Update on WIP and a New Author for you!

I’m closing in on the final draft of my Christmas card to you, christmas-collection-proof

Cozy Christmas Sweets, a book of short stories.

I probably would have had it published by now, but I got carried away and added a recipe for each of the twelve short stories in the collection.  I’m hoping to make it available in the next week to ten days.


As an early gift to you, my wonderful readers, and to thank you for your patience, I want to introduce you to another entertaining author I think you might like to add to your list of favorites, especially if you like stories set in beautiful, romantic, tropical Hawaii.

Frankie Bow has written a luau-worthy collection of fun reads awaiting your discovery. Click on the book cover below to check them out.

Read a brief description of one of her books, here:

The Case of the Defunct Adjunct

Molly Barda earned her Ph.D. in literature and creative writing from a top-ten doctoral program. After a year of fruitless job-hunting, she finally landed a job at remote Mahina State University (“Where Your Future Begins Tomorrow!”), in rural Hawaii. Teaching resume-writing. In the Business School. Molly longs for working air conditioning. She sits on a yoga ball because there is no budget for office furniture. Her dean, unwilling to lose paying customers, won’t let her report cheating students. But Molly’s determined to bloom where she’s planted, enjoy the tropical beauty of her new home, and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure. Forced to attend the Student Retention Office’s summer retreat, Professor Molly brings her game of buzzword bingo to fend off boredom. When a serial harasser collapses face-first into his haupia cheesecake, the event goes from dull to disastrous. Now Molly has to fight to keep her best friend out of the worst kind of trouble — and herself off the unemployment line



Frankie says ,if you like Dorothy Parker, P.G. Wodehouse, or E.F. Benson’s Mapp and Lucia stories, you’ll enjoy The Case of the Defunct Adjunct, a tale of passion, pilferage, and petty politics in the middle of the Pacific. Regular price 19.95.
