A Strange Twist of Fate by Debra Erfert-Book Blitz and Giveaway
While growing up, going to libraries felt like an adventure filled with mystery and wonder to Debra. The hushed tones invoked secrets, and the dusty, sometimes moldy scent of paper smelled like perfume. Leaving the library with just a single book never happened. Years later, her love of reading turned to passion for writing. Debra’s an award-winning artist who lives in southern Arizona where the average summer temperatures are truly hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.
grieving Anna is determined to find who murdered her husband. Hampered by
agonizing loneliness, her obsessive-compulsive mother, and her over-controlling
father, she defies convention and the law to investigate on her own. When she
runs up against a handsome police detective who’s determined to save Anna from
herself, she has to step up her rogue search for the killer before time, and
dwindling leads, runs out.
This book is a winner in the Kindle Scout
program and because I nominated it, I was so excited to get a free copy!!
have an intense fear of flying, bad enough I need medication to even walk
toward a plane.
have an unreasonable fear of heights. I’m pretty sure this has an impact on my
fear of flying.
have two polydactyl cats. What’s a polydactyl, you ask? They’re adorable
kitties with more than the normal amount of toes. Polly and Jack both have
thumbs on their front paws. They’re also known as Hemmingway cats. He had
a fascination with them. His home in the Florida Keys is a sanctuary for
a multiple-award winning fine artist specializing in portraits. I received a
drawing kit for Christmas when I was seven or eight years old, with a drawing
pad, pencils, one of those silly gum erasers, and an awesome book that had
step-by-step examples. I drew a little boy wearing a sombrero, and my mother
used the side of a pencil and shaded it, making it pop off the paper. I used
this memory in one of my books.
little known fact is one that my husband dislikes; I love bags—handbags, tote
bags, and messenger bags with sayings on them. I can’t pass by a display of
bags without Mike grabbing my elbow and hurrying me by them. The top shelf in
my closet is solely for bag and purse storage. I’m pathetic. It could be worse,
I suppose. I might have the same obsession for matching shoes with each bag.
married to a retired cop, who’s brother was a cop/latent identification expert,
and who’s dad was a cop for 34 years, and now we have a son who’s in law
enforcement. I'm never at a loss for experts when writing.
was a volunteer with our local police department for several years. I rode with
willing officers, went on calls with them. On occasion, I even helped in taking
report information and traffic control. They didn’t let me carry a gun,
although I did design their shirt patch.
8)Readers would be surprised to know ... that I
went to 13 different schools growing up. I actually went to 5 different high
schools. We moved a lot. This is probably why I’m such an introvert. So if you
see me at a conference or a book signing, say hi. You don’t know how much that
would mean to me.
9)The Best thing about writing is ... being
transported to another adventure. I’m a discovery writer. For the most part, I
follow my characters, and only gently guide them where I’d like them to go.
10)When I am not writing, I like to .... do
artwork and craft.
