My Spotlighted Author today is the mysterious Lindy Spencer...I really want to dress up as Columbo...or Inspecter Clousea...but I'm probably more like Inspector Gadget!
Lindy Spencer currently lives in Oklahoma with her superhero family - Amazing Husband and Super Smart Dog. Her children have grown and flown, and are currently working on populating their own branches of the family tree.
When Lindy isn't writing she enjoys spending time reading, riding motorcycles, and shooting things with a Canon. Currently she is working on her next novel as well as several other short stories, and she plans to publish a compilation of the collection of photographs she took and were recently on exhibition at the Oklahoma Historic Route 66 Museum.
Her first novel, The Boomerang Effect, is available in print and for e-readers on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Lindy loves to visit with her fans and can be found at www.facebook.com/LindySpencer.Author
I feel like a detective on this interview...you know like Inspector Clousea...fake mustache...big magnifying glass and an awful French accent...I love mysteries....
How do you balance your writing with your real world responsibilities?
I agree with the piracy thing...it's heartbreaking when you've worked so hard, put you heart and soul into your story to see it on a piracy website. It's not like we charge a fortune for the months of sweat and tears and most times our books cost less than a (deep breath) skinny expresson mochachino latte with extra cream and sprinkles! Anyhows lets have a looksy at her book...
Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can end your life - or worse, postpone it indefinitely.
In Aspen Grove, Oklahoma, fifteen-year-old Katy had everything going for her, until an innocent decision to walk home from school set the karmic wheels in motion. Katy suffered a brutal attack, leaving her comatose. The legal system failed to convict the men responsible for this heinous crime - instead found them not guilty.
They’ve gotten away with it, or so it seems. Darnell and Jerome, then boys, now men, continue on with their lives; Bruce Hanson, the attorney tasked with convicting the two attackers, brushes off his loss and continues his climb up the legal ladder; Office Webster, the policeman who responded to the call for help, the man who destroyed evidence, forgets all about his part in the crime and moves forward in his lazy life; all of this while Katy lies in a hospital bed, still comatose, her life postponed, her loved ones outside of that room hoping and waiting.
Several years go by, bringing us to now. Something, or someone, has found a way to bring these individuals to justice; the perfect murder has been created and is being unleashed on the individuals responsible for Katy's situation.
Are they accidents? Could it be coincidence? Perhaps long-awaited payback in the form of the perfect murder? Revenge is a dish best served cold... and karma is a well-thrown boomerang.
I love mysteries...whoops my TBR has another addition! So here's where everyone else can grab a copy...
