The inspiration for this new series came from looking up into the night sky and wondering what role we might play in reaching out to break the seemingly eternal silence. It was also inspired by the wave of technology that is currently guiding us into realms that we may not be prepared for, and what represents the most important aspects of the human soul that must be carried forward and protected in the future.
In a world that seems to be racing towards uncertainty, I wanted to explore the unique tragedy that is human life using tools such as religion, scientific research, spirituality and social structures, and bring to life the importance of questioning our purpose here on Earth. Of course, I also wanted to create a thrilling and action packed mystery to keep book lovers turning the pages at night!

Will he survive long enough to capture what he secretly most: the reluctant affections of a beautiful woman?

Kim Carter has given us the second in her Clara and Iris Mystery series, Murder Among the Tombstones. Part cozy, part police procedural, Clara Samples and Iris Hadley are septuagenarians who decide to begin their second careers, by opening a private investigation agency in one of the rougher areas of Atlanta. Sounds like a perfect fit, except Iris doesn’t like to drive in traffic or at night, and Clara doesn’t have a lot of confidence. And did I mention a little thing called technology? … Ms. Carter surrounds her stories with very colorful characters. She lives in Atlanta, so she gives us a very realistic picture of the city and its citizens. look forward to reading more of the series and watching the faceoff between two very different generations. A fun series but with an opportunity to hold a mirror up to ourselves.

I've been writing mysteries since 1999 when I became ill and housebound for a couple of years.

The characters introduced in my new mystery series 'A Clara and Iris Mystery' with book one 'Sweet Dreams Baby Belle' where Clara and Iris are introduced and now fully developed in book two of 'Murder Among The Tombstones' where both very good friends of my mother and knew they had to be a part of this series!
I will be writing a book from here in this series that takes place in each State of the US, which begins, of course, in both of book one and two in and around historical sites of Atlanta, GA. My third has released of this series, as the mystery takes place in Seattle, WA.
I am currently writing and finishing the next one, book four takes place in New Orleans titled; "Murder On The Bayou." So readers watch for it soon!
