Temporarily Insane
by Vicki Batman

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: Romantic Comedy Mystery

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

No man. Bad job. And Murder. Hattie Cooks is still searching for her dream job and one might be available...in the Big Apple, far from friends, family, and Allan Wellborn, the man who still makes her heart race. In the meantime, she finds temporary employment at an accounting firm where two auditor friends turn up dead.

Detective Allan Wellborn dropped Hattie for Blonde Bimbo who, coincidentally, is employed at NLB where fishy things are taking place. When Allan interviews Hattie, he must determine why
all signs point to her as a suspect.

Can Hattie discover why Allan dumped her and who is murdering auditors before death strikes again?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT ONE:

“We need to cover the ground rules.”

“Ground rules?” His brow vee-ed. “Is this normal?”

“Absolutely.” I nodded. “The ground rules are: No kissing. No hugging. No whispering lovey-dovey stuff in my ear. No nothing. Understand?”

“I understand, but I thought people in love do this.”

“Let’s set the record straight right now—we are not in love. And here’s another rule: don’t speak to anyone.”

“Don’t talk to anyone—why not?”

Noticing the bizarre look on his face, I relented. “Okay, you can talk. Just say one sentence.”

“Is this a weird family thing?”

“Nope. It’s a Hattie-who-is-being-nice thing.”

  4. First, thank you so much for hostessing me.

    Hi, Lisa! I hope you can check out my fun book. I promise at least one laugh.

    Hi, clojo9372: What a great question. I began some writing at age nine and penned a few poems. Always wrote good papers. Was an avid reader. Edited four newsletters for groups I was involved in. I confessed to a friend how I wished I could write and she said I could do it. In the end, it took me a long time to try. I'm glad I did, though. Sometimes, you have to live life.

    Hi, DanieX: my pleasure.

    1. Hi, Rose-Marie! Haven't we all had our moments when things/life isn't going our way and we have to wade through the mess for a while? And btw, if she wasn't in a mess, I'm pretty sure there wouldn't be a story. Hugs!

  14. Where do you find the inspiration for your stories?

    1. Hi, Mai T.! Inspiration usually comes from something someone says. For example: my son's girlfriend broke up with him and he dragged into my office while I was working and said, "I have a theory about love." My head with bing! I held up a finger and said, "One sec." Scribbled down that phrase and shifted into *mom mode* so he could unload. But all the while my head was humming and I couldn't wait to dive into that.

      My first draft is mostly dialogue, then I go back and revise, add, edit. It's a long process. Thanks for posting.
