For Florida diner owner Gia Morelli, there’s no such thing as too much breakfast—unless it kills you . . .

When Gia Morelli’s marriage falls apart, she knows it’s time to get out of New York. Her husband was a scam artist who swindled half the millionaires in town, and she doesn’t want to be there when they decide to take revenge. On the spur of the moment, she follows her best friend to a small town in Central Florida, where she braves snakes, bears, and giant spiders to open a cheery little diner called the All-Day Breakfast Café. Owning a restaurant has been her lifelong dream, but it turns into a nightmare the morning she opens her dumpster and finds her ex-husband crammed inside. As the suspect du jour, Gia will have to scramble fast to prove her innocence before a killer orders another cup of murder . . .

Interview with the Author

What initially got you interested in writing? I’ve always loved to read—mysteries, suspense, thrillers, anything that kept me turning the pages. When my youngest son was born and didn’t sleep through the night, I decided to give writing a try, and I loved it, especially in the middle of the night when the house is semi-quiet.

What genres do you write in? Mostly cozy mysteries, though I’ve tried romance and YA fantasy as well.

What drew you to writing these specific genres? I originally wrote sweet romance, but romance isn’t really my thing, so my agent suggested I try writing cozies, and it was a perfect fit for me.

How did you break into the field?  When I finished writing my first cozy mystery, Death at First Sight, I sent it to my agent. I was in Disney World with my husband and kids when she called to tell me Berkley was interested. That was definitely one of the best vacations ever!

What do you want readers to take away from reading your works?  Mostly, I want people to come away feeling happy, as if they’ve just visited with old friends. I hope they enjoy the mystery and work to solve it along with the sleuth, but I really want them to get invested in the characters, to come to love them as much as I do.

What do you find most rewarding about writing?  Sharing my stories with people who enjoy them.

What do you find most challenging about writing? Discipline! I am a master procrastinator, and finding the discipline to sit down and write every day is challenging for me.

What advice would you give to people wanting to enter the field? Write your book. That’s the most important piece of advice I was ever given. Just sit down and write your book. There’s plenty of time to worry about everything else later, but you have to have a finished novel first.

What type of books do you enjoy reading? I enjoy a wide variety of genres; anything paranormal, fantasy, suspense, thrillers. And, of course, I love mysteries, especially cozies.

Is there anything else besides writing you think people would find interesting about you? My other love, besides reading, was dancing. I was a dance teacher for more than twenty years. I also choreographed and directed high school musicals for several years.

What are the best ways to connect with you, or find out more about your work?

I love hanging out on social media and can often be found at facebook parties. I enjoy connecting with readers, so feel free to send me a friend request or follow.

Lena Gregory lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.

When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.
