AIt’s the summer of 1971 and Liz looks after her four sisters while waiting on the birth of the sixth Murphy child, a boy. And yet something is not right.
Adults tensely whisper in small groups, heads shaking.
Rose is more annoying than usual, always flashing her camera and writing in her notepad.
The truth is worse than anyone could imagine; an entire family slaughtered in their home nearby. The small rural town is reeling in the aftermath.
For Liz, the murders complicate her already tiring life. Keeping Rose in line already feels like a full-time job, and if her sister gets it in her head that she can solve a murder. …
Surely the murderer must be someone passing through, a random horror. It begs the question, where do murderers live?
This mystery threads itself through my second novel, A Snake in the Raspberry Patch, a recent Stonehouse Publishing release. It’s available for purchase through Stonehouse Publishing, McNally Robinson, Coles/Indigo, Amazon and in e-book format.
My first book, The Wheaton, published in 2019, is available for purchase through Stonehouse Publishing. It follows John, a retired letter carrier as he gets a job at a seniors’ residence. It combines much humour, a little bit of mystery, and a big dose of learning not to judge people by their age.
I have spent my entire life on the prairies, raising my kids in Saskatoon, and still reside here as an empty nester along with my husband and a border collie named Mick.
Launches scheduled for A Snake in the Raspberry Patch:
Edmonton — April 30 at the Bonnie Doon Community League at 7 p.m.
Calgary — May 2 at the Alexandra Writing Centre at 7 p.m.
