I am a native Californian living in Mississippi. I love writing and have written poetry, short stories and song lyrics from the time that I first learned to write. My most recent short stories are featured in the anthology, Memories and Dreams, published by The Fine Arts Center in Hot Springs, AR. I also love to cook and have developed many original recipes. Recently, I coupled one of my favorite recipes with a short story called, Jen’s Spicy Crawfish Bisque which appears in It’s All About Food with a Mississippi Twist. My first novel was accepted for publication and scheduled for release sometime before Labor Day 2011. I have written several articles for the Jackson Literature Examiner. I am also an event’s coordinator for the Mississippi chapter of Imagicopter, an organization of authors and artists who promote their own publications, while lending a hand to other writers and artists. I belong to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Gulf Coast Writers Association (GCWA), The Mississippi Writers Guild (MWG), as well as The Arts Council of Clinton, The Clinton Ink-Slingers Writing Group and the JavaInk Jotters.

Novelist Stephanie Osborn
My words: The Case of the Displaced Detective is a single story in two volumes — I simply found it impossible to tell the story properly in one book. I’ve been a huge Holmes fan since childhood, and when the “plot bunny” for this story bit, it bit HARD. I HAD to write it! The first draft came spewing from my fingers into my laptop, 215,000 words in two months! That’s like one person holding a wide-open fire hose. I couldn’t get it set down fast enough! I’m so excited about this story, which is the first of a series where Holmes and Chadwick tackle technological and scientific based mysteries. There are two more in the editing pipeline, and three more besides that in work, and I’ve got ideas for more besides! I love these characters and this world — I could write these books for the rest of my life!
