I’m thrilled today to introduce my very good friend Mystery Author Eunice Loecher (pronounced Low-sher). She lives in my area and is one of my faithful writing partners. (I think the photo above gives you some idea of why I like Eunice.)
A few weeks ago, she launched her first cozy mystery series: THE ARBOR VALE series, set in the northwoods where we both live. Here is my interview with Eunice:
Share one fun or interesting fact about your life or books.
There are so many to chose from. At age seven I got my head caught in a turnstile in the grocery store. It still hurts. I leave it to your imagination as to how that happened. Then there was the day I walked on water when it rained down poisonous snakes from the tree I was fishing under. Or when I was late for work because a tarantula was in front of me on the sidewalk.
Why do you write?
Because I enjoy putting words on paper and expressing the stories and ideas running around inside my head. I’m really enjoying the stories my current characters, Zita and Zinnia, have to share as they get embroiled in all sorts of murder and mayhem.
So begins Zita’s first murder investigation with her lifelong sidekick Zinnia Blossom Winwood and the distraction of the good-looking Max Knight, successful condo builder. Attacked by a clown, run off the road, and warned off by the police, Zita will not let Fred’s murderer get off scot free. But another mystery, the facts surrounding Zita’s parentage and birth also may come to light.
A Widow’s Might is the first of the (Arbor Vale Mystery) Series. Followed by Woman at the Well, (Book Two-now also available), written and coming soon, The Subtle Serpent, (Book Three), The Root of All Evil, (Book Four), and Sin Lieth at the Door, (Book Five).
Eunice Loecher enjoys living in a small Wisconsin northwoods town, south of Lake Superior. This setting inspired her Arbor Vale mystery series, featuring the two “Z’s” Zita Stillman, amateur sleuth, and her sidekick the flamboyant Zinnia Blossom Winwood.
Writing for over twenty years, Eunice was a finalist in the prestigious Wisconsin Regional Writers Award, The Jade Ring 2003. Eunice also had stories included in three editions of the “God Allows U-Turns” series, the Christian version of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Then Eunice switched from non-fiction to fiction and began by writing two romantic suspense novels. She now writes cozy mystery as her true calling.
Eunice is offering to give away several copies of her EBOOK The Widow’s Might. Please leave a comment to enter the drawing. Here’s the
