Meet tomorrow's guest!
Elaine Viets writes two national bestselling mystery series. Her Dead-End Job series is a satiric look at a serious subject – the minimum-wage world. “Half-Price Homicide,” set at a South Florida designer consignment shop, is her ninth Dead-End Job. “Half Price Homicide” features secondhand clothes, first-degree murder and a top-notch mystery. It received a starred review in Publishers Weekly and a rave in the New York Times.
Elaine’s second series features St. Louis mystery shopper Josie Marcus. “An Uplifting Murder” is the fifth book. Elaine has won the Agatha, Anthony and Lefty Awards.
Elaine’s short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies, including “The Bedroom Door” in “Crimes by Moonlight,” edited by Charlaine Harris, the creator of Sookie Stackhouse of “Trueblood” fame. Her short stories have been published in Britain, Turkey and France.
She blogs for The Lipstick Chronicles and the Femmes Fatales.
Elaine lives in Fort Lauderdale with her husband, Don Crinklaw.
