WHO IS MISSY JENKINS?


Death in 3/4 Time

The second book in the Missy Jenkins musical mystery series, "Death in 3/4 Time," takes place in December of 1979. The following excerpt is from Chapter One:
     The sparkle of ice on the bedroom window softened the deep blue of the winter night. She glanced at the clock on the nightstand. Two a.m. With her husband on a business trip and her teenagers spending the night with friends, this was her opportunity to indulge her secret passion for ballroom dance.
     Taking a deep breath, she inhaled the cool, clean pine scent of the Christmas garland looped around the upstairs bannister.

IT'S PUBLISHED!

The first novel in the Missy Jenkins mystery series, TERROR IN DOUBLE TIME, is finally published on Amazon, Kindle and in print version. Look it up by title at either the Amazon or Kindle sites to buy it, or for a signed book, email me atmissymysteries@hotmail.comand I'll send an order form.
I'm especially excited about the cover photo because it's a snapshot I took in 1978 before the Three Mile Island accident. I was driving up the same stretch of road that I describe in Chapter One of the book, when I thought, "What an awesome view" and stopped the car to take that picture.

KILLING IN QUARTER TIME

Book Three of the Missy Jenkins series, KILLING IN QUARTER TIME, is underway as a NaNoWriMo project. What's that, you say? NaNoWriMo stands for the National November Writing Month when people across the globe get together online to try to write their novels (the goal is 50,000 words) in one month. It's daunting, I know, and it means I have to write close to 2,000 words every day. I'm not that disciplined. Some days I write more, but most days I don't. Some days I don't get a chance to write at all. This challenge will force me to follow a schedule (eeek!!) and not play so many games on the computer (boo!!) and get my novel done sooner than I would have before (yay!!) Wish me luck, and I'll talk to you again on December 1 (or 2nd, or 3rd, whenever I recuperate).

MURDER IN MUSICAL MODE

 
Hi. I'm Missy Jenkins, and I'd like to introduce you to my neighborhood, Twin Pines, and my family and friends. I'm a piano teacher, but I like to solve mysteries. Suzanne Flaig writes about me in her musical mystery series. MURDER IN MUSICAL MODE is a short story; some of my other adventures are novels. Here's the beginning of MURDER IN MUSICAL MODE, which will soon be available for sale in an anthology of Suzanne's short stories titled THRILLED TO DEATH.
