It all started here with this writing project of mine. This chick who lives in my head and was begging for a story--for an adventure--a junkin' adventure, road-trippin' moment of her own. I acquiesced to her demands and began writing her story introducing her friends, her enemies, and her world. First Monday Murder A Jimmie Rae Flea Market Mystery is the result. So with a box of FMM books I took to the blacktops criss-crossing my sweet, bluebonnet bloomin' Texas to sign books, meet new friends, visit with old friends, and as always look for funky JUNK. First Monday Murder A Jimmie Rae Flea Market Mystery made its debut in TEXAS, and I laughed more and slept less than I have in a LONNGGG time.
