Nancy Lynn Jarvis reveals The Corpse's Secret Life, a new PIP Inc. Mystery

Image
  Welcome to fellow Sister in Crime, Nancy Lynn Jarvis! Nancy Lynn Jarvis left the real estate profession after she started having so much fun writing the Regan McHenry Real Estate Mysteries series that she let her license lapse. But after seven books, she was ready for a new adventure and is currently working on the fourth book in her PIP Inc. series which features not-quite-licensed private investigator, downsized law librarian Pat Pirard. She has also edited crowd pleasers Cozy Food: 128 Cozy Mystery Writers Share Their Favorite Recipes and Santa Cruz Weird. The last year-and-half have been difficult, not only because of Covid 19, but because Nancy spent eight-and-a-half months out of her damaged home following the CZU Fire. She’s happy to be home again, writing, redecorating, and enjoying being a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and Santa Cruz Women of Mystery.   My website is  www.nancylynnjarvis.com Facebook is  https://www.facebook.com/nancylynnjarvi

I've been writing since the mid-1970s and back in those days, it was virtually impossible to make a living in Canada as a writer unless you were Leonard Cohen or Margaret Atwood. So I decided a very long time ago that if I had to work full-time, I would never have a job that actually involved creative writing. I wanted to

Welcome back to yet another Round Robin Blog Fest! If you've never joined us before, this is a fun little blog tour that will introduce you to several amazing authors. Our ring leader, Robin, asks us a question that we all answer in our own way. This month's question is:  What messages do your books give your readers? One thing I've come to recognize is that all of my sleuths,  from Audra Clemmings to Gilda Wright have one trait I love to play on. They are all resilient! When life gets tough, they all get up and GO! Gilda, the protagonist in my Gilda Wright Mysteries, has a bad breakup with a boyfriend which sends her to work at a local karate school to learn how to defend herself and gain some confidence. Instead, she falls in love with the school's owner, Sensei Mick Williams and ends up with a whole other set of problems when she discovers a body in the school. Throughout the series, Gilda gains confidence even after set backs and perserveres until she is ready to g
