I'm thrilled - over the moon - that my third full-length novel in the Spy Shop Mystery series, STIFF LIZARD, is done, published, and ready for readers. I took me a bit longer than I had planned (hello Lisa, it was the year of covid), and I needed to bust through several mental logjams to get to the finish line. I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Authors always say that. Who is going to say, "honestly, it's not that great." No one.
This is true, but I am honestly happy with the wild layers within the book:
- Iguanas... everywhere.
- Dale Carnegie (seriously)
- A weirdo cruise line that offers brunch buffets themed to the novel Brave New World.
- Lizard Liquidators
- Bad %$^ Snake Tree
- A gigolo named Rascal
- A course in writing erotic poetry for real men.
- Spy gadgets and parkour - goes without saying.
Don't worry, the book is still PG13 - it's a contemporary cozy, or what I call a cozy with an edge.
I'll be doing a Facebook Live session on March 31st. Please join me here. I write quirky mysteries because it's fun for me and, I hope, fun for the reader. And we all need more fun in life, right?
