Meet Sam Berretti

Sam Berretti was born and raised in the High Plains city of Lubbock, Texas. Cotton was king and oil wells and cattle were always close by. The land was as flat as his mother’s tattered ironing board and Spring was always ushered in with dust storms, tumble weeds and tornadoes. Sam moved to Florida to attend the University of Florida, met a woman who he says was gracious enough to allow him to marry her and raised two amazing children. Sam is an avid naturalist and photographer as well as an author. Although writing started at an early age and took many forms, mystery fiction has always been a favorite. “When I began writing I was inspired by a number of authors like Lee Child, Sue Grafton, Janet Evanovich, Robert Crais, and Nora Roberts (as J.D. Robb). Writers creating flawed characters overcoming horrific hurdles and solving complex mysteries. I’ve tried to craft my own writing after their styles of tight action, subtle humor, and unique characters. Added to this a sprinkling of the paranormal and romance for flavor. I don’t have a favorite book as much as favorite series. I always enjoy reading the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child. He has an uncanny way of describing characters and action scenes. His plots are believable and the endings are solid.”

Meet P.C. James

I’ve always loved mysteries, especially those involving Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple. Perhaps because Miss Marple reminded me of my aunts when I was growing up. But Christie never told us much about Miss Marple’s earlier life. When writing my own elderly super-sleuth series, I will trace her career from the start. As you’ll see if you follow the Miss Riddell Cozy Mysteries over the coming years – from this statement, you can deduce I’m not a fast writer.

However, this is my Bio, not Miss Riddell’s, so here goes with all you need to know about me: I’m a retired manager and a budding writer. When I’m not staring at the computer screen in the hope inspiration will strike, you’ll find me running, walking, and taking wildlife photographs around Whitby, Canada. My series begins in northern England because that was my home growing up and that’s also the home of so many great cozy mysteries. Stay with me though because the stories will take us to many different places around the world.

Frank Mueller, the Alaskan Detective is close to retirement. He’s been through three marriages and two stints in rehab. He is on probation with the force.

WOW! What a book! I can’t say enough good things about Mr. Nicholson and this book. The pace is good, the suspense is good and it has some great twists and turns. For those of us who have never traveled to Alaska and Canada, it was a refreshing venue. And best of all, the ending really caught me by surprise.
