LET'S GET COZY: THE PROBABILITY OF MURDER - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY



GIVEAWAY ENDED 
THE PROBABILITY OF MURDER
A Professor Sophie Knowles Mystery
BY ADA MADISON

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Dr. Sophie Knowles is a professor with a way of making even the most complex math problems fun for her students. But when the school's beloved librarian is found shot to death in the stacks, Sophie learns that her friend was more complex than she ever knew. Now, Sophie must take on some rigorous deduction homework before the chances for another murder on campus increase exponentially...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
"I've been a factory worker, a translator, a teacher, an experimental physicist, a nuclear safeguards engineer, a writer, a waitress, a miniaturist, a paralegal, a nun, a minister, a short order cook, a ticket taker, an editor, a crafter, and a cotton candy twirler.

I am still some of these, plus a wife.

No wonder I still have a spectrum of stories to write."

Camille Minichino has published eight novels in the Periodic Table Mysteries, featuring retired physicist GLORIA LAMERINO. The series continues in short stories on Kindle and smashwords.com. The latest is a re-issue of THE HYDROGEN MURDER on Kindle.
 
As Margaret Grace, she's published six novels in the Miniature Mysteries series, featuring miniaturist GERALDINE PORTER and her 11-year-old granddaughter, Maddie. The latest is MIX-UP IN MINIATURE, paperback from Perseverence Press.
 
As Ada Madison, she's published two novels in the Professor Sophie Knowles Mysteries, featuring college professor SOPHIE KNOWLES. The latest is THE PROBABILITY OF MURDER, paperback from Berkley Prime Crime.

Camille received her Ph.D. in physics from Fordham University, New York City. She is currently on the faculty of Golden Gate University, San Francisco and on the staff of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Camille is on the board of NorCal Sisters in Crime. She's a member of NorCal Mystery Writers of America and the California Writers Club.

I have not read any of her books - YET - but have several of them on my wishlist, to which I've just added this one. I find it amazing that she can write under so many names and that she has had such a variety of jobs - fascinating!
