✦✦ #CoverReveal Day!✦✦DIAL QR FOR MURDER by A.E.H. Veenman✦✦

I decided, long ago, back-room negotiations with
a nine iron and a pen, witness tampering, and
suppression of evidence weren’t for me. That’s
what was expected of an independent lawyer hired
by Louis Fernoza.
I wanted the corner office overlooking a
cityscape, the fine car and house, and the ability to
sleep at night with a clear conscience. I’d say I
achieved it all but not without a price.

Cozy Mystery Writer, A.E.H. Veenman

Guess who’s listed on her publisher’s website.. YAY!!

My passion for writing began with a hunger for books from fellow New Jerseyan Judy Blume, and Nancy Drew mysteries. And each Saturday, a side dish of The Hardy Boys whet 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).
