Author Picture 300dpi copyI’m a retired high school English teacher. A devourer of books growing up, my profession introduced me to writings and authors from times long past.

Through my studies and teaching, I fell in love with the Ancient and Medieval Worlds.

Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds.

Top Ten List:

  1. Things I like to do when not writing:

    I enjoy traveling—I will travel anywhere, any time; reading; spending time with my family; and working in the yard. I’m definitely not a housekeeper.

  2. How I relax:

    Sitting on the beach in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico!

  3. My favorite color:

    Blue’s always been my favorite color. It’s the color of my eyes, of the sky, and of the ocean.

  4. My favorite drink:

    Just can’t pass up a good margarita!

  5. My favorite snack:

    I devour nachos and Auntie Anne’s pretzels!

  6. My favorite movies:

    Star Wars, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, and The Mummy. I’ve watched each of these so many times that I’ve lost track, and my husband shakes his head when he sees one on and says, “Really?” I just smile.

  7. I am a night owl:

    I don’t usually go to sleep until midnight, and now that I’m retired, I’m comfortable not seeing the sun come up in the morning:)

  8. My favorite food:

    That would be a smothered shredded beef burrito followed by coconut ice cream.

  9. My favorite concerts:

    Elton John, Sting, Paul McCartney, and Mumford & Sons.

  10. If I could live anyway, it would be in Colorado.

    We have the best weather—All four seasons. I live next to the foothills, and a drive up in the Rockies is a cure for any ailment. I can see the world famous Red Rock Amphitheater from my couch, and if the wind is just right, we can hear the concerts. My immediate family is all here, except for one sister who lives in Texas, poor soul. In addition to being a retired teacher, I’m also a retired airline employee. So, when I need a change, it’s so easy just to hop a plane and go to the beach.

Day 4:
The Golden Hour: A Nora Tierney English Mystery by Marni Graff

summer 17

 

coverAmerican writer Nora Tierney is house hunting in Oxford to solidify her little family that includes her almost-year old son, Sean, and her partner, Det. Insp. Declan Barnes. But why does she feel like she’s being followed?

When tracking devices confirm Nora has a stalker, it sets off a chain of events that connect to Declan’s murder investigation of a young Oxford art restorer, and will bring bioterrorism and a psychopath into their lives, while Sean’s hangs in the balance. The fourth Nora Tierney English mystery is the most tension-filled yet, a meditation on what is family and home, combined with art theft and an international conspiracy.

This book will be available soon. Make sure you read the first three books in the series first!

Snippet:

(From Chapter 1:)

In the 10 weeks he’d been following her, it became obvious that Nora Tierney was a competent mother who loved and cared for her child. It seemed they had a fairy-tale life, bouncing back and forth between the storied city and the nature-filled village.

From the overheard talks with Barnes, her friends, and phone conversations, plus the house viewings, he learned she planned to move back to Oxford. When would that happen? How long would she stay in Bowness this time?

How long could he keep following her?

As long as it took.
