B. L. Blairabout this book: Dead in a Dumpster in the first book in the Leah Norwood Mysteries. The main character, Leah, finds the body of Isabel Meeks in the dumpster behind her store. Leah and Isabel did not get along, and Leah finds herself in a unique situation - she is a suspect in a murder investigation.
Writing Dead in a Dumpster was a lot of fun. It took me about six months, and I found that it flowed fairly quickly. One of the things that did surprise me was that I originally had another character as the murderer, but once I started writing the story that changed. I also got a couple of ideas for other stories in this series as I was writing this one.
The hardest part of writing this book was making the murder realistic. I had to do research on guns, drugs, and police procedures and police departments. I am not sure I got everything perfect, but I hope it is close!
I have always enjoyed reading mystery/romance novels so I decided to write one. I hope readers will relate to Leah and enjoy reading about her efforts to solve the mystery of Isabel's death.
