    M.E. Browning, writer of wrongs, chats about her new book SHADOW RIDGE with Pam

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes M.E. (Micki) Browning to the studio.  This second visit with Micki is all about her new brand and new book SHADOW RIDGE.   
    Micki Browning writes the Jo Wyatt Mysteries and the Agatha-nominated and award-winning Mer Cavallo Mysteries (as Micki Browning). An FBI National Academy graduate, Micki worked in municipal law enforcement for more than two decades and retired as a captain. Micki also writes short stories and nonfiction. Her work has appeared in dive magazines, anthologies, mystery magazines, and textbooks. She is a professional divemaster and owns a vast array of scuba equipment she uses for "research".  
    About SHADOW RIDGE:  Echo Valley, Colorado, is a place where the natural beauty of a stunning river valley meets a budding hipster urbanity. But when an internet stalker is revealed to be a cold-blooded killer in real life the peaceful community is rocked to its core.  
    It should have been an open-and-shut case: the suicide of Tye Horton, the designer of a cutting-edge video game. But Detective Jo Wyatt is immediately suspicious of Quinn Kirkwood, who reported the death. When Quinn reveals an internet stalker is terrorizing her, Jo is skeptical. Doubts aside, she delves into the claim and uncovers a link that ties Quinn to a small group of beta-testers who had worked with Horton. When a second member of the group dies in a car accident, Jo’s investigation leads her to the father of a young man who had killed himself a year earlier. But there’s more to this case than a suicide, and as Jo unearths the layers, a more sinister pattern begins to emerge–one driven by desperation, shame, and a single-minded drive for revenge.  As Jo closes in, she edges ever closer to the shattering truth–and a deadly showdown that will put her to the ultimate test.

    Strange Magic After Midnight...with Incoherent Dust...

    in Poetry

    “There’s a strange magic we encounter reading poetry. Something undefinable, a lifting of the spirit to match that of a writer who expresses in words what we thought had only existed, unspoken, in the heart. Have you ever had that moment, reading, when an artist’s words stop you in your tracks and make your jaw drop? Felt that rawness and exposure when someone captures in a poem what was once secret, hidden within your soul? Here we dig deep and unafraid. We find our inspiration in unexpected places and unearth that strange magic within.”
