>Welcome to the cyber-home of Carolyn J. Rose and Mike Nettleton, our pets, and our writing projects.
Our mysteries are set on the Oregon Coast (An Uncertain Refuge, Sea of Regret, Drum Warrior), New York’s Catskill Mountains (Hemlock Lake, Through a Yellow Wood), Arkansas (A place of Forgetting), Albuquerque, New Mexico (The Shotgun Kiss), and the fictional town of Reckless River, Washington (No Substitute for Murder and coming in June, 2013, No Substitute for Money).
We’ve written as a team and individually. Carolyn’s currently on a roll with a string of successes on Kindle and Nook and Mike is learning the art of screenwriting.
We recently reworked and retitled the Fantasy novel The Hermit of Humbug Mountain. It’s now called Drum Warrior but is still based on a story that sprang from Mike’s childhood. Lost (or at least he thought he was) on the densely forested slopes of Humbug Mountain on the Southern Oregon coast. From that childhood experience, came a tale of evil ogres and trolls, an armless drummer, a woman given up for dead, and two unlikely teenagers assigned the daunting chore of saving the world. Drum Warrior is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo.
In the months to come we plan to revise and self-publish a number of books formerly with small presses. Watch for their covers on our home page.
We continue to support writers’ events at Cover to Cover Books where we started writers’ mixers in 2006 as a way to bring writers together to find support and critique group members. We also put on mini-workshops at libraries, book fairs and pretty much anyone who asks who fits into our schedule. (Click the Workshops tab on our home page.)
