My Feature in Sleuth Cafe Magazine


I’m incredibly happy to appear in the November/December 2016 issue of Sleuth Cafe Magazine.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with A. E. H. Veenman:


More from the Feature:

The most rewarding for me is simply having a polished, complete manuscript ready for publication. It means I’ve added another gem to my list of credits. That’s what’s important to me, creating, producing. I’m not the type to fret over sales—I do, however, hunger for reviews, folks! And when I do receive a review, favorable or not, it’s a resource I use when forging ahead on the next project.


And if you haven’t caught up with the Marjorie Gardens Mystery series, you can find them on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online outlets.

As mentioned in the magazine article, when I’m not busy writing the Digital Age Cozy™, I focus on music.

It seems only fitting that my two passions would unite! For my band, 3RD Season, I’ve started a blog dedicated to music with a segment based on my life as a musician in the alternative music genre:

REVIEW: “4.5/5 Doomsday Clocks” for Prepped for the Kill: A Marjorie Gardens Mystery By A.E.H. Veenman

Have a great weekend!


New Release: TEN DAYS IN TAHITI, a novella



TEN DAYS IN TAHITI, a novella by A. E. H. Veenman, Publisher: Exobia


 Sayonara, Sunny Maine. Helloo, Tahiti!

Isis Ferrelli returns from her nightmare stay at the Reebok Refuge Silo in “Prepped for the Kill” (Marjorie Gardens Mystery #2). She still has two weeks of vacation, which she promised to spend with Boston district attorney Jason Shahaman. It would be the perfect opportunity to learn if he meant what he wrote in his last email.

But their tropical getaway to Tahiti isn’t without a bit of mystery. The Black Goddess, an enormous pearl, is stolen from an island museum. The next night, a man breaks into their over-water bungalow but doesn’t steal anything.

A novella with lots of romance and a little caper, the solution to this puzzle concerns Isis’s picture of the missing pearl displayed behind glass.

✨✨Prepped for the Kill (Marjorie Gardens Mystery #2)✨✨

 Are you ready? Are you prepared?

Defense Attorney Isis Ferrelli wouldn’t have believed it if she weren’t holding the purchase agreement. Point Shirley residents Raymond Lockhart and Jedemiah Briggs are buying a survivalist condo designed for the digital age after doomsday.

The Reebok Refuge Silo is either a prepper’s paradise or a real estate scam. But when the decommissioned compound locks down after a power failure—a resident is poisoned, and another is found dead—it’s time to sound the SHTF alarm! Isis has a murder investigation…underground.

She must determine who has betrayed the colony. If she doesn’t, either she, Ray, or Jed could end up bugging-out in the afterlife.

 Chapter Thirty-Four

We were leaving the ark when Jasper hailed Edward over the radio, inquiring his whereabouts, and if he’d seen me. “We’re headed your direction now, along with Marco.”

Jasper’s voice warbled incoherently through the speaker.

“What was that?” Edward responded. “Come back.”

A few seconds later, we entered the tunnel and heard, “Does she have Ray’s sat phone?”

He faced me, and I tapped the laptop bag hanging from my shoulder.

“She sure does.”

“Good,” Jasper responded. “That’s our only hope of getting out now.”

I stopped beside Edward who froze and turned his head like rusty clockwork. His worried gaze relayed what I asked aloud. “What does that mean?”

“Jasper. Jasper? Come back.”

There was nothing but fuzz over the radio waves. We glanced at each other, shortly depleted of words and effort. Our silence presumed Teague had either remained belligerent about coming out, or had refused to shut off the jammer. Marco crept closer and placed his hand on Edward’s back, corroborating our third unspoken assumption.

We meandered, lethargically, but when the side door to the stairwell became a beacon of hope, we hastened toward it.

At the top of the landing, Edward decided he would proceed onward with the treatment. Before he departed, I removed my laptop bag, slipped the strap over his head and onto his shoulder, and he barreled upward for the library.

Author Sidebar: New Releases for Independence Day Marjorie Gardens Mystery by A. E. H. Veenman


My passion for writing began with a hunger for books from fellow New Jerseyan Judy Blume, and the Nancy Drew mysteries. And each Saturday, a side dish of The Hardy Boys whetted my appetite for hunting down clues and solving crime. Thus began a three-course menu for becoming a writer.

For hors d’oeuvres, I sampled women’s fiction for a bit with novels, All Waters Gathering (2008) and Carruther’s Place (2011). It wasn’t until I realized murder should really be on the menu when the main course became my thriller, Barbecue (2011).

And then the time came for dessert! Rich and sweet is the first Digital Age Cozy™ in the Marjorie Gardens Mystery seriesDial QR for Murder—and now it’s my pleasure to dole out a helping of Prepped for the Kill.

A delectable novella featuring Isis Ferrelli and Jason Shahaman follows in the first Marjorie Gardens Romance Mystery—Ten Days in Tahiti.
