About Us

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 and The Devil’s Tombstone), Arkansas (A place of Forgetting), Albuquerque, New Mexico (The Shotgun Kiss), and the fictional town of Reckless River, Washington (No Substitute for Murder, No Substitute for Money and No Substitute for Maturity).

Recently we assembled short stories we’ve written over the years featuring quirky characters and situations. It’s aptly titled Sucker Punches. Carolyn’s at work on the fourth of her “Subbing isn’t for Sissies” series chronicling the adventures (and misadventures) of a substitute high school teacher. We’ve written as a team and individually. Carolyn continues to sell steadily through Kindle, Nook, Smash Words and Kobo. Mike is learning the art of screenwriting and crafting scripts for the stage.

Along with writing, we’re proactive about supporting local (and some no-so-local) writers. We 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.) For more information us, our personal appearances, or some of our humorous, suspenseful, and poignant projects (yes, that’s shameless self-promotion), please get in touch with us through the contact tab on the home page of this website.
