Murder and Other Unnatural Disasters

Murder and Other Unnatural Disasters

“A smart caper with a heroine to match.” – Kirkus Reviews – Selected as a Recommended Review

“…An excellent read. It has everything needed for a cozy afternoon curled up on the sofa – murder, mystery, humor, and plenty of action. The plot is extremely detailed and so well written that I found myself hooked on page one.” Readers’ Favorites

“…a delightful twisting maze complete with Hollywood film production, murder and mayhem, and sexy and quirky characters….” Kimberley Troutte, New York Times bestselling author

The good news is that she delivers a fun, frothy read with lots of kooky showbiz types circling our heroine, amateur sleuth Corrie Locke. You might say I came for the title and stayed for the characterization, as Sideris moves the story along with a cast of characters straight out of Central Casting and plot twists that would be unlikely in Des Moines.” – Mr. Media

One of two national winners of the Helen McCloy/Mystery Writers of America (MWA) Scholarship Award for Mystery Writing.

Watch out Southern California! There’s a new entertainment attorney in town and she’s got game. Only problem is, it’s not the one she should be playing. Corrie Locke belongs behind a desk, not behind a Glock. She should be taking VIP calls, not nosing around a questionable suicide. Instead, she’s hot on the trail of a murderer.

Luckily, she’s the daughter of a late, great private eye and she’s inherited his love of sleuthing…and illegal weaponry. It doesn’t help matters that her gene for caution is a recessive one. Corrie finds herself in the center of a murder case, unearthing suspects in shocking places. With a cold-blooded killer on the loose, Corrie will have to up her game, or die trying.

Thank you for visiting my cyber home!

At nine-years-old, I turned into girl detective, after overdosing on Nancy Drew books. I cracked my first case – The Mystery of the Missing Pet Turtle – and continued case-cracking until my college days. Now I write my own soft-boiled mysteries starring Corrie Locke, a newly minted lawyer with thick, mostly manageable hair, a partially furnished beach pad, covert access to a high-end wardrobe, and a dream job in a movie studio. The buzz-kill? She’s the daughter of a late, great private eye, and together they solved a few hard-to-crack cases, which makes everyone assume she’s inherited Dad’s sweet sleuthing skills. But has she?

I’m busy working on Corrie’s next adventure. In the meantime, feel free to follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
