Happy Valentine’s Day! Black as Death is here. A good day for chocolates, coffee, and a little murder.

From the imaginations of 5 highly caffeinated authors comes this delightful collection of coffee-themed cozy mysteries. Available now on Amazon in Kindle and print versions.

My novella: A Steamy Cup of Murder kicks off the anthology.

Babe Cuckoo is leaving the opera world to take the stage as a partner in her old flame’s coffeehouse and performance venue. But when a rival merchant is murdered, Babe finds herself in extra-hot espresso. With the help of her ghost-whispering niece, a practical joking spirit, and a constant flow of caffeine, Babe must lure the killer into the spotlight and clear her business partner’s name or her lifesavings won’t fill a demitasse.

Excited to announce my novella A Steamy Cup of Murder will be published in a collection of cozy mysteries: Black As Death.

All of the five included stories center around a coffee shop. What goes better together than books and coffee? (Books and wine, perhaps? Maybe that'll be next!)

The ebook and paperback will be available on February 14. I'm excited to share the adventures of Babe Cuckoo with you.
