Dying to Read – The Cate Kinkaid Files, Book #1
Cate Kinkaid's life is floundering. Unemployed, she jumps at the chance to be a temporary assistant private investigator in her uncle's PI firm. All she has to do for her first assignment is determine if a particular woman lives at a particular address.
But when she reaches that address, what she finds is a horde of hungry, gray-haired mystery readers, a deaf cat, and a dead body. And those turn out to be only the beginning of her problems.
About Lorena McCourtney (Grants Pass, Oregon Author)
Lorena McCourtney is the author of 48 books of mystery and romance. She began writing in grade school and submitted stories to various girls' magazines. Unimpressed with her youthful "talent," editors quickly returned the stories. She had better luck in high school with her first "professional" sale, an article published in an Alaskan magazine.
After graduation from Washington State with a degree in agriculture, she went to work for a Midwestern meat packing company. Where she quickly discovered she did not want to make a life's work of writing about raising hogs and making sausage. She then went on to write fiction - numerous children's short stories, confessions, and mass-market romance novels. After that it was Christian romances and finally the genre which she feels is her real home, lighthearted Christian mysteries.
Lorena has lived in the Grants Pass area for over 50 years. She and her husband Jim enjoy traveling, relaxing in their travel trailer on their Rogue River lot, and searching for treasures (and finding junk) with their metal detector.
