Jackie Fullerton is the author of Ring Around the Rosy, Revenge Served Cold and Piercing the Veil.
I am constantly looking for unique situations where a murder can take place. If I’m in a hotel, I look down the dark hallways and picture a murder. When I do get a perfect plot, it can germinate for months as I refine it in my mind. The plot for my fourth book came to me over two years ago and I have just worked out all the nuances to my satisfaction. Of course, all that changes once you put pen to paper.
Mary Higgins Clark. Enough said.
The dialogue. I hate writing dialogue.
I started attending various author conferences held around the country and quickly realized how open and sharing other authors were. It made no difference if they were widely published or just had their first book put in print, they were all willing to sit around and offer help and advice to new authors. It was at one of these conferences I realized I had become an “author.”
Because I think it is a good read.
Law student and amateur sleuth Anne Marshall and her attorney fiance Jason Perry leave their Midwestern town for a Florida vacation at the home of Jason’s parents. When they land in Florida, they find that Jason’s father has discovered the murdered body of his wife’s best friend, Maude. The only clue left behind is a note pinned to her that is the second verse of the nursery rhyme Ring Around the Rosy.
Unable to pass up the opportunity to investigate a juicy murder, Anne soon discovers that Maude’s brother was killed in a hit-and run accident several months before. The first verse of Ring Around the Rosy was pinned to his chest. Anne thinks the perp is a serial killer who will strike again.
When Maude’s son, Ron, is brutally attacked and left for dead, Anne knows his work is just beginning. Racing against the clock, Anne soon finds herself in a serial killer’s crosshairs while battling an untimely attraction to homicide detective Don Reynolds.
Ring Around the Rosy takes you on an adventure from present to past and back again as Anne and her crime-solving partners shift in to high gear to stop a killer before he strikes again!
