How One Mystery Author Picks Settings – by MTW Author Ritter Ames

ritter-ames-curved-building-busesOne of my favorite things about writing the Bodies of Art Mysteries is the fast pace and the global settings. Though, just because my main character is an art recover expert that doesn’t mean all the action takes place in museums. My characters don’t need a gym membership because they’re on the run most of the time. For instance, a scene in the first book in the series, COUNTERFEIT CONSPIRACIES, involved gunfire, London streets crowded with iconic double-decker buses, various-sized lorries (yep, we’d say trucks in the U.S., but lorry sounds much more Brit), and my characters escaping via a legendary black cab. 

 Until bullets shattered the windows.

To clarify, I’ve never had windows shot out of my cabs, but some crazy vehicle-related adventures have happened to me while visiting Jolly Old London-town. One event happened when we traveled there in spring 2008 with two 18-year-olds—who knew everything and constantly reminded us ‘oldsters’ we could just go off sightseeing and not worry about them. Fat chance.

Instead, tables got turned. Continue reading “How One Mystery Author Picks Settings – by MTW Author Ritter Ames”

Book Review: Don’t Look Back (Land’s End Book 2) by MTW Author Sherrie Frontz

If you’re looking for action in your serial killer reading stack, be sure you’ve added Don’t Look Back, Book 2 in the Land’s End series by Sherrie Frontz. In the first 5 chapters, I had already fallen in love with co-protagonist, Kellyn Grindstaff, and found her plight in life realistic and relatable in every aspect. It’s always fun to wish good things for the heroine of the story, but Kellyn and her best friend’s mom, Sam, have wonderful sympathetic pull on readers heartstrings from the first page.

MTW Interview with Brian Wutz, Author of The Jingo Series

Brian Wutz was inspired by a scandal in the police department of the City of Fairview, Tennessee to write The Jingo.  In the novel the entire town, people, narrative, actions, and events are fictionalized. However, the City of Fairview did in fact struggle with a scandal in the police department that began with the resignation of a detective after only one day on the job and ended with the Chief of Police retiring, twice, in a three month period. Continue reading “MTW Interview with Brian Wutz, Author of The Jingo Series”

Book Review of Award Winning: Murder in Absentia by MTW Author Assaph Mehr

I recently had the distinct pleasure of reading Murder in Absentia by Assaph Mehr. While this book was not originally in my Goodreads list of books to read before I die, I wanted to broaden my horizons and dove into an amazing book that opened my eyes to a new sub-genre of writing art that changed the way I will seek out future reading material. Murder in Absentia is a must-read for anyone who is intrigued by detectives, mystery, magic, and fantastical historical setting.  Without hesitation and reservation, this book nailed a 5 stars out of 5 for me.

This is what changed my mind about being a genre snob.
