She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean--and she's got an active imagination.

Cozy Mysteries With a True Italian Twist!

National Bestselling author Maria Grazia Swan was born in Italy, but this rolling stone has definitely gathered no moss. She lived in Belgium, France, Germany, in beautiful Orange County, California where she raised her family, and is currently at home in Phoenix, Arizona--but stay tuned for weekly updates of Where in the World is Maria Grazia Swan?

As a young girl, her vivid imagination predestined her to be a writer. She won her first literary award at the age of fourteen while living in Belgium. As a young woman Maria returned to Italy to design for--ooh-la-la--haute couture. Once in the U.S. and after years of concentrating on family, she tackled real estate. These days her time is devoted to her deepest passions: writing and helping people find happiness. 

Maria loves travel, opera, good books, hiking, and intelligent movies (if she can find one, that is). When asked about her idea of a perfect evening, she favors stimulating conversation, Northern Italian food and perfectly chilled Prosecco--but then, who doesn't? 

Maria has written short stories for anthologies, articles for high profile magazines and numerous blogs tackling love and life.

Meet Sherri Bryan and the Charlotte Denver Cozy Mystery Series!

When I was growing up, I carried a book everywhere I went. Enid Blyton and Roald Dahl were my favourites. 

Long story short, years later and keen for a new adventure, I moved to Spain to open a marina-front café barwhich was the inspiration for the series. 
It was fabulous place to work, overlooking the sea and the boats, but with no experience of running a café, and very limited Spanish, it was the most challenging, most terrifying, but absolutely the most brilliant thing I've ever done...and the hardest I've ever worked! 

In 2015, I read my first cozy mystery and knew I'd found a genre I loved to read, and wanted to write in. My first book, 'Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse', followed a few months later in May of the same year and the eighth book in that series is due for publication in July 2017. A new series with a celestial theme will follow shortly… 

When I’m not scribbling down ideas for new stories, or tapping away on my laptop, you’ll most likely find me with my nose in a book (I read everything from mysteries and romance to biographies and cookbooks), rustling up something experimental in the kitchen, or out with my gorgeous rescue dog, George, who has me well and truly wrapped around his little paw. 
Sherri's first book in the series, 'Tapas, Carrot Cake and a Corpse', is free to download for Kindle at mybook.to/CharlotteDenver1 or for iBooks, Nook and Kobo at https://books2read.com/u/319E73. 

 If you'd like to take advantage of the discounted 99c/99p launch prices AND get early notification of new releases, launch day discounts and other book-related newsplease sign up to Sherri's readers' list at http://www.sherribryan.com!

Meet Anna Celeste Burke and the Georgie Shaw Mysteries!

An award-winning and USA Today Best-selling author, Anna enjoys snooping into life's mysteries with fun, fiction, & food—California style! Her books include the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series set in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs, the Corsario Cove Cozy Mystery series set on California’s Central Coast, and The Georgie Shaw Cozy Mystery series set in Orange County, California--the OC. 


I'd love to have you meet Georgie Shaw, Detective Jack Wheeler, Miles, and Ella. This series is set against the backdrop of Marvelous Marley World, an entertainment empire built on the success of a cartoon cat. The idea of Marvelous Marley World and some of what goes on there is loosely based on my experience as a chef at Walt Disney World. No murders while I "worked for the mouse" at the "mouse factory" as we referred to the "happiest place on earth," but there was plenty of mayhem. Lots of interesting, quirky characters, too. Like Disney, Marvelous Marley World isn't always so marvelous! Always intriguing and a unique setting for a cozy mystery series. 


I hope you'll enjoy the fun, food, cats, and second chance romance that come with the murder, mayhem, and mystery in this series. 


Like all the books in this series, the box set is included in Kindle Unlimited so it will be free to KU subscribers!
