Southern Sewing Circle Mystery Series, Book 8
Berkley Prime Crime
Available in paperback and ebook
Welcome, I’m glad you’re here!
In 2008, my agent suggested I try my hand at writing a book about a group of southern women in a sewing circle. I almost declined because I’m not exactly a sewing expert. But that little voice inside me that has wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl, told me to give it a shot.
A few weeks later, during a crazy writing weekend, I had the first six chapters of SEW DEADLY and an amazing cast of characters I couldn’t help but love. Three days later, I had a contract.
Since that time, eight books in my Southern Sewing Circle series have found their way onto store shelves and into the hands of the best fans ever. Along the way, the ladies of Sweet Briar have invited us into their homes and their hearts–showing us their best and not-so-best sides like true friends do. They’ve made me (and hopefully you) laugh, shake my head, swipe at a few tears, and eagerly await their next adventure.
If you sew, you’ll enjoy this crew. If you don’t, you’ll enjoy this crew. Why? Because the act of sewing is truly just a backdrop to these books–a reason these particular women come together (like a book club or a card group might do for others).
So that’s the story behind the series. While you’re here, take a moment to check things out. My Books page shows all the books in the series (with more on the way all the time). And if you click on the cover of each book, it will take you to its chapter one excerpt as well as some really nice things reviewers have said about that particular title.
