Roxie has set up house in my mind and is whispering to me. I’m at the making notes and letting things cook stage. Things I know so far:

  • Roxie is an attractive single woman in her early 60s. (Think she is a widow.)
  • She used to be a homicide detective (I think in Miami area) but is now a glass blower
  • Stories are set in the Blackwater area in Big Cypress County
  • Her love interest is Javier Dombroskie, a hot young police officer. How can Puerto Rican and Polish be anything but hot. 😉

roxie_type_cover_death_by_chocolate_02-webWorking title for the first story is “Death by Chocolate.” A dead body turns up in the freezer of the local ice cream shop and Roxie isn’t too impressed with the job the local PD is doing, which a problem because the lead detective is her cousin.
