What’s New

Secret Sleuth News

Sheila Mackey’s goal of a quiet life in Haines Tavern, Kentucky, is getting more complicated all the time. First, her adopted rescue collie finds a dead body in DEATH ON TORRID AVENUE. The next twist is the murder of a yoga instructor in DEATH ON BEGUILING WAY. The newest release is Book 4, DEATH ON COVERT CIRCLE, released in January — well ahead of its original June due date. Look for the print edition (all Secret Sleuth books will have paperback editions) this spring.

Hot Rolling Into Print

The latest Caught Dead in Wyoming  mystery, HOT ROLL, is hot off the presses in paperback. The horrible news that Jennifer’s dear friend has died starts TV reporter Elizabeth Danniher, with friends Mike, Tom and Diana plus the rest of the Caught Dead crew, on an investigation that moves faster — and closer to them — than any of them could ever expect. The print edition is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, while the digital version is on sale at all the major retailers.   

Meet Patricia

Patricia McLinn is the USA Today bestselling author of mystery, romance, women’s fiction known for strong characters, touches of humor, connected stories, and settings that make you want to move in. She had 27 books in 25 years in traditional publishing. Having secured the rights back to a number of her earlier books, she began indie publishing in early 2010. That made her officially a hybrid author, since she also still had books under traditional contracts. In mid-2015 she left the final traditional publisher and has been happily 100% independent since.

Patricia is also the host of Authors Love Readers, a series of conversations between authors about how and why they create stories. The podcast covers lots of genres and all kinds of books, so if you love reading, visit often for a new episode.
