Now that I’ve been picked up by a real publisher, I’ve found that I have a new family. I’m now a part of the Winter Goose Publishing family and all of us lean on and support one another. We disagree, we laugh, cheer and occasionally poke good natured fun at one another. I haven’t quite figured out where I fit in; at times I feel like a big brother and at other times the red-headed step child. I’m trying to read all the books written by my new family but as you can imagine, that’s quite challenging and I’ve got plenty of excuses.
I am a big fan of Kathryn Mattingly and she’s sold me on the crime novels of Hemmie Martin. Hemmie is English in the literal sense and my friend Kathryn recently profiled her, on her own web site.
“Hemmie spent six years living in the south of France, and currently lives in Essex, England, where being a novel writing specialty nurse apparently wasn’t enough, since she and her husband also board guide dogs in training.”
That sounds so perfectly English, doesn’t it? Hemmie Martin’s latest novel is the intriguingly named Garlic & Gauloises and I’m happy to share the cover. To read more of Kathryn’s interview with Hemmie Martin, please click here.
