Love Cozy Mysteries?!! Check these out!

Love Cozy Mysteries? Check out these books by MaryAnn Kempher:

I had the pleasure of interviewing the very talented MaryAnn Kempher here is my interview with her!

What inspired you to write your first book? It’s a little strange. I was watching the news about something shady a major retailer had been caught doing. Without a lot of thought, I turned to my husband and said, “I think I’ll write a book.” Just like that. It wasn’t something that I’d been thinking about doing. The decision was very sudden. My first book, Mocha, Moonlight, and Murder, took the longest to write and was inspired by what I’d seen on the news. However, by the time the book was complete, it was very different from the original concept.
Do you have a specific writing style or one you prefer? I’m a combination pantser, someone who just sits and lets the words flow, and plotter, someone who does an extensive outline before starting the book. I don’t actually do an extensive outline, mostly I write down possible scenes and go from there.
How do you come up with the titles for your books? I put a lot of thought into my titles. I like them to tie in to the books concept. For instance, in my second book, Forever Doomed—the name of the cruise ship where the murders take place is Forever. I hope that once you read the books, why the title was chosen seems obvious.
Are the experiences in your writing based on someone you know, or real life events? The murders, no, but there are two characters (Nene and Gaga Albright) who are loosely based on my mother and aunt.
What books have most influenced your life? Those written by Agatha Christie and Jane Austen. I love the witty dialogue Jane Austen was always able to create—I try to do that as well, and Agatha Christie inspired my love of mystery.
Do you see writing as a career or a hobby? I consider myself a writer, so it’s definitely more than a hobby.
If you had to do it all over again, is there anything you would change in your latest book? Yes, but I’m not saying what.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I’ve always enjoyed writing, or at least I didn’t hate the writing assignments in High School or College. I didn’t begin creative writing until very recently. It has grown on me.
Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? I need to work on my self-discipline. I write from home, so it’s very tempting to walk away from the computer—to the television and/or refrigerator.
Who designs your book covers? Shari Ryan
Who is your favorite character from your writing? Why? Jack Harney. He’s sexy, smart, charming, and a huge flirt—when the opportunity presents itself, but he’s always a gentleman.
Do you have any advice for other writers? If you want to write a book, do your research. It won’t kill you. Go to the library, or the bookstore and get books about the style you want to write: Mystery, Romance etc…. Then buy books about the writing process. For instance, I still refer to a book called, Beginnings, Middles and Endings.

May I ask a few personal questions just for fun?
What is the last book you read? Janet Evanovich’s latest Stephanie Plum novel.
Where is your favorite place to vacation? New York City.
When you aren’t reading or writing, what do you enjoy doing? I enjoy spending time with my family. It doesn’t matter what we’re doing, but we usually go out to lunch and then walk around the mall, or go to Universal Studios.
Are you working on a new novel? Yes. I’m working on my next Jack Harney/Curt Noble mystery. I don’t have a release date yet.
How can we follow you online? I’m most active on Facebook, but I also have a website and am on Pinterest and Twitter.

**Release Day** Wait For Me

Title: Wait For Me
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 27, 2015

I’ve never been one for relationships and commitment. I get what I needed from girls but that’s where it ends. At least that was how it is supposed to be. Until that one night with Nicole changed everything. She is the only girl who has ever made me want more, and I hate it.
I have wanted more of Jason since the one night that we spent together. He has occupied my every dream and invaded my every though. He just needs to let me in and stop fighting it so much. I’m determined to show him exactly what he is missing. I’ll wait for him, but not forever.
What do you do when your whole world is turned upside down? When everything comes crumbling down around you, will you have the will to fight and break down the wall?
Wait For Me was originally Breaking Through The Wall and part of the Guarded Hearts Series. The story has been changed a bit and re-edited to make it a standalone novel.
**Wait For Me is for mature audiences only—strong language, and explicit sexual content are apparent.**

I tell Jason that he will be on his own the rest of the day. I am going to go to the mall and do some shopping.
“Can I come?”
He wants to go shopping with me? “Um…I guess, if you want to.”
We get dressed and head off to the mall. My purpose for coming today isn’t really because I need anything. However, my dad gave me a monthly credit card allowance, so I might as well put it to good use. I decide that maybe I will have some fun playing dress up for Jason today.
I take him into one of my favorite stores and have him sit on the chair outside of the dressing room. The first dress I try on is a short black one. It is strapless and looks pretty modest from the front, but when I turn around, the back of the dress dips into a V that stops just above my butt. When I turn around and look back, his face is priceless. This is definitely going to be fun.
I am trying on about my sixth dress, when the curtain to the changing room is pulled back. Jason walks in and immediately closes it back behind him. He closes the short distance between us and has me backed against the wall of the room. “J, What are you doing in here?!” I whisper at him, completely in shock that he is here. I only have the next dress halfway up my body right now, so my breasts are completely exposed.
“I can’t watch you walk out there in one more of those dresses. I need you now, I can’t wait.”
“Jason, I don’t think—” Before I can finish my sentence, he crashes his mouth against mine, and starts to slip off the remainder of the dress I had been trying on.

She loves spending time with her kids, although she has to hide the computer from them when she is writing! She love being active and being outdoors, especially if it involves any kind of shopping.
