Casket Case (The Cynthia Shade Mysteries Book 1) by Lee James ~ Genre: Cozy Mystery
Cynthia Shade. That’s her name. She has ADHD and cynophobia. That’s just a fancy way of saying she’s terrified of dogs. Not all dogs mind you, just the tiny ones that come at you with their razor-sharp fangs and frenzied eyes. To make it worse, she can’t find a job, rather, she can’t keep a job, and she’s about to be evicted. Just when she gets a glimmer of hope she’s blackmailed into trying to solve a murder.
Cue the handsome sheriff who awakens real interest in perpetually single Cynthia, and a cast of crazed suspects. One of whom is determined she doesn’t make it out of this adventure alive.

When did you start thinking of yourself as a writer?
I seriously began to think of myself as a writer, when I started taking my writing seriously. As long as I dabbled, it wasn’t real to me. When I made my writing a priority, actually carving out time for it in my schedule. I joined a writer’s group for accountability, feeding off the energy and the generous knowledge of my peers. While I still don’t write every day, I was able to work out a writing schedule that works. As a result, after years of leaving work half-finished, I was able to publish my first book last year. I have three more scheduled for this year. Writing isn’t a designation, it’s an action.
