Velda Brothertonabout this book: In this, the second of A Twist of Poe mysteries, reporter Jesse West teams up with sexy Cherokee lawman Dallas Starr on two cases. While Dal recovers from an injury they follow leads to hunt down a stash of stolen diamonds lost when they were hidden and never recovered. Jesse and Dal continue their wild and crazy love affair between kidnappings and the discovery of two bodies near the old abandoned fusion plant. It's a creepy place to get locked up in, but Jesse manages to do just that. This follows the first of the series, The Purloined Skull. Coming in May 2016, The Pit and The Penance.
This series was conceived while I worked for nine years on a rural weekly newspaper. Many of the characters and situations are based on real events during that time. I've set the story in fictional Grace county in Arkansas but readers will see many places that really exist.
Writing these books is the most fun I've ever had. I feel like I'm once again working at that newspaper where I had such a wonderful time. The experiences are with me still, and it's hard to believe they paid me for what I did, it was so much fun.
I think readers can learn a lot about the Ozarks and the people who live there by reading these books.
