Trouble is Back in the Form of Two Wise-Cracking Senior Citizens!
Buddhapuss Ink LLC signs 2013 Mystery Times Winner Linda Browning
Readers fell in love with them in No Wake, the 2013 Mystery Times Ten winning submission from the charismatic mind of Linda Browning, and well, now they're back! Buddhapuss Ink is pleased to announce that Leslie and Belinda will soon be bringing their wise-cracking ways to an all new mystery series.
Get ready to get down and dirty with these meddling senior citizens as they let their curiosity get the better of them. Sticky situations and comedic antics are sure to abound as Browning sets her characters loose once again. Buckle up and make sure to keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times, it's going to be a bumpy ride!
"Everyone at Buddhapuss Ink is looking forward to working with Linda again. It was a crazy ride the first time and this promises to be a roller coaster unleashed and off the tracks!" said Bradley. "I think her characters are the kind of comic relief that cozy mystery readers love. Think Miss Marple with a penchant for shopping at the Dollar Store. Her stories are fast-paced reads that will leave you rolling on the floor. I want to live next door to Leslie when I retire!"
"When MaryChris offered me a publishing contract and then told me that I could not run out and blab the news until she made a public announcement…it was like having verifiable evidence of the existence of Santa Claus and then being slapped with a gag order. I was good…I didn’t blab too much…husbands, daughters, and best friends are surely exempt from gag orders. Right? All kidding aside, I'm so excited and grateful for this opportunity to write for Buddhapuss Ink."
Browning worked for many years in clerical and supervisory roles at the Clinton Valley Center in Michigan, but later followed her husband to Tennessee when he was asked to relocate for work. They are both happily retired (sort of) and living in a middle Tennessee retirement community. Linda found her love of creative writing again after requesting a laptop for Christmas in 2011. She'd dallied in various crafty endeavors like quilting and painting, but it was her thirst for storytelling that really stuck. In her own words, "Life is good and at 62 years of age…I’m finally getting going."
