Dead Fred Goes to Florida

Last week, I was in Florida on a writing retreat. It was a great time spent on thP1070712e west coast with writing friends. Lots of wonderful things happened while I was there: I started a new project, I spent time with my super agent/friend, and I saw a baby dolphin off the coast of Sanibel Island. But the most wonderful thing was a call from my an editor to tell me I was a national bestselling author since my Amish Quilt Shop Mysteries hit the Barnes and Noble bestseller’s list. I was completely shocked and overjoyed! I have my fabulous readers to thank for making this happens. Thank you! It’s something I never dared to dream of. You always encourage me to write more and dream bigger.

Of course, Dead Fred tagged along to the Sunshine State. Enjoy his photo journal!

About the novel:

When Angela Braddock enters her quilts in an Amish auction, she never expects one of her neighbors to end up going, going, gone….

Angie is finding her niche as the new owner of her late aunt’s Amish quilt shop, Running Stitch. But as the summer is winding down, so is business. To bolster support for the shop, Angie decides to sell her quilts in the Rolling Brook Amish Auction, including some of her aunt’s most prized works.

The quilts promise to be a hit—but the gavel comes down on the lively event when Angie stumbles upon the body of township trustee Wanda Hunt behind a canning shed. The cause of death: a poisoned blueberry fry pie from Rachel Miller’s bakery table. Now Angie’s closest friend is a murder suspect. With Angie taking the lead, she and the other women of her aunt’s quilting circle set out to patch together the clues and stop a killer set on shredding the simple peace of Rolling Brook.

Includes Quilting Tips!

I’m celebrating the novel’s release by giving away two Amish charm bracelets. There will be two winners!
