AUTHOR INTERVIEW



How did you come up with the title of your book or series?

Midnight Snacks Are Murder is about a rash of break-ins throughout the Victorian Cape May neighborhood, where the perpetrator is eating victims’ junk food and stealing their precious knickknacks in the middle of the night. It’s all pretty ridiculous, until the town hero’s house is hit, and he ends up dead. Either the crimes are escalating, or the killer is a copycat trying to cover their tracks.


Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image?

My cover artist at Kensington Publishing designed the cover. It really captures the setting of the crimes. I love the colors, and there’s Figaro next to the plate of chocolate chip cookies on the counter. Although the real Figaro would have stolen a cookie by now.


Who is your favorite character from your book and why?

Midnight Snacks introduces the world’s worst handyman named Itty Bitty Smitty. He has a flair for the dramatic and a love of the Three Stooges. He’s based on my father who passed away several years ago. I had a lot of fun honoring his memory by putting him in the story.



What other books are similar to your own?  What makes them alike?

I’ve had a couple of fans tell me that my books are similar to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series because they’re very funny they take place in south Jersey. I take that as a very high compliment, although one difference would be that mine are traditional cozies with no sex or language.


How can we contact you or find out more about your books?

I’m all over social media and I love to get notes from my readers. You can also follow me on Goodreads and Bookbub where you’ll get announcements about sales and new releases. And I’m in a Facebook Fan group with eleven other fabulous cozy mystery authors called the Cozy Mystery Crew. Twice a month I host the day and you can see for yourself just why I need adult supervision.



What can we expect from you in the future?

My third book Restaurant Weeks Are Murder will be out next March. Poppy gets to realize a long-time dream and work alongside professional chefs in a commercial kitchen. Tim has entered a Chopped style competition for Restaurant Week, and he’s asked Poppy to be a chef on his team. There’s more heating up in the kitchen than just the stoves.


What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

There is nothing better than word of mouth. I’ve heard of people reading my book in public and laughing out loud so much that the person next to them pulled out their phone and bought a copy. There is no greater review than that! If you follow me on BookBub, you have the option to recommend my books to other readers you haven’t met yet.

When her sleepwalking aunt is accused of committing murder, Poppy McAllister finds out there's no rest for the weary . . .

Between trying to get her gluten-free baking business off the ground and helping her aunt remodel her old Victorian into the Butterfly House Bed and Breakfast in Cape May, New Jersey, Poppy is ready to call, “Mayday!” And now Aunt Ginny—who's a handful wide-awake—is sleepwalking on her new sleeping pill prescription and helping herself to neighbors’ snacks and knickknacks.

Even more alarming, a local humanitarian who worked with troubled teens is found murdered, and the police suspect the “Snack Bandit.” Other than a bad case of midnight munchies and some mild knickknack kleptomania, Aunt Ginny is harmless. Someone’s trying to frame her. Poppy will need to work tirelessly to uncover the killer and put the case to rest—before Aunt Ginny has to trade in her B & B for a bunk bed behind bars . . .

Includes Seven Recipes from Poppy’s Kitchen!
