Interview with the Author

Q - So, what makes the Annabelle Archer series special?
A - The Annabelle Archer wedding planner mysteries are based on my 20 plus years of planning society weddings in Washington, DC. That means I’ve seen tons of crazy things happen, and I’ve worked with lots of colorful characters. I bring that light-hearted sense of fun and zany characters into the novels. A lot of the humorous details I include in my books actually happened at my weddings! And since the books are about weddings, there is plenty of food, décor, and behind the scenes details.
The Annabelle Archer books are fast-paced cozy mysteries featuring a female protagonist with a little romance and comedy thrown in. You’ll find the series focuses on the murder mystery and amateur sleuth genre overall, with a jewelry heist caper and ghost story in the mix to keep things interesting. Plus, Richard acquired a Yorkie in Review To A Kill, so the latest books are also for fans of animal or dog mysteries.

Q – In what order should I read the books?
A – If you do want to read them in order, I’d suggest the following sequence:
- Better Off Wed
- For Better Or Hearse
- Dead Ringer—A Novella
- Review To A Kill
- Death on the Aisle
- Night of the Living Wed—A Novella

Q - So, why should readers give these books a try?
A - Because the Annabelle Archer cozy mystery series is fun, light, and the perfect escape or beach reading. Plus, the first book in the series won the Agatha Award for the Best First Novel.
