I have a very special treat for you today, people: the wonderful Jamie Lee Scott – author, jewelry designer, horseowner, rodeo rider, restauranteur and screenwriter… and my very own critique partner!
Without further ado, here’s Jamie:
Jamie still lives in Iowa (though she visits California as often as possible) with her husband, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 horses. She writes with a view of her 6 acre farm.
Nick Christianson is running from the demons of his past, and that has put him back in his old stomping grounds in Salinas, CA. Nick has transferred from the San Francisco Homicide Division and is now adjusting to this new police department.
Mimi never expects to run into her old college flame Nick, when she takes on an executive protection case for New York Times bestselling author Lauren Silke. But when Lauren’s assistant is murdered, the homicide case, along with Mimi, land in Nick’s lap. Will Mimi and Nick be able to solve this murder without killing each other first?
Even though it’s his job, Nick is loath to find the killer. That is until a teenage girl with ties to the victim disappears. Now Mimi, Nick and Charles race against the clock to find the killer and hopefully find the girl in the process.
And finally, just for you, a special excerpt from Textual Relations:

Yay, thanks so much for having me here today! Any chance to hang with Jenna is a great opportunity. I love her and her books.
Hi Jamie Lee!
Can I just say, ‘Textual Relations’ is the most fabulous title, evah! I’ll have to read it for that reason alone 🙂
Thanks for being here, Jamie! And Dana, thanks for stopping by. You’ll enjoy Mimi and Nick. And Sebastian. And Charles. 🙂
Haha, thanks Dana. I like to have fun with my titles.
Thanks for having me Jenna. I enjoy spending time with Mimi, Nick and Charles. I hope everyone else does too.
And now I have yet more to add to my reading list. =)
As a writer, I’m kind of like you. I have a rough outline. I deviate from it frequently. In my yet-to-be-finished novel, I changed “whodunnit” at least three times along the way. And considered a fourth.
As a reader, I want to be captured by the characters. I don’t mind if I figure it out by the end if the story is tight and the characters matter to me. But I love a good twist along the way, too. =)
And I love your titles.
Mary, as a reader, I agree with you, I want engaging characters. Keeping character fresh in a series is a challenge. Thanks on the titles. My next two novels are titled A Snitch in Time and What a Meth.
I didn’t know you were planning one called A Snitch in Time. That’s awesome! LOVE that title!
See Jenna, I have a few surprises up my sleeve. I got the idea for the title from a murder that occurred about 30 miles from here. They spray painted “snitches die” next to the victim.
I love reading mysteries but realize I’m too much of a pantser to ever write one. I’m with Dana – Textual Relations is one of the best titles I have ever seen. Can’t wait to download these on to my Kindle!
Thanks Rita. I’m so glad everyone likes the title. I hope you enjoy the novels. I really enjoy writing them.
