Dial M for Murder
Detective Brooke Daniel’s first day in the Homicide Department began with the grueling discovery of unidentifiable human remains and continued with the Mayor’s daughter being slain by a sadistic killer. The killer begins to taunt Brooke, as if he knows her personally, and the killings continue. The detectives soon dub him “the Ripper” because of his copycat behavior of the infamous Jack the Ripper, and he doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.
Meanwhile, while hunting the Ripper, more unidentifiable remains are found and the homicide team soon finds itself hunting another kind of killer—an animal kind.
When “the Ripper” sets his sights on Brooke herself, who—or what—will save her?
Dial M for Murder
When she was a little girl, Elena Davidson had to witness something no child should ever have to. On Christmas morning, she witnessed the murder of her parents from her hiding spot in their closet. The killer wore a ski mask, but he was eventually caught, and Elena would never forget the face of the man convicted—Jeff McCormick—because of the hideous scar running down his cheek and the bright orange hair that helped convict him. She would also never forget the coldness in his eyes, as he proclaimed his innocence on the witness stand, while being sentenced to sixty years imprisonment.
It’s now twenty years later, and she’s seen “the tall man” again—right before her house is broken into and a trinket of her mother’s, missing since the day of her murder, is left behind—and right after similar grisly murders. This all brings about the questions—why is Jeff McCormick out of prison, and is he after her? Or was he telling the truth all along—and he really is innocent—and the real killer is after her? Either way, someone is breaking into homes and murdering couples in the Greenville, MS area.
With the help of Detective Brooke Daniels, and hunk FBI Special Agent Shane Braun, maybe Elena’s haunting past can finally be closed—before it kills her.
Dial M for Murder
Gavin Delray has a dark side, and many unfortunate and unsuspecting women are about to witness it. A scorned lover, he plans to use internet dating to search for his true love, all the while punishing those who won’t measure up to the god of love, Cupid’s, standards.
Detective Brooke Daniels has her hands full with the murders of young women piling up. Working with her gorgeous new partner, Dex Stone, and love interest FBI agent, Shane Braun—whom she has been keeping at arm’s length—she risks her life in a dangerous undercover operation on the dating scene as she tries to find the connection that will lead her to the killer and just maybe even to her own heart’s desire.
Another kind of killer, never flushed out, lurks in the woods once again as well. While trying to find their newest serial killer, the Homicide Team has to once again investigate what kind of being could be leaving bodies mangled in the area, including one of their own.
Interview With the Author:
What initially got you interested in writing? I started writing poetry when I was 14 as an emotional outlet. I was dealing with serious injuries from a car wreck and then, one year later, my brother’s death.
How did you decide to make the move into being a published author? I wrote a sexy short story for a boyfriend in 2009. Occasionally, I pulled it out and looked at it, and then one day I decided it was good enough to turn into a novel. That short story is chapter one of my first book, Bound Through Blood.
What do you want readers to take away from reading your works? I don’t have any messages. I just want my audience to be entertained.
What do you find most rewarding about writing? Having readers ask me when I’ll be finished with the next book (or chapter if they are a beta reader). I love the motivation it gives me.
What do you find most challenging about writing? Keeping myself inspired and trying to make the book unique from others.
What advice would you give to people want to enter the field? Write every day and don’t let yourself get discouraged. Write it first and edit/change it later.
