QUIRKY, LOW-KEY ISLAND MYSTERIES & ADVENTURES!

Garrett Dennis lives in upstate New York, where he and his wife serve as housekeeping staff for two rather spoiled dogs. He has graduate degrees in biology and computer science. After a career that ranged from testing experimental drugs (legal ones, and not on himself!) to developing computer operating system software, he decided to retire from the real world and try his hand at writing fiction.

Garrett lived in coastal North Carolina for a while some years back, and the current focus of his writing is a place that's very special to him, the Outer Banks region of North Carolina, which he still visits as often as possible. There are now three books in his Storm Ketchum Adventures series of quirky Outer Banks suspense novels, plus four short Storm Ketchum Tales.

If you're pining for John D. MacDonald and Travis McGee, Storm 'Ketch' Ketchum might be your guy. Like Hemingway's Old Man, he reveres his island and the sea; but unlike the Old Man, he doesn't fish - and despite his solitary nature, he and his boatyard friends find themselves embroiled in coastal intrigue more often than not. If you read the Hardy Boys series as a kid; if you're a fan of Outer Banks lore and the writings of David Stick, Judge Charles Whedbee, or Ben Dixon MacNeill; or if an ecological and literary juxtaposition of the likes of Randy Wayne White, Barbara Kingsolver, and Carl Hiaasen floats your boat, you'll enjoy the Storm Ketchum Adventures!

Keep a weather eye out for the next entry, and connect with Garrett at www.GarrettDennis.com or on Facebook & Twitter.

Get any one of these books for free by signing up to Dennis's newsletter!

The e-book version of the first short Storm Ketchum Tale, AN OLDE CHRISTMAS CAROL, is always FREE everywhere!

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.

Though she is from Columbus, Ohio, Libby lives with her husband, children, and Sam the dog in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

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!
