What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
When I wrote my first novel, EVIL WAYS, Sheriff Tom Myers was a secondary character. He wasn't the lead, but was important to the story. My second novel, DEADLY GAMES! took place in the same fictional town where I set Evil Ways. There was no plan to use the sheriff in the story, but the character kept chittering away in the back of my brain that this is where they should call the cops. So… Sheriff Myers and his deputies returned.
I thought that would be their last appearance, but like all good characters, Tom Myers would pop up every so often and remind me he was still around and ask when he was getting his own book. Eventually, a story popped into my head that was a good fit and Tom Myers and his deputies returned. I was surprised by the reaction to their first story and am currently working on a second Tom Myers Mystery. Fifteen years after his first appearance, Tom Myers gets his own series at last.

Point and Shoot for Your life by Robin Murphy is a tale of mystery and suspense. Hannah Mills, local photographer, is struggling for work and to pay her rent. Great-Aunt Dorothy comes to the rescue from beyond the grave after she leaves Hannah a First Phase Indian Chief Navajo blanket, a very rare item worth at least a million dollars. That kind of money would set Hannah up for life. But, before she can take it to auction, her niece is kidnapped and a ransom demanded – the blanket. Hannah has to go to France to get her niece back, but she has no money to get there until she robs a bank. Arrested for the crime as she makes the drop in Paris, Hannah isn’t going quietly and she drags FBI agent Finn MacNally along with her for the ride. Can they find Mandy before it’s too late? Can they really win a fight against the biggest Russian human and drug trafficking ring or will their luck run out at the last minute?
Point and Shoot for Your Life by Robin Murphy is a funny book. A mixture of humor, murder, mystery, suspense and romance, it has all the ingredients of a rollicking good read and it delivered all it promised. I found myself laughing, cringing, and holding my breath at different points during the story as I hung on for the ride. This is a book with no let-up; it starts on a high and just keeps on going, action all the way. The plot was very clever, brilliantly written, and the characters really fitted the bill. This is a story that will leave you breathless and, by the time the end arrives, worn out and ready to let go. Really great story, well-written and good fun to read. Would love to see more of this.
