I was perusing Louise Crawford's website (www.louisecrawfordbooks.com) to gather info to comprise an intro for her blog entry, but found that I couldn't tell you about her any better than is stated there:
"Louise Crawford holds an M.A. in Psychology – handy in developing characters and their murderous motivations. She started writing 16 years ago and is an award-winning author of over 14 books. For fans of her Blaize/Zoloski mysteries featuring psychologist Blaize McCue and Detective Stephanos Zoloski, her fourth in the series, Blaize of Trouble, will be out soon.
One of the things she enjoys most about her job is the research – which recently included a helicopter ride in a Robinson-22. Beverly Hills Voodoo (2001), featuring Detectives Murry and Kidman – and a touch of the supernatural – was the first book in her current suspense series. The sequel, Fortune Cookie Karma followed in 2005 and, Bad Moon Rising, the third book in the series was recently released by Five Star Mysteries. Three of her books were nominated for the Romantic Times Magazine Reviewers Choice award for Best Mystery. Two have been on the publisher’s bestseller list. Her books have won the Eppie for Best Mystery and been a finalist for Best Mystery three times."
Here is what the lovely lady had to say about her recent appearance at CalExpo Author's Inviational:
While everyone outside was coming inside Building A to cool off, I and my fellow authors were shivering like we were in Alaska, trying to stay warm! Signing copies of my books, BAD MOON RISING, and BORN IN BLOOD, both suspense, did warm up my fingers, but it took HOT coffee to thaw out the rest of me! Many thanks to everyone who stopped by and bought a copy or picked up a postcard so they could buy the Kindle or Nook version. Happy reading to you all! If you missed me, I will be out there again next Friday and Saturday, July 27 and 28. As a fellow author said, "Everyone should have one of your books!"
