Each of the collection’s nineteen short stories is a sinister treat. Like a hidden candy stash, I found myself wanting to scarf these tales down — just one more! — when I probably should have washed the dishes or answered emails. Oh, sweet twisted deliciousness!
Our first signing at Books at Park Place went well. Our second signing will be at The Island Bookshop in Venice, Florida from 6 - 7:30 PM.
Paradise is Deadly is available in both print and Kindle format!
Following in the footsteps of Florida authors like Carl Hiaasen, Dave Barry, and Randy Wayne White, Paradise is Deadly offers a variety of short stories sure to please everyone. From hosting hurricane parties that turn deadly to dodging frozen iguanas falling out of palm trees, writers seem to find that Florida is weirdly wonderful when it comes to murder and mayhem. These nineteen twisty tales cast a wide net from cozy mysteries to thrillers, and from historical fiction to paranormal sleuths.
In her introduction to the anthology, Forensic Crime Scene Analyst and New York Times Best Selling Author, Lisa Black wrote, “In Florida, our murders are uniformly un-uniform, Perhaps we add the variety to our crime that we lack in weather and feet-above-sea-level.”
Twenty authors wrote nineteen compelling stories. Authors anonymously withstood the independent judging process by best-selling, award winning authors, Lisa Black, Alan Orloff, Colette Bancroft, and Susan Thibadeau. Then, the editing process by editors, Wendy Dingwall, Martha Reed, and Barbara Ryan. For a few authors it was their first time being published, and an exciting way to kick off their creative writing career. You’ll surely recognize several of your favorite local award-winning authors who also contributed to the anthology, such as Teresa Michael who writes the Mariposa Café Mysteries, and Publishers Weekly Best-Selling Author of numerous series Jenna Kernan.
