Divorce a husband, lose a career …grapple with a murder.
TV journalist Elizabeth “E.M.” Danniher will tell you she committed two sins — she didn’t stay young, and she made an enemy of a powerful news executive — her ex. She used to break national news. Now her top story as the “Helping Out!” reporter at dinky KWMT-TV in Sherman, Wyoming is getting a defective toaster repaired.
Tough, funny and determined, Elizabeth wrestles with isolation, keeping a professional edge, and an evolving self-image. Is Wyoming — the land of cattle, cowboys, tumbleweeds, and fewer than six people per square mile — her new home or a road to permanent obscurity?
Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who sees her as a handy rung on his career ladder. And there’s the matter of a deputy sheriff—missing or murdered? Elizabeth finds herself investigating at the insistence of a girl who’s set on proving her father’s innocence. Not that enigmatic rancher Thomas Burrell makes investigating easy.
But Elizabeth won’t fade to black without a fight, no matter how final some might want to make her Sign Off.

What was your inspiration for this book?
My first career in newspapers, and my love of the open skies of Wyoming. During one of my many research calls to a television news producer/editor, I wondered aloud why I set this mystery series at a TV station instead of a newspaper office. "It's because you like to ask questions," he pointed out. And he is right.
