About the Book

What do you feel most passionately about? 

For many years it was my job. As a photojournalist I took pictures of some of the most horrific examples of pain and injustice hoping to focus the world’s attention on these atrocities in order to bring about change. It was rewarding and at the same time soul destroying. I still strive for justice, but now I help people on an individual level and strive to use my inheritance to support charities helping those who are suffering here in Scotland and abroad.


If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Good Lord, only one? There are so many to choose from. I suppose I would strive to be more open with the people I care about. It’s a new experience for me to have stability in my life and to have friends and neighbors who genuinely care about me and want to share the highs and lows in my life. I need to get better at opening up and letting people in. 



Complete the following sentence:

I am the kind of person who follows my conscious without any thought of practicalities. That would explain why I am now the foster mother to a flock of sheep who were about to be made into c-h-o-p-s even though I have no experience whatsoever with ovine husbandry.  Still I’m learning. I’ve named them all after authors Agatha (Christie) and Oscar (Wilde) live in the back garden at the moment and are responsible for keeping the grass trimmed. 


What is in your refrigerator right now? On your bedroom floor? On your nightstand? In your garbage can?

Fridge – wine, cheese, left overs from a curry pasty I had at the pub yesterday and some marrow bones the butcher sent over for the dog. 
Bedroom floor – Clothes and a selection of crime scene photos I had to take another look at in the middle of the night. Something’s off, but I haven’t figured out what it is yet.
Nightstand – Half dozen books I’m working on reading, but never seem to have time for. 
Garbage can – Dozen empty wine bottles, a melon I never got around to peeling and two packs of sheep treats that didn’t go down well with my wooly wordsmiths



If you could go back in time for one day, where would you go?


I would go back to the day before my Uncle Ben died. Of course, I was off on assignment when he passed away. Didn’t get to hold his hand or talk to him one last time. He still had so much left to give in this life and he was taken too soon.  I know how much he loved me. He’d raised me as his own from the time my parent’s died. He was my compass point. Always the way home in my wandering life. I worry that he didn’t know how much he meant to me. I would like to have had the chance to tell him. Then again, perhaps he knew. He left me the thing that meant more to him than anything else in this life. His distillery.


What is the one word you would use to define yourself? What is the one word others would use to define you?

Wow that’s a tough one. I’ve always made a mental note of the first three words that pop into my head to describe someone I’ve interviewed or photographed. I don’t always understand the significance of the words when they come, but the meaning usually slips into focus by the end. Instinct or insight, it hasn’t failed me yet and the best of my photographic portraits always captured the essence of the crucial three words. I guess if I were describing myself I’d go with tenacious, creative and insightful.  Others would probably go for stubborn, nosy and occasionally rash.

No good deed goes unpunished in the Whisky Business cozy mystery series as distillery owner Abigail Logan uncovers dark secrets—and murder—at a local charity.

Photojournalist Abi Logan is finally ready to put her hectic career on hold and set down roots in the heart of the Scottish countryside. Studying the business and art of distilling whisky at Abbey Glen and volunteering at the Shepherd’s Rest women’s shelter in her spare time seem a surefire way to find the peace and stability she craves. It’s also the logical way to take her mind off her personal life. Abi’s business partner, Grant MacEwan, is facing a career-threatening disability, and as much as Abi longs to be there for him, he seems to prefer the company of a rival.

But as Abi becomes more involved with Shepherd’s Rest, she discovers that their refuge is elusive. When the shelter is rocked by a murder/suicide, Abi is outraged by the police’s lack of attention to these already marginalized women. Increasingly confident in her own skills as an investigator, Abi steps in to find out what the police will not: who left one young woman dead and another missing. But when more deadly deeds come to light, Abi must race to unravel the connections between the shelter’s benefactors and the women they have pledged to protect—and expose the killer before he strikes again.
