Meet "Death in Dahlonega" author Deborah Malone
Recently, I met author Deborah Malone and was thrilled to learn about her new mystery, Death in Dahlonega. When we discussed ways to share about her book, I asked her to answer a couple of fun questions to help readers get to know her better. She's also giving away a copy of the book, so be sure to check the details below to enter!
Deborah, thank you for joining us today!
If you had a dinner party and could invite seven people - past, present, future - real or fictional - who would you invite and why, and what would you serve?
This is a hard question. I'd like to invite Jesus, but I would probably be like Martha and worry about everything being just right. Then I guess I'd like to invite Anne George who is a cozy mystery writer who had a lot of influence on the way I write. I'd love to see my parents and grandmother again so that brings the total to five leaving two more. I should probably say a president or something, but I'd love to meet the writers of Psych or Monk.
If money and time were no object, where would you spend one month of your time, and what would you do during that month?
I have fibromyalgia so it limits what I can do. So while we are pretending I'm going to say that I don't have fibro and I can do what I want physically. With that being said I've always wanted to go on a mission trip - I've thought about the Smiles Mission Trip. Then for fun I'd like to go to Hawaii and take pictures!
About Death in Dahlonega:
Winner in American Christian Fiction Writers' Category Five writing contest!
A friendly adventure turns to murder and mayhem in the north Georgia mountains. Historical writer Trixie Montgomery is asked to cover Gold Rush Days in the picturesque Georgia mountain town, Dahlonega.
Trixie seizes the chance to mix business with pleasure and asks her best friend, Dee Dee to tag along. Their well laid plans go awry when Dee Dee is discovered standing over the lifeless body of prominent citizen, John Tatum - the very man she'd had a run in with earlier that day - holding a bloody pickax in her hands.
Can Trixie find a way to finish her assignment and keep Dee Dee out of the slammer?
