Trained to Serve Cover

Amy Shojai, one of the Fearless Bloggers, is an pet expert, particularly cats and dogs. She’s written over thirty books about pet behavior, as well as three thrillers.

So when her friend Toby Neal asked her to contribute to her Lei Crime series on Kindleworld, Shojai jumped at the chance. And which character did she choose? The Rottweiler, of course! 

Scribe of Siena cover

My lates article in The Big Thrill is about Melodie Winawer's debut novel, The Scribe of Siena.

Alexa Williams is a social activist and sleuth. She stars in Sherry Knowlton's "Dead of" series: Dead of Autumn, Dead of Summer, and now, Dead of Spring. Each book combines a major social issue, multiple murders, multiple lovers (or at least love interests) and last but not least, exotic travel.

 

Lee Child has Jack Reacher. Michael Connelly has Harry Bosch. Walter Mosley has Easy Rawlins. Patricia Cornwell has Kay Scarpetta.

And Michael Niemann has Valentin Vermuelen.
