I'm currently at work on two cozy mystery series. One is a cake decorating mystery, and the first book is called Murder Takes the Cake. The other is an embroidery mystery series (the first book is titled The Quick and The Thread) and is being written under the pseudonym Amanda Lee.


Cupid’s arrow is making its way to Tallulah Falls, Oregon, bringing lots of business to Marcy Singer’s embroidery specialty shop. But the course of true love never has run smoothly….

St. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and residents are in a romantic frame of mind. In fact, one blushing bride has commissioned Marcy to embellish her mother’s vintage wedding gown with jewels for her Valentine’s Day wedding. Marcy is delighted–until she finds that the worst bridezillas have nothing on this bride to be. When the bride’s future mother-in-law is found stabbed to death outside Marcy’s shop, matters go from bad to worse….

This book is written under the pseudonym Amanda Lee.

"Thread Reckoning is an entertaining read, with just the right mix of mystery and romance to make fans of cozy mysteries eager for the next book in the series." - Reviewed by Susan Santangelo, author of "Moving Can Be Murder" for Suspense Magazine

"This charming cozy contains a difficult to solve homicide because no one seems to have a viable motive.  Readers will enjoy Amanda Lee's likable whodunit." - Harriet Klausner
