I’m so excited about the Key West Literary Seminar

I will be out of town in January. I will be attending the annual Key West Literary Seminars and workshops – in Key West, Florida of course!

It’s all about mystery writing, with lots of starry names, but my workshop is about writing a “killer” first chapter. I am so looking forward to discovering what my instructor James W. Hall has to say!

Let me know if you are also attending one of the seminars or have signed up for one of the workshops, too!

I’ll be clacking on the keyboard again in February, working on my next Nosy Rosy Cozy book! But until then make sure you get a copy of my “Murdering Oscar Wilde”

My book signing at Mountain Made

I had a great time with Celia Miles and Nancy Dillingham at the book signing at Mountain Made. I handed out lots of bookmarks for marketing (Ugh! I hate marketing.)

And as you can see we had a great time, people-watching all the families and the kiddies surrounding the local Santa,

My Book Signing at ‘Accent on Books’

Just a short note to let everyone browse some of the pictures that were taken during my book signing at Accent on Books.

Book Review by Asheville Citizen-Time Columnist Rob Neufeld

A “Southern-fired Romp”

sheville Citizen Time Review on Murdering Oscar WildeA “Southern-fried Romp” writes Rob Neufeld, a Columnist who writes a weekly book feature in the Sunday Edition of the Asheville Citizen-Times…

“The Asheville author’s “southern-fried romp” mixes village doings with a murder mystery and theatrical fun to entertain fans. A production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” is under threat of being killed as had been the leading man’s father.

One of the Wilde lines quoted is ‘You should leave literary criticism to people who haven’t at a university. They do it so well in the daily papers.’

Well, there are very few critics left in the papers, degreed or not, but the show must go on, as does the Pitchkettle Players’ show, Let’s support our local writers and playmakers.

Cash signs her novel at Mountain Made Gallery in the Grove Arcade Asheville, 1-3PM, Dec 14.”




A Wonderful Cozy Mystery Book Signing!

I was completely caught up!

Book Launch Party at
Curiosity Shop Bookstore
Murphy NC – My Hometown

Last Wednesday, my book launch in my hometown of Murphy was a huge success!

The staff at the Curiosity Shop outdid themselves and the evening was made even more special due to the talented work of the actors from LickLog Players.

This wonderful acting company is the inspiration for the Pitchkettle Players in my ‘Murdering Oscar Wilde’ cozy mystery.

I just would like again to give a HUGE thank you to the folks at the Curiosity Shop Bookstore and the wonderful members of the Licklog Players.

As you can see by the photos we all had a great evening!

Murdering Oscar Wilde Homecoming Book Party!


Murphy NC – my hometown & the inspiration for my ‘Murdering the Playwright’ books

Thomas Wolfe was wrong! You can go back home again!  I’m so excited.

My (real) “Murdering Oscar Wilde” book launch party will be this Wednesday Nov. 20 at 5:30 -7:30 at the Curiosity Shop Bookstore in Murphy NC, my home town.

This wonderful mountain community was the inspiration for the book and is home of the real real ShoeBooties’ restaurant.

My launch party will have live music from local guitarist Hondo as well as actors from the Licklog Players (who bear a striking resemblance to the Pitchkettle Players in the book) be on hand in full costume to act out skits from Oscar Wilde’s play, ‘The Importance of Being Earnest” and will also do readings from my book!

Of course I will have plenty of autographed books available, but if you can’t drop by then you can always get a signed copy from me here: Get “Murdering Oscar Wilde”

I invite you to come by and join the fun! > Curisity Shop Bookstore, 46 Valley River Ave. Murphy NC

Fun at My First ‘MOW’ Book Reading

I had my first book reading of “Murdering Oscar Wilde” at Accent on Books last Saturday.  The three of us, R.F. Wilson (Killer Weed), along with Michael F Havelin (The Ben Bones series) and myself from the WNC Mysterians writing group,  read our work in front a small but lively audience.

As you can see we had a grand time.  Naturally I felt that my book reading (along with some Oscar Wilde’s more funny quotes) were a hit with the audience! I really

I will return Accent on Nov 23th for my Asheville book launch.

I hope to see you there > Directions to Accent on Books
