Casting Call for a Corpse

The Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries Book VII

Casting Call for a Corpse, Book 7 of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, was a really fun story to write. I got to combine my knowledge and love of the theater with a charismatic star of stage, screen, and television accused of murder and one of the historic Painted Ladies in San Francisco. All made up, of course, but that never stops the Alvarez family from having a fine time sleuthing their way through the day and night.

5-STARS!

“Another fun excursion into the Alvarez Family investigating murder. The characters we know from the first six books plus more lead us on a merry chase for truth before time runs out! Good investigating, good manners, good grammar, and knowing how to cross your legs at your ankles combine for another great mystery interjected with spots of humor. I loved the book and can’t wait to see what happens next!” – Amazon Reader

I Can Deny Ellie Nothing

I don’t say this entirely because I am a pathetic pet-owner who is owned by her cat. A large part is because I am pandemically housebound, haven’t started my blog tour yet for Casting Call, nor started writing my new Percy Cole book. And God forbid I should do some housework. Well, that’s not quite true. I did a load of laundry the other day. It sits in a basket in the living room waiting to be put away. But back to I can deny Ellie nothing. The other day I ordered her a pet stepladder to get on and…

Casting Call for a Corpse

The 7th book of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, Casting Call for a Corpse is now on preorder at Amazon.com for only $2.99 until midnight, July 31srt. Just click here for your copy. This book was a lot of fun to write. I enjoyed every minute of it. The plot certainly took me away to somewhere other than the pandemic. I got to visit the theater, one of San Francisco’s Painted Ladies, Half Moon Bay, a Christmas tree farm, and even got to mess around with a helicopter (naturally, only in my mind). Below is the blurb: A DETECTIVE AGENCY…

Sheltering in Place – Day I Have No Idea

They say A Day Without Writing is Like a Day Without Sunshine. Actually, maybe ‘they’ don’t. Maybe nobody else says that but me. I know I’ve been paraphrasing something or other for so long, I can’t even remember what the original phrase is. A Day Without Wine is a Day Too Sober? Hmmmm. Maybe not. In any event, today I did no writing. That’s because yesterday I finished the rewrites given me by the content editor, Baird Nuckolls, for Casting Call for a Corpse. The wonderful image at right is not going to be the book cover. But it was…

Sheltering in Place – Day Something or Other

When it comes to my writing, I have a fire in the belly. Or maybe it’s acid reflux. It’s hard to tell sometimes. All I know is I finished writing Casting Call for a Corpse, Book 7 of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries, on Sunday night and now I’m itching to start the next novel.  Of course, Casting Call is not really done yet. A million unfinished bits of business needs to go into making it a “done” work. I can’t help but look forward to a new book, a new set of laughs and problems to give to my…
