Today I have the pleasure of introducing you to two mystery writers: John Peters and Carol Newsome.
John works full-time as a daily newspaper editor.His work has appeared in numerous publications, including the Stoker-nominated anthology series The Horror Library (volumes 1 and 3); Night Terrors 2; the Australian magazine Midnight Echo; the British publication Spinetinglers; and the Canadian magazine Dark Recesses.
Carol started out as a painter, never expecting to find a new avenue of creativity. I can definitely relate. She started writing after an accident that left her with ‘horizontal’ time. She couldn’t write a story without dogs, so her debut novel is called “A Shot in the Bark” and currently ranked in the top 25 for mystery series.
Claiming Moon by John Peters
People are dying in Southwest Virginia, their bodies ripped open, each missing a vital organ. The only clue? Year-old, dead human tissue left at each crime scene. Det. Frank Taliaferro is on the case, but he has to deal with a pesky reporter from the local newspaper – a woman who begins to get under his skin in more than one way. Murder, an ancient evil, and … romance? CLAIMING MOON.
A Shot in the Bark: A Dog Park Mystery (Lia Anderson Dog Park Mysteries) by C.A. Newsome
Would you recognize a serial killer if you met one? Talked to one every day? Artist Lia Anderson doesn’t, and neither does anyone else who frequents the Mount Airy Dog Park. But a violent death brings Detective Peter Dourson into the close-knit group, and he is convinced someone is not who they seem. As the investigation uncovers secrets, Lia struggles to cope with warring emotions and a killer watches.
