Spring, 1916. Best friends Tulsa May Bruder and Luther Briggs are on a mission. After a very public jilting, everybody is looking at Tulsa May with such sad, sorrowful eyes.

Visions and voices reach out to her from the intense pain. Is her father’s spirit trying to contact her? Or is she going crazy? Now is not a good time to be crazy.

I’m so pleased to announce that the audiobook Wild Oats by Pamela Morsi has launched! It went live on Audible*, Amazon, and iTunes (search by title) around June 1 and almost 30 copies have sold to date. It’s off to a good start!
This project was such a fun one for me. I appreciate Pamela’s writing and story weaving. Plus I get to use my own dialect for a change! The characters are down to earth yet interesting. This story drew me in quickly. I’m not usually a historical romance fan necessarily but this one caught my attention because the setting is my old stomping grounds, Oklahoma, just before statehood.
The background story Pam talked about in her launch day newsletter added a whole other layer of interest too. I always love to hear about an author’s story inspiration. Turns out that for Wild Oats she was trying to break the romance genre by creating a story with the anti-romance-book-hero as the hero. LOL! That plan makes for some not-so-suave moments that are endearing and funny.
Listen in and be sure to pick it up soon if you like it. Enjoy!
Hetta Coffey is a sassy Texan with a snazzy yacht and she’s not afraid to use it!
After several months of cruising Mexico’s hauntingly beautiful Sea of Cortez, Hetta’s in Puerto Escondido, a place once described by author John Steinbeck as “a magic harbor.” Anchored out, swaying on the hook at the whim of breeze and tide, surrounded by magnificent views and turquoise water can be magical. Stuck at anchor alone? Not so much.
So when her best friend, Jan, gets them an invite to a party at a nearby luxury resort hosted by a Japanese businessman—all expenses paid—Hetta figures, why not? Why turn down an evening of free food and booze? And besides, what could possibly go wrong?
With Hetta involved? Plenty.
Not only are she and Jan soon up to their necks in hot sake, a succession of unsavory intruders sends Hetta scurrying for a safe harbor, but not before she reaches the conclusion that some folks just need killin’.
Narrated by Stevie Puckett, Warren Adler’s Immaculate Deception, a Fiona Fitsgerald mystery, is now available in audio!
When an outspoken senator is found dead, there isn’t enough evidence to point to the senator’s death as a suicide, as everyone thinks. There is something just too perfect about the life of Frances “Frankie” McGuire-mother, Irish Catholic congresswoman from Boston, and powerful pro-life senator. Sergeant Fiona Fitzgerald, daughter of a Senator, takes nothing at face value, especially when politics are involved. Everyone in Washington has a secret, and the senator’s personal world turns out to be much more complicated than anyone ever knew. A pregnancy, an estranged husband, a mistress, and the fragility of life-both wanted and unwanted-collide, leaving Fiona to sort out the consequences of the messy case. Fiona faces the issues of abortion and women’s rights just as she is contemplating her own pregnancy, with or without a steady man in her life.
Book #3 of Warren Adler’s 9-book Fiona Fitzgerald Mystery Series is now an audio book! Stevie Puckett narrates Death of a Washington Madam.
The elderly mother of the Governor of Virginia, an icon of Washington society, is found dead and sexually assaulted in her posh Washington, DC, residence. Metropolitan Police detective Fiona Fitzgerald investigates the horrifying crime. As a senator’s daughter, she has the advantage of knowing the world of Washington’s privileged. Young Martine, the accused, has no advantages. He was not raised in a family with political leverage and does not understand the inner-workings and secrets of Washington’s politicians. Then there is the devoted servant, the status-hungry daughter-in-law, the drugs, power, and money-but where does the truth lie within this complicated family drama? Through it all, Fiona wrestles with her own feelings about marriage as she considers marriage to a former general, who is now mounting a massive offensive for her hand. Will an inside look at one Washington marriage-and all of its dirty little secrets-help her choose? Fiona must battle both privilege and prejudice as she uncovers the inevitable truth behind the political facade.
