Mystery - Crime

Mystery Thrillers from Nancy Rathbun

Nanci Rathbun is a lifelong reader of mysteries - historical, contemporary, futuristic, paranormal, hard-boiled, cozy ... you can find them all on her bookshelves. She brings logic and planning to her writing from a background as an IT project manager, and attention to characters and dialog from her second career as a Congregationalist minister.

Nanci grew up an Army brat, living in Germany, France and Korea, as well as several states in the U.S. After her dad retired from the service, the family settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There, Nanci raised her daughter and son, while working at AT&T. She never expected to move, but when her second grandchild was on the way, she wanted to be closer. One of her greatest joys is hearing her three granddaughters shout 'Nana' when she comes in their front door in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Nanci's Maltipoo, Teeny, and she now live in Wellington, Colorado. No matter where she makes her home, she will always be a Green Bay Packers fan.

Crimes in every state capital in this clever mystery series

"Making the world a better place by telling stories and helping others share theirs."

Troy Lambert is a freelance writer, author, editor, and publisher who has dreamed of writing books since he was a young boy. He wrote his first book, George and the Giant Castle, when he was six years old. After being told by teachers, counselors, and many people around him that writing was a great hobby, but not a great way to make a living, Troy explored other money-making options.

After nearly three decades amassing a collection of name tags, hairnets, and various careers, he finally found the way to fulfill his dream of writing full-time and making a living at it. He currently has written over two-dozen books including ghostwriting projects, is a freelance writer, content strategist, ghostwriter, publisher, and occasional editor.

Troy lives, works, and plays in Boise, Idaho with his wife and a pack of very talented dogs who are occasionally enlisted to write blog posts and book blurbs. His fiction work can be found at fictionupdates.troylambertwrites.com and you can learn more about writing for a living at writingasabusiness.troylambertwrites.com.

Troy writes the Capital City Murders series with fellow author Stuart Gustafson.

Modern Mysteries by Susan Keene

Susan can whip up a gourmet meal, build a table in her workshop, or draw a picture (with the aid of a lightbox).

She writes full time. A lot of her off time is taken up with eight rescue dogs who made their way to her farm over the years. Chili, her dachshund, is the only one that is not a rescue. So it brings the total to nine.

Chili is featured in the Kate Nash Mystery series. She comes at the end of volume one and becomes a part of the fictional family.

You can find Susan on Facebook at Susan Keene's Author Page, her website, susankeeneauthor.com

Gemini Moon: Murder under The Italian Moon (Lella York Mysteries Book 1)A True-Life Murder Mystery with a Connection to Author Maria Grazia Swan!

Most of my stories are inspired by real events and Gemini Moon is not only inspired by something nefarious that really happened, but more so because the victim was a personal friend. She died of a gunshot to the head. Her death was ruled accidental. The shooter? Her husband. This happened in 1990, in Southern California. I knew I had to write about it, I also knew I wanted to do it right.
