Hello MyHappy People, Today I finally got my wish to chat with a cozy mystery author and I hit the jackpot with Stephanie LaVigne. Stephanie is a bestselling author of more than fifty popular mystery and romance novels under both her own name and pen names. She is known for her humor, quirky characters, adventurous situations, and captivating plots.
I got to read an advanced copy of her next book, Sunshine State of Crime and she can tell you, it is everything you want a cozy mystery to be! The ebook version is available for pre-order now, and I highly recommend it.
Stephanie is quite an adventurous person. She helped crew a sailboat on a trans-Atlantic crossing, she managed to "awkwardly" mush a dogsled over the snow, and somehow managed to hiking Mount Washington without actually meaning to do it. Stephanie has been blessed with all kinds of real-life adventures to help inspire the fictional ones she writes. Stephanie lives in South Florida surrounded by palm trees, peacocks, a few wild kids, one wild husband, and a tribe of loved ones. We talked so long, I ended up splitting the interview up into two shows. IN this first episode we talk more about how Stephanie transitioned from her previous careers into being a bestselling author. Be sure to come back next Wednesday for part two when we talk more specifically about Stephanie's upcoming cozy mystery books. You can definitely tell we had fun with this interview and you will love listening to it. Don't wait ... go listen now!
Enjoy (I did)!
