First Author Interview!!

This is amazing... I have just finished my first manuscript for the Vintage Kitchen Mystery series, which will be published by Berkley Prime Crime. My due date was November 30th, and I made it... yay! Now I can heave a huge sigh of relief, and start to get nervous for the editor reading it, (nail biting time) which she won't be able to do until the new year.

I can also begin some of the fun stuff, like working on this blog! I have been buying up vintage cookbooks lately, and am going to share some recipes from them, and I want to photogrpah some of my vintage cookware, as well as the infamous (or soon to be infamous!) Hoosier cabinet that inspired Hoosier Dead Guy?, the working title for the first book in the Vintage Kitchen Mystery series.

The most fun I've had lately is this wonderful author interview with Dorothy Dreyer of We Do Write, a great blog dedicated to interviews of aspiring and new writers. She made the interview so much fun, and the photo illustrations are wonderful. I collect teacups, too, as well as vintage cookware, and I swear she snuck in to my cupboards and got a few of the teacups out for the stack she has illustrating the blog! Drop in and learn more about me, Vintage Kitchen Mysteries, and Hoosier Dead Guy?.


  1. Congratulations! It's such a thrill to finally get published - I know all too well. And what's more, even better that you can forget about it for a little while and have fun this holiday!

  2. Thanks, Hannah. This is the accomplishment of a lifelong goal!

  3. I am a Hoosier at Heart living in NC now and can't wait till your book comes out! When is it coming out by the way? Happy Reading, Janean Reviewer for Night Owl Romance

  4. I don't know when it's coming out... yet. I'm hoping to have a publication date sooooon!!!

    Can you tell I'm just a wee bit anxious?
