Brief Description of Your Business: Murder, mayhem, hairstyling and humor—I write the Southern Beauty Shop mystery novels featuring five women, ages 17-60, who work at Violetta’s Salon in the fictional town of St. Elizabeth, Georgia. The first book in the series, TRESSED TO KILL (Berkley Prime Crime), is available now from Barnes and Noble, Borders, Amazon and other bookstores.
What was your inspiration for writing this book? I have always loved writing. After twenty years as an Air Force intelligence officer, it was time to reinvent myself. I had a moment of epiphany in the Elliott Bay Bookstore in Seattle and embarked on my writing career shortly thereafter. It’s marvy to have a husband who was willing for me to give up a six-figure income to pursue the penury of writing.
