Jolly is what we want to be during December and FBI Special Agent Dawna Shepherd is ready to help us get there.
From now through December 24th, her short mystery set during the holiday season is bargain-priced at less than a dollar. For only ninety-nine cents, you get “Boot Scoot: A Dawna Shepherd Short Story.”
Dawna Shepherd loves her family, working as an FBI Special Agent, and playing basketball.
She’s celebrating Christmas in her home town when a bounty hunter pursues her college student brother home from Lubbock.
Certain that Fugitive Team Leader Tommy O’Brien is chasing the wrong quarry, Dawna stops him cold at the Shepherd front door.
But she knows O’Brien won’t give up. And all her crime-fighter instincts are screaming that the bounty hunter is going to ruin this holiday for someone she loves.
Can law-abiding Dawna find a way to save Christmas?
“Boot Scoot” was a finalist for the 2003 Macavity Award for best mystery short story.

Great because the cover above, unlike the old one featuring Kesey’s colorful school bus, doesn’t suggest that readers will time-travel back to the sixties.
Murder, Ken Kesey, and Me happens in the recent past and imagines a movie-making venture in Oregon, depicting the life of the state’s most famous author.
I like that the new cover focuses both on the film and the humor in this modern mystery.
As the story begins, an indie company is coming to Oregon to make Acid Test: The Life of Ken Kesey. Before they arrive, hardworking Eugene location scout Estrella “Star” Stevens stumbles over a dead body and into the crushing embrace of the FBI.
Star is forced to join the FBI’s risky investigation of gangland boss and titty bar owner Oscar Quarry. Narrowly escaping death, she’s suddenly living her own movie.
Will she be a star? Or the next corpse? And which homicidal Oregonian is racking up the body count?
For answers to those questions plus a a virtual tour of my hometown, Eugene, Oregon, click on the cover above or follow this universal link to an online retailer and buy the ebook Murder, Ken Kesey, and Me.
