I'm really a mystery author! Hard for me to believe because it's always been my secret ambition to write mysteries. Five Kelly O'Connell Mysteries--Skeleton in a Dead Space, No Neighborhood for Old Women, Trouble in a Big Box, Danger Comes Home, and Deception in Strange Places--are now available in print and as e-books. And two Blue Plate Cafe Mysteries, Murder at the Blue Plate Café and Murder at the Tremont House, are also available. In that series, I move from an inner city urban neighborhood to a small town in East Texas.
