Originally released in 2007 as a hardcover, and in 2008 in audiobook, The Prairie Grass Murders is now available in paperback from Harlequin Worldwide Mystery. Books may be ordered through eHarlequin's online store.
I'd be really happy if you would pass that link around to your friends and family. The Prairie Grass Murders is set mostly in central Illinois in the farm country where I grew up, but wraps up in South Florida, which is where my main characters now live. Sylvia Thorn, age 59, is a Palm Beach County circuit court judge. Her older brother, Willie Grisseljon, is a Vietnam veteran. When Willie finds a body on his Illinois vacation, he and a deputy sheriff don't see eye to eye on Willie's right to wander the countryside. It's up to Sylvia to sort out the resulting mess.
New Book Giveaway Coming Soon
I found a box just the right size. Next step is to select the books so there's a nice mix of mysteries and thrillers. I'm working on that.

The problem with winter sports is that - follow me closely here - they generally take place in winter.
