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 murder mystery and amateur sleuth genre overall, with a jewelry heist caper in the mix to keep things interesting.
I’m working on an Annabelle cookbook to share the recipes for all the culinary treats mentioned in the books. Richard is a caterer, after all, and he loves food and cooking! So, in a way these books are also culinary mysteries.
I’m working on another “between the brides” novella set at a mountain resort with a history of ghosts sightings and paranormal activity, so a little bit of a supernatural cozy mystery/haunted hotel adventure will be in the mix. And soon the series will take Annabelle and her team overseas!

Q - What order should I read the books in?
A – You won’t be lost if you read the books in this cozy mystery series out of order but 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

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. Better Off Wed has hit number one in the Kindle store and the series has hit the top ten bestsellers list on Kindle for Cozy Mysteries, Amateur Sleuths, and Women Sleuths. Plus, the first book in the series won the Agatha Award for the Best First Novel.
And thanks for reading!
