The Cat Has Spring Fever--But Not Me
One of us spends a lot of time looking out the windows at the snow. One of us wanders through the house, clearly wishing she could walk somewhere more interesting. One of us complains a lot about it in a loud voice. One of us naps, not from exhaustion, but ...

What's a Pre-order?
Of course we know what a pre-order is. You want a book that isn't out yet. You tell Amazon about your longings and they let you sign up to get the book the minute it's available. You don't have to remember the release date and then go look for the book; it ...

Grammar Nazis & Ninjas
Barb, one of the three protagonists, in THE SLEUTH SISTERS, is into grammar big-time. Some have referred to her as a grammar nazi, but I prefer the term grammar ninja , because Barb doesn't go around ordering people to do as she says. She's pretty athletic ...

The Cat as the Villain
Not a real cat. Anyone with cats knows they wouldn't hold still for this! I've read books where the cat is the sleuth. I've read books where the cat is the narrator. I've read books where the cat is the sidekick. How about a book where the cat is the murder...

Guns, Cats, and Quilting--How's That for a Topic?
I'm reading a book by author Alice Duncan, who writes a series I'd call cozy historical with a fake medium as the protagonist. Daisy Gumm needs to earn a living, so she hires out for seances and such, and she always seems to get pulled into solving a crime....

I Really Mean It This Time: Dead Detective #3
Taking the bull by the horns is dangerous, but I had to. The third of the Dead Detective series languished at my publishers for over a year. It had been edited, but that was as far as it got: no cover, no release date. So I asked for the rights back. Luckil...

I'm an IT Person--with D-I-O in the Middle
Today's writer is supposed to know computer stuff. If I run an ad, they'll ask for photos with so many DPIs. It's expected that I will know how to convert the ones I have into the size they want. When I send a manuscript to someone, it has to be in a certai...

On Living in the Woods
My home town in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula is so tiny it's easy to ignore it as you drive through--if you even do that. Since it's not on the road to anywhere important, most people never see it as they whiz by on I-75, miles away. Residents often ...

Story
Tagline
Mystery Author: "Strong Women, Great Stories."
Introduction
I write three series: The Loser Mysteries, The Dead Detective Mysteries & the Simon & Elizabeth (Tudor) Mysteries as well as stand-alones that offer readers "Strong Women, Great Stories."
These days I also answer to Maggie Pill, who writes a cozy sleuth series. Maggie is a lot like Peg, just younger, cooler, and funnier.
Bragging rights
I'm the only person at OHS who ever set the stage on fire.
