Gwen Mayo and I have both contracted COVID. We are already vaccinated and on the mend, but will be following the library's guidelines (and, I hope, negative COVID tests) to protect the safety of our readers.
This year has been filled with ups and downs (but aren't they all)?
The year is going to start with a bang, and will keep moving.

I play Claudia, a bookstore owner and publisher. Am I the killer? Tune in and find out.
I haven't posted here in quite a while. It's not that I haven't been busy, even though there's been a pandemic. I've been working from home on the Day Job, and I've begun serious writing on Ybor City Blues, which will be the third Snowbirds book. Gwen has been busy with Mustering Out, which will be the fourth book.
In editing news: we recently released a Mardi Gras anthology, our second. I'm afraid we have no stories in this volume, but there are plenty of good tales.
Recently, Jools Aguemont hosted us on her new podcast, Introducing Indie Authors. Gwen Mayo and I had a great time talking about things like: how we each got into writing, how we research our stories, and how we're able to write the Three Snowbirds series, even though our approach to writing is very different.
Visit our promo page at Escapes with Dollycas from today through February 18th for articles, reviews, and ways to enter the giveaway for free copies of Murder at the Million Dollar Pier!
The Florida Gulf Coast chapter of Sisters in Crime honored Agatha Christie in the September meeting. We had cake, candy, a trivia contest, and a door prize.
Me and my co-author/Agatha Christie trivia maven. We love dress-up!
The door prize, which includes our first novel and an ARC of the sequel!
Me trying to channel my best Teddy Lawless. She would have been too vain to wear her spectacles, but I would trip over furniture without them.
Gwen and I have been making progress on the sequel to Murder on the Mullet Express. Below are some previews from the upcoming Three Snowbirds adventure. If you attended Bouchercon in 2018, the location should look rather familiar!
