I have always loved to read great mysteries of every genre--Arthur Conan Doyle, Erle Stanley Gardner, Agatha Christie, Lawrence Sanders, Sue Grafton, to name a few!. As long as the characters are compelling, the plots crackling with suspense, and I'm able to guess "who done it" (whether or not I'm right!), the pages turn quickly and I can't put them down. I hope my Dana Cohen mystery series is the same way for you. I loved writing about Dana and her cast of wacky characters, good and evil. Four Shots Neat is the second book in the series. Although Dana is questioning her life, her loves, and her future, she simply can't help herself when there's a chance to jump into a problem no one else seems able to solve. Despite her friend Marilyn's warnings and her "retired" status from detective work, she and her P.I. colleague Itzy Itzkowitz seem to have the magic touch.
Ever since I studied creative writing with Joseph Papaleo at Sarah Lawrence College as an undergraduate, I have been determined to publish my own fiction. Four Shots Neat is my second published novel, and if you haven't read the first one, On the Rocks, it's also available in hardcopy from the publisher, Black Opal Books, or on Amazon, and in e-reader versions from Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. My writing has also appeared in AARP's "JFK Memories" blog, and in Patricia Dunn's "Why I Write" blog. For a sneak peak at Four Shots Neat, click the button below. You can follow me on Face Book at Rebecca Marks Author, and my Twitter handle is @rmarksauthor.
Please enjoy both of these books, and I'd appreciate it if you would post a review on Amazon for me!
