Congratulations to Brenda who guessed last week's Mystery Author. It was Lynette Sowell! Brenda's won one of Lynette's Heartsong Mystery novels: A SUSPICION OF STRAWBERRIES or THE WILES OF WATERMELON. Good job, Brenda!

Now for today's Mystery Author:

Welcome, Mystery Author!

What are the names of the two main characters in your current Heartsong mystery series?

LaTisha and Hardy Barnhart.

They are based on two real people. Tell us about that.
LaTisha's and Hardy's physical characteristics are based on my best friend and her husband. Just as LaTisha is taller than Hardy, my friend is taller than her husband. I just love having two characters with such out-of-the-norm characteristics. It's refreshing.

For the third book in your series, you plan to tour a business in your hometown. What is it? Are you a little nervous?
For book three, I'll have to tour our local funeral home to get a feel for the atmosphere. I'm just dying to take that tour. . .BWA-HA-HA! I'm not a bit nervous about it at present, maybe because I have so many other things going on.

What is the name of this book?
EAT, DRINK AND BE BURIED, though my editor has indicated the title might have to be changed.

We know you love to write. But there is a part of the process you hate. What is it? Explain.
OH! Who told you? I hate, hate, HATE the editing process. Funny thing is most writers love the editing process and hate the writing part, but I'm opposite of that. For me the writing part is way easy. . .not to mention FUN! But as soon as edits land on my virtual desk. . .just bury me.

One last clue, Mystery Author. Your main character suffers from an annoying condition. What is it?
Ah, you must wait to see what develops. LaTisha will struggle with symptoms of the condition in book 2, and be officially diagnosed and taking the bull by the horns in book 3.

Thanks, Mystery Author!

Can you guess who our mystery author is? Leave your guess, along with your e-mail address, and you could win a new Heartsong novel like Brenda just did!

Good sleuthing!

I belive the author is: Elizabeth Ludwig & Janelle Mowery.

I have to change my entry. I thought the answer was either Elixabeth Ludwig & Janell Mowery. I WAS WRONG.

This had me really stumped and I have up.

The mystery author is: S. Dionne Moore. I came across the answer by accident!
