Sadie McCallister is a recently divorced owner of a scrap-book store with a gorgeous ex-husband, and fabulous 3 year old daughter and a quirky sense of humor. When her ex-father-in-law dies suddenly, Sadie suspects it was not from natural causes. She not only has to prove he was murdered, but who did it! And that’s not easy when even his own son doesn’t want to believe it.
This is the first in a series of cozy mysteries revolving around Sadie and her crazy friends and family! It’s a fun read that I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed writing it!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always loved to write and have recently become obsessed with cozy mysteries. I’m also an avid scrap-booker, so basing my story in a scrap-book store seemed like a no-brainer!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I’ve based all my characters so far on people in my real life, some rather specifically and others are a conglomerate of many. All of them are fun to create.
”There’s never an easy way to deliver this news, but I’m sorry to tell you that your husband didn’t make it.”
”NOOOO,” Portia cried, wrapping her arms around her waist and bending in half as if to keep herself from flying away.
I was surprised at her reaction given what KP told us in the parking lot, but wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt considering the amount of pain she must be feeling. I myself felt the tenuous hold on my emotions trying to slip away as I desperately tried to hold back my tears and be strong for Mike. He reached for my hand again and I wrapped my other arm around his large shoulders. John and Dave, Portia’s boys, immediately knelt on the floor in front of their mother. Dave, not bothering to hold back his devastation at the news, openly sobbed. Again, I needed to chastise myself for the bad thoughts that immediately entered my mind, as I briefly wondered whether he was more upset at Richie’s loss, or the loss of his meal ticket. Bad Sadie, Bad.
This is my first published novel, though I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I live in Maryland with my husband of 25 years and my amazing 4 year old daughter who is everything wonderful in my world. We also share our home with the entire food chain – 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 hamster, 1 fish. I have a full time “regular” job, but my dream is to someday write full time.
