I am a Daughter, Mother, Wife and Entrepreneur and on a good day, an Author. I live near London in England. Now in my mid-forties, I have collected up snippets along the way, some good, some bad and these I try to tap into for inspiration. I also have a lively imagination, so I am never alone. I love with writing that you have the power to go in any direction and twist and turn it whenever you please, and sprinkle it with delicious spice whenever you want, if only real life was that easy.

Writing is something that I've wanted to do for a lot of years now but it seemed life got in the way until I woke up one day after having a flood in my home and thought, if I have no TV and no sofa to sit on at the end of the day, I should make the time count and so sat down at my desk which was fortunately upstairs and with a glass of red in one hand started the first draft of Bernie Taylor. I had always enjoyed Jackie Collins books myself or the central character of Bridget Jones, so I decided to have one main character. A sexy strong female called Bernie Taylor and write a story that I would enjoy to read, and so she was born!

DEATH BY HIGH HEELS by Violet Ingram

DeathbyHighHeels_SMSpending time with a dead guy, being interrogated by the cops and getting stitched up by a cute ER doc wasn’t exactly the evening plans private investigator Kimberly Murphy envisioned. Especially the getting caught standing over a dead body, again, part. Only this time it wasn’t her fault. Just once she’d like it if homicide detective Grant Tompkins didn’t assume she was guilty.

To clear her slightly tarnished name, Kim goes after the clever killer while avoiding a certain hot homicide detective determined to put her in handcuffs – and not the pink, fuzzy kind – not that she’d mind. Too bad Kim’s efforts lead to dead ends and even more dead bodies. Kim will need all her skills and a bit of luck to outwit a killer who’d like to put an end to Kim’s meddling permanently.

Author Bio:
I began writing my first novel when I was thirteen, and I have dreamed of my life as a writer ever since. I dreamt of a house on a bluff overlooking the ocean with large windows and an airy solarium with comfy leather sofas on which I would lounge and write. For breaks, I would walk my dogs and small child to the nearby beach.
At some point, I decided to take a more pragmatic approach to life and began teaching high school English. These days, I do live on a bluff, but I overlook the cornfields in the rural Midwest. And I do go for walks with my child, but I have developed an allergy to dogs that typically leave me battling an asthma attack. And for 40% of the year, it’s too cold in the Midwest for leather couches to be comfortable and for solariums to thrive.
Nevertheless, after thirteen years, I am now able to do what I’ve always loved by taking advantage of the self-publishing revolution. And I still have dreams. Currently, for example, I dream of growing a lavish vegetable garden on our bluff. Unfortunately, dreaming about it doesn’t make my thumb any greener. In the meantime, I take great satisfaction in the fact that the survival of my protagonists is dependent only on my imagination rather than my ability to avoid over-watering them.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Initially, the idea for The Demimonde Trilogy was only going to be one book. But as I continued researching, I realized how interesting the women of Montana were in 1910. I wanted to tell three different stories to relate three different roles of women involved in the red light district.

A poem that I wrote at the time. Also, when I was looking for something to read I found myself increasingly dissatisfied with my choices. So I kind of bet myself and a friend that I could write something just as good as anything else out there. I’ve always wanted to write but the desire to do so publicly wasn’t something that I was something that I was really prompted to do until a few years ago.

After finishing a second western, Shadow of the Rope, she began to explore a new direction and completed three contemporary mysteries involving private investigator Sid Langdon, a self-doubting magnet for offbeat clients and hapless scenarios, the latest being The Mystery of the Nourdon Blue. Amanda enjoys learning from the books she reads, a characteristic reflected in the research she includes in her own works.

I loved the idea of a blind violinist who was a child prodigy. He’s young and sexy and his handicap has affected how he lives his life and who he lets into his close inner circle. But when his girlfriend is murdered, and there is a link to him and a private sex club in Chicago, he becomes a suspect and all his secrets (and his hidden desires) are at risk of being discovered.
