VERDICT: Bates excels at the principles of a beloved cozy mystery, such as nosy neighbors, even a nagging mother, and a swoon-worthy love attention, while still maintaining the story modern through the use of social networking and shared technologies.

Where height and age has been a bonus, she's taught school, specifically 8th quality and hasn't run screaming in the building nonetheless. Aside from writing, she enjoys gardening, traveling with her husband, and researching the Pacific Northwest, her residence.
Following a recurrence of breast cancer, '' Burke has chosen to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a poor, hungry artist with phrases since her medium.

Pamela Burford comes out of a family that is funny. You might take that any way you desire. She was raised in a family that valued laughter over all, so of course was a sense of comedy. Is it no wonder that that their kids are in stand-up comedy and improv? Oh, and here's another enjoyable household reality: Pamela's identical twin sister, Patricia Ryan, aka P.B. Ryan, is also a published novelist. Patricia is the Good Twin, and Pamela knows exactly what that makes her. But hey, Evil Twins have fun!
It should come as no surprise that what Pamela writes is infused with her unique brand of comedy, from her feel-good modern romance and romantic suspense books to her popular Jane Delaney mystery series, including snarky “Death Diva” Jane, her puppy sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot. Murray, Pamela's own poodle, needs you to understand that any similarities between himself and high-strung Sexy Beast are purely coincidental.
Pamela is the proud founder and former president of Long Island Romance Writers, Inc., a chapter of Romance Writers of America. That which excites her most is hearing from readers, although her books sold millions of copies and have won awards. Swing by and say hi at www.pamelaburford.com.

Anne Hagan is an East Central Ohio established government worker writer and by day through the night. Her wife live in a tiny town that is even more compact than the Morelville of her fiction novels and they would not have it any other way. The spouse of Anne has considered it and grew up there. Although it's an ultra-conservative rural community, they are surrounded there by family, longtime friends and several other amazing people with open minds and hearts. They enjoy spending time with Anne's kid along with his wife, with their nieces and nephews and doing a number of the things you've read about in her books or that will be 'fictitiously' integrated into future Morelville Mysteries and Cozies series books. If you have learned about a hobby or a sport in show, they probably enjoy doing it themselves or somebody quite near them does.
Anne and her wife would be the co-owners of a haunted home: Hagan's House of Horrors. Much as her dream has always been to write fiction, her partner's dream has been to create it via the medium of horror. They even took their haunt operation commercial in 2015. See them as they mature!
All of Anne's books could be viewed as stand alone works but, since the characters in the two different series and in her single romance book (so far) intertwine, if you'd love to follow along with their stories chronologically, you need to read the novels in the following sequence:
1. Relic: The Morelville Mysteries - Book 1

Hello. I grew up in England, and worked a lot of my early life in the business world of banking and local authorities. I love the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich and now I always knew I’d instead be composing a living than cruising into London every day. I never dreamed it would occur, but after spending some time in Florida I returned to the UK and now I just love writing light-hearted, tender romantic stories using a dose of comedy.
You can usually find me at my house looking out over the beautiful countryside, drinking tea (and the occasional glass of wine) While my hubby and I dream the next story!
