Ginger Simpson’s First Degree Innocent Carrie Lang’s sheltered life ends with a prison sentence for involvement in a bank robbery. Her arrest comes on the day she’s called in sick and stayed inside, so she can’t explain how an eye-witness describes her in great detail, down to the make and model of her car. A terrible mistake has been made, and her insistence of innocence falls on deaf ears. Even her fellow inmates don’t believe her as it’s a claim they all make. Alone in the world, she has no one to turn to for help, and not a single soul to campaign for her freedom…at least until she makes a valuable friend. In the meantime, a plan for retribution is brewing, and naïve Carrie finds herself smack dab in the middle of an evil scheme concocted by the prison bully. A ten year sentence seems mild when she’s threatened with death for refusing to participate. Can Carrie find a way out of this horrible nightmare, or is she destined to spend her days locked in terror, isolation, and the cold gray interior of prison walls? Show more Show less

Please join me in welcoming a peach of a lady, Rochelle Weber. In reading her bio, I had no idea she was an ex-Navy veteran. Let’s hear it for all the veterans and what they give to this country. Moving on, below is a short interview with Rochelle, a chance to get to know her better: 1. What is your favorite book? I don’t really have favorite books; I have favorite authors. They include Robert A. Heinlein, J.K. Rowling, Jonathan and Faye Kellerman, Tom Clancy’s early work, and in that vein MuseItUp Publishing’s Cyrus Keith, John Grisham, Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, David Weber’s Honor Harrington series (no relation), your Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries (and Acey and Tink say hi to Tugger), Elle Druskin’s Liberty Heights series, Gail Roughton’s books, Mary Janice Davidson’s Undead and… series, and M. S. Spencer. 2. How old were you when you were first published? I guess that depends on what you mean by published. When I was twenty-five I had a story published in my secretarial school’s newsletter. The following year I had articles published in some small newspapers. I had a column in a local weekly newspaper in 1977-78, and a front-page story in another local weekly in 1983. In 1988 an essay I wrote was published in the Columbia College award-winning student anthology, Hair Trigger. I was thirty-seven. My first fiction piece wasn’t published until 2004 when Inara Press bought Rock Bound as a serial, but they folded halfway through the story. I was fifty-three by then. Red Rose picked it up in 2006 and I’m one of the people who asked for and got my rights back from there. 3. What made you become interested in life on the moon? What prompted you to write about it? I’ve been a science…
