MOCHA, MOONLIGHT, AND MURDER
By MaryAnn Kempher
One night, 28-year-old, Katherine O’Brian, decides to walk to an
all-night diner. The only problem? It’s midnight, but Katherine lives in
Reno Nevada, a city that never sleeps; she can clearly see the diner’s
lights in the distance. It’s no big deal, until she passes someone’s
garage where a man is loading a dead body into the trunk of his car.
And now, she’s in trouble. She outran the man that night, and while
she has no idea who he is, he knows who she is. And he wants her dead.
As if attempts on her life weren’t stressful enough, Katherine has
gone back to college. She’s determined to finally finish her degree, but
her lab partner is driving her crazy. He’s hot, but annoying. And she’s
not sure which she wants more—a night of mad, passionate sex or a new
lab partner. It varies from day to day.
Will Katherine give in to her lust for her partner or will she give
in to her desire to throttle him? If she’s in the ground before
graduation, it won’t matter.
Not your typical romance, not your typical mystery.

A little of both. I start with an idea, then create one- or two-line scene prompts. Once I’ve written the beginning of the book, I write without an outline and just let the words flow.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Rats. As in, “Oh, rats.”

humor. She lives in the Tampa Florida area with her husband, two
