Writing Can Be Murder!
Is there life on other planets? Does your love life need a boost? Do you believe in vampires? Don't you wish you were that stylish chick-lit kind of girl? All of these questions seem a little strange, but not if you are attending a book talk...
When local writers present their books at the Pecan Bayou Library, one author gets a killer review. Betsy Livingston, there to talk about her own gripping book on helpful hints around the house, finds herself the prime suspect for the murder. Join Betsy in her second mystery as she tries to clear her own name in this hilarious tale of small town Texas life and murder.
Teresa Trent writes her Pecan Bayou Mystery Series from Houston, Texas. With a father in the army, her family moved often finally settling in Colorado. Living in Texas for the last 18 years she loves the people and even the weather. Teresa includes Danny, a character with Down Syndrome in her Pecan Bayou family and in real life is the mother of an adult son with Down Syndrome/PDD. Creating the character of Danny and all of the other inhabitants of Pecan Bayou has been a joy for her. Even though she lives in the big city, her writing is influenced by all of the interesting people she finds in small towns and the sense of family that is woven through them all.
Rocky has always been one of my favorite characters. He shows up in every book pushing Betsy into awkward situations. Once I put Rocky into a scene, I can't stop him. He's all about selling those newspapers. Now he wants her to be creative in the kitchen? Betsy can bake but the creativity part could be a problem.
Overdue for Murder
Rocky Whitson, the editor of the paper, crackled on the other end.
