Read an excerpt:
Author Bio:I live and write in the Indianapolis area. After earning a PhD in Computer Science in 2002 and teaching and researching for seven years, I’ve returned to the childhood dream of becoming an author. I better do it now because I won’t get a third life.
Behind me, I have a ton of academic experience and have written about twenty extremely boring papers on query languages and such, for example this one in the ACM Transactions on Databases. (That’s a mouthful.)
Now, I write in the mystery/thriller/suspense genres and sometimes science fiction. I know for some people databases would be the more beloved of the options, but for me, I finally realized that my heart wasn’t in it. So I took up a second life, as a self-published fiction author.
Online, I do the Writer Cy cartoon series about the (mis)adventures of researching, writing, and self-publishing in today’s shifting climate. I also love to design and create my own covers using GIMP.
Suspend reality for a couple hours and treat yourself to one of the most unique cat mysteries you're likely to find. A "shape shifter" cozy...who knew???
Eyeshine introduces us to PJ "Peeping Jane" Taylor, a freelance reporter who turns into a cat each night and records everything she sees with a camera embedded in her collar. When she sets out on the hunt for a thief in her trailer park she ends up witnessing an altercation between an autistic boy and cantankerous Chip Greene which ends with the old man drowning. Young Alex is accused of murder, but PJ knows there's more to the story than meets the eye, she just has to find a way to clear Alex's name without revealing her own secret life!
The mystery of what happened to Chip is easily resolved; it's PJ's character that I found so compelling. The author does an amazing job describing her unique abilities and how she's been able to keep it hidden for so many years. I hope this ends up becoming a series because the situations PJ could find herself in are endless!
