LET'S GET COZY! GONE WITH THE TWINS: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED 
GONE WITH THE TWINS
A League of Literary Ladies Mystery
BY KYLIE LOGAN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
The national bestselling author of And Then There Were Nuns takes readers back to South Bass Island on Lake Erie, where a pair of ambitious twins are causing double trouble for the League of Literary Ladies.

The League of Literary Ladies is currently enjoying Margaret Mitchell’s saga of the South, Gone with the Wind. But there’s one situation on South Bass Island that they wish would simply blow over.

Kidnapped as teenagers, the children of a famous movie star are now media darlings after a miraculous escape. What’s next for the celebrity twins? They’re opening an over-the-top B and B called Tara on South Bass Island, and frankly, they don’t give a damn about the competition—including Bea Cartwright’s own beloved inn. 

The other members of the League—Chandra, Kate, and Luella—are turning scarlet. But when local realtor Vivian Frisk is found murdered, and the suspects include Chandra, who lost her beau to the frisky Vivian, the Ladies rally to her defense. They may have to skim a few chapters of the Civil War soap opera and focus on bringing justice to the island they call home…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Pseudonym for Casey Daniels. 

So maybe you already know that I’m not just Kylie Logan, I’m also Casey Daniels and a few other writers, too. What’s it like to have multiple personalities and the pen names to go with them? Well, I was once lucky enough to interview mystery great Elizabeth Peters for an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. She writes under more than one name, too, and she described the experience perfectly, “If you’re only one person,” she said, “you’re boring!”

And I guess I’d add to that—if you only write one mystery series, you’re boring, too! Or maybe you’re just not getting visited as often by the Idea Fairy. The only way to keep that particular critter quiet is to follow where those ideas lead and to date, they’ve led me to write three different mystery series under the Kylie name.

So who is Kylie? I’m a fulltime writer who has loved mysteries since I was a kid. My dad was a Cleveland Police detective, and he introduced me to Sherlock Holmes stories. He also gave me my first investigating experiences when on his days off, we’d pile into the car and hit the streets to look for stolen cars. When he retired from the force, Dad became the head of security for the Cleveland Public Library.

Crooks and books! I guess I come by my love for mysteries honestly.
 
I have a degree in English, experience as a journalist and writing teacher, and lots of ideas about interesting ways to kill people. This makes me an excellent guest as cocktail parties, but I’ve noticed that the hostess doesn’t always trust me near the food. Could that have something to do with the book on poisons sticking out of my purse?
 
I began my career writing historical romance and my book “Devil’s Diamond” was nominated for a RITA award as historical of the year by Romance Writers of America. I’ve also written contemporary romance, young adult horror (as Zoe Daniels and Connie Laux), and one children’s book, “Fright Knight,” in the RL Stine’s Ghosts of Fear Street series. If you click on the “AKA” button at the top of the page, you’ll see all my pen names.

I enjoy weaving and knitting, exploring old cemeteries, and I am a beekeeper. I can’t pass up an antique shop (there might be buttons in there!). I can’t put down a classic book (even if I already know the story!). And I can’t say no to a good bowl of chili. Lucky for me, my husband is the world’s greatest chili maker.

When I’m not writing, I’m usually with my family and our two dogs, Ernie, an adorable Airedale, and Oscar, a Jack Russell rescue who came for a short-term stay and ten years later, is still here. Those of you who have ever lived with/met/had dealings with a Russell will certainly understand how knowing him has increased my propensity for murder.
