When One Door Opens, Another One Hits You In The Tush

We’ve all heard the expression: when one door closes, another one opens. And while it’s easier to focus on the open door, the one that represents what’s new, unexpected, fresh, and possible, it’s not always wise to ignore the door we had to close to move forward.

Mollie Hunt: Crazy Cat Lady Mysteries and more

My guest today— my first guest ever for my new Book Talk series— is Debbie De Louise. Debbie is the author of The Cobble Cove Mystery series (A Stone’s Throw, Between a Rock and a Hard Place, and Written in Stone). Other of ber books include CloudyRainbow; a romantic comedy novella, When Jack Trumps Ace; and several short stories. Her latest, a standalone mystery, Reason toDie,  will be out this coming month of April.

Welcome, Debbie!

I see you have written both stand-alone books and a series. Which do you prefer to write? To read? Why?
