of my life and he fully supports my amateur sleuthing. Well, not fully supporting, but certainly helpful. And I sure hope he investigates my murder if Maggie finds me and murders me today. Or any day for that matter. But really, I should be pretty easy to find because I’m in the same hospital as her mother-in-law. It was a sur ..read more

When my beloved husband John died suddenly leaving me with an eleven- year-old to raise, I had to take stock of my life. John and I had always loved the towns in the Berkshires and had hoped to retire there. After a short grieving time, I returned to the small town of Pittman in the Berkshires, purchased Alexander’s Shoe Store, and converted it into the Bookworm Shop. When I opened, I hoped to cater not only to the local clientele, but to all the tourists who flocked to the Berkshires for the summer theater and music scene and in the winter to the mountain towns for the wonderful skiing. After ..read more

Me: I’m traveling on a paddle steamer from New Orleans to Memphis, and Mosey has agreed to meet me at the marina in Hembree. I’m here now on the veranda overlooking the river. It’s a warm March evening just before sunset, and Mosey’s making her way across the swinging foot bridge. It’s a quick stop, so I’ve already ordered a couple of mojitos, Mosey’s favorite cocktail. Here she comes now. Have a seat, Mosey, and since we don’t have long, let’s get down to brass tacks. Tell me, Ms. Mosey Frye, who are you anyway? Mosey: Who am I? Hard to say. Strictly speaking, my name isn’t Mosey. It’s Anne M ..read more

A Word With Francelia Belton

Why do you write in the genre you write in? It has to do with a lot of the television shows I watched in my youth. I love the TV anthology shows. I watched Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Amazing Stories, Tales From the Crypt, Tales from the Darkside. You name it, I was watching it. I think that I liked that every week it was a new story that involved a new set of characters. It’s a way to explore and see how different walks of life experience so many different scenarios or circumstances. What would I do if my doll could talk back? What would I do if a bag of mo ..read more

I woke up this morning, bolt upright, heartbeat pounding, screaming, “Objection!” Three days ago, I finished trying the case that inspired my nightmare. The jury had been deliberating for two full days already. Nary a peep from them the entire time. Not a question. Not a request for testimony review. Nothing. What could they be talking about? A pink sliver of dawn glimmered over the San Francisco Bay. The other side of my bed was cold. That’s when I remembered my husband, Jake, had moved out weeks earlier. It still surprised me every time I realized it. What had gone wrong? Was he thinking abo ..read more

Hey there, everybody. I’m Corrine Beedle, otherwise known as Madam Mayor. Yep, I’m the duly elected person in charge here in our little town of South Lick, which is nestled in the hills of Brown County, the prettiest corner of the entire state of Indiana. Normally, we don’t get a whole heck of a lot of excitement in these parts. But let me tell you, when St. Patrick’s Day rolled around this year, that’s exactly what popped up — in the form of a corpse. All’s I was asked to do was be a judge for the Irish cooking competition my favorite chef, Robbie Jordan, was hosting in her country store rest ..read more

Nothing’s more important than family. My family’s big, boisterous, and unapologetically nosy. I’d do anything for them, and they’d move heaven and earth for me. That was proven once again when they helped me realize my dream of opening a family-owned West Indian bakery in Little Caribbean, our neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. We immigrated to the United States from Grenada when I was very young. My happiest memories are of us preparing meals together. I’d been bullied from elementary school even through college. So for me, our kitchen was a magical space filled with unconditional love. It w ..read more
