Meet Sherri Bryan and the Charlotte Denver Cozy Mystery Series!

When I was growing up, I carried a book everywhere I went. Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl were my favourites. 

Long story short, years later and keen for a new adventure, I moved to Spain to open a marina-front café barwhich was the inspiration for the series. 
It was fabulous place to work, overlooking the sea and the boats, but with no experience of running a café, and very limited Spanish, it was the most challenging, most terrifying, but absolutely the most brilliant thing I've ever done...and the hardest I've ever worked! 

In 2015, I read my first cozy mystery and knew I'd found a genre I loved to read, and wanted to write in. My first book, 'Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse', followed a few months later in May of the same year and the eighth book in that series is due for publication in July 2017. A new series with a celestial theme will follow shortly… 

When I’m not scribbling down ideas for new stories, or tapping away on my laptop, you’ll most likely find me with my nose in a book (I read everything from mysteries and romance to biographies and cookbooks), rustling up something experimental in the kitchen, or out with my gorgeous rescue dog, George, who has me well and truly wrapped around his little paw. 
Sherri's first book in the series, 'Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse', is free to download for Kindle at mybook.to/CharlotteDenver1 or for iBooks, Nook and Kobo at https://books2read.com/u/319E73.

Meet Anna Celeste Burke and the Georgie Shaw Mysteries!

An award-winning and USA Today Best-selling author, Anna enjoys snooping into life's mysteries with fun, fiction, & food—California style! Her books include the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the Corsario Cove Cozy Mystery series set on California’s Central Coast, and The Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series set in Orange County, California--the OC. 


I'd love to have you meet Georgie Shaw, Detective Jack Wheeler, Miles, and Ella. This series is set against the backdrop of Marvelous Marley World, an entertainment empire built on the success of a cartoon cat. The idea of Marvelous Marley World and some of what goes on there is loosely based on my experience as a chef at Walt Disney World. No murders while I "worked for the mouse" at the "mouse factory" as we referred to the "happiest place on earth," but there was plenty of mayhem. Lots of interesting, quirky characters, too. Like Disney, Marvelous Marley World isn't always so marvelous! Always intriguing and a unique setting for a cozy mystery series. 


I hope you'll enjoy the fun, food, cats, and second chance romance that come with the murder, mayhem, and mystery in this series. 


Like all the books in this series, the box set is included in Kindle Unlimited so it will be free to KU subscribers!

Before I wrote, I read. Voraciously. When I wasn’t able to read, I listened to audio books on tape or CD. Still do.

My name is Robynn E Sheahan and I live and write from the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. 

I started to dabble in writing while working as a Paramedic/Firefighter in Northern California. Trust me, it’s not like it appears on TV. There was plenty of time for books. 

Ideas from dreams follow me into warm sunny days or the quiet of falling snow. What ifs feed a vivid imagination. Even miss-typed phrases may lead to an aha moment. Brain storming sessions standing in windy, dark parking lots with fellow writers release thoughts that pry at the corners of my mind, grasping for purchase. Sometimes the ideas pursue me, with persistence. 

About three years ago the dabbling became serious when worlds and characters screamed for, no, demanded attention. So I wrote my first manuscript. Critiques and rewrites filled the next two years.

I now had STORM OF ARRANON, the first book in the series.
