Recently finished editing my mystery, A Class on Murder, with my very nice editor, Alice Duncan (http://www.aliceduncan.net). She and the people at Tekno have made the process very easy. When the cover art is ready, I’ll post it here.
What’s A Class on Murder about? I’m so glad you asked!
Ronnie Raven. She’s smart, she’s funny, and she might be next on a killer’s list! As the half-Cherokee, half-Irish daughter of a noted Native American artist, Ronnie Raven grew up learning to speak her mind. After years of trying to find her place in the world, she’s settled in as a Behavioral Psychology Professor at her Oklahoma alma mater, Pursley University. When Ronnie’s not rebelling against dress codes or the expectations of her department head, she enjoys teaching. That is, until she returns from a disastrous spring break to stumble across the body of a very dead colleague. Although framed to look like a suicide, it doesn’t take the police long to figure out that Weldon Crutchfield was murdered!
No one cared for Crutchfield, least of all Ronnie. But since when is that grounds for murder? When a detective investigating the crime wants to pin the crime on her, Ronnie becomes a rebel with a cause as she tries to learned who killed Crutchfield before facing murder charges. Ronnie discovers that many people had a reason to kill the professor. Was it the department head that Crutchfield was blackmailing? A student Crutchfield was sexually harassing? The flunking football player? Or a colleague who wants to take Crutchfield’s place in the University hierarchy?
Can Ronnie Raven figure out who the killer is—with the help of her drama professor best friend and a campus cop who just might be a new romantic interest—before she becomes the next victim?
