Ready, Aim, Murder!

American actress, Anna McKay, is thrilled to be part of the Cavendish Manor cast, filming a period drama at an English country estate. She looks forward to working with her handsome co-star, but is equally intrigued by the new assistant to the director.  A series of practical jokes on set causes her to fear someone is sabotaging the show, and her equilibrium is further off-balance when she has inexplicable visions that hint of the house’s sinister past.  When the practical jokes turn deadly, Anna isn’t sure who to trust, or if she will make it out of Cavendish Manor alive!

Purchase Pedestal

Who is Edwin Sterling’s Mystery Woman?Enquiring minds want to know.  And so does Edwin Sterling.

Made famous by his character, a medical doctor who solves crimes, Edwin Sterling is stuck in a media frenzy that reports every aspect of his life. He longs for a relationship based on reality, not fantasy. He also secretly feels dwarfed by the brave, intelligent image of his famous character, and wishes he could be more like him in real life. While the tabloids falsely accuse Edwin of having a mystery girlfriend, he meets Adriana, a beautiful American doing research at the British Museum. But strange things happen around her. Is it coincidence, or is she a cold-blooded killer? Edwin refuses to believe she is anything but perfect, but when she disappears, he will have to cross the world to find out the truth.

Purchase Silver Bells

Hilarious adventures in Christmas shopping!

Winning a gift certificate on Silver Bell Sunday would mean a Merry Christmas for Isobel, but her quest for the elusive prize is in jeopardy when she discovers she’s not the only customer hunting for a Christmas miracle.

Who is Ashley Sargeant Hagan?

Ashley Sargeant Hagan has the mind of Agatha Christie with the soul of Mark Twain.  Like Christie, she probes the hearts and minds of her characters, and of society, revealing the motivation behind what people do and say.  Like Twain, she views everything with a humorous and witty eye.  Her writing style is influenced by the nineteenth century novels she loves, but is combined with a very present-day use of dialogue.

Originally from Lakeland, Florida, she is a long-time resident of Nashville, Tennessee, where she lives with her musician husband and their three children.  She loves cats, mysteries, history, and tea, and when she’s not writing, you’ll find her involved with Historic Nashville and volunteering for the Land Trust for Tennessee’s Glen Leven Farm.
