When Amanda was sending Shadow of a Spout to print she asked me if I would write something to be included in the back of the book and I was so delighted to be asked. I wrote an introduction to tea which can be found in the last few pages of Shadow of a Spout. It was a very proud moment for me.
Now with the up coming release of The Grim Steeper I am thrilled to have been asked to add some information to the end of this book as well! To see The Grim Steeper in print and with my own name in it is such a thrill and a privilege! I can not wait to have it in my hands and see what happens next!
The national bestselling author of "Shadow of a Spout" invites readers back to the Finger Lakes town of Gracious Grove for more tea and murder... Mid-October in the charming Finger Lakes town of Gracious Grove means it s time for the annual Fall Fling Townwide Tea Party. The highlight of the festivities is a roaming tea-tasting, which includes a stop at Auntie Rose s Victorian Tea House. Sophie Taylor would like to share her enjoyment of the event with her sort-of boyfriend, English teacher Jason Murphy, but Jason s dean has accused him of falsifying grades to help an athlete at the local college. Steamed and stressed, Jason shows up the night of the party with bags under his eyes. But the dean shows up under Sophie s Japanese Maple later that night, murdered, and now Jason is suspected of far worse than fudging grade reports. It s up to Sophie, her Nana, and their friends the Silver Spouts to pore over the clues to find out who really decided to teach the dean a lesson."
