A book club featuring books for smart women.
Author of the Ghost Duster series and the Bodies of Evidence series
I discovered your Ghost Dusters Mystery series a few years ago and loved every one of them. Now you’re working on a new mystery series, Bodies of Evidence, and I love that also. Both have a strong paranormal element, but their landscapes are unique and so very different. Can you tell us a bit about both and what made you choose these two themes?
In my Ghost Dusters series, the protagonist can see the dead, and she also runs a crime scene cleanup company. In my Bodies of Evidence series, my heroine uses dowsing rods to locate bodies. In both series, the theme is ordinary women with extraordinary abilities overcoming their fears to help others. Although the paranormal element is strong, I like to think that the strong nature of the protagonist is the most relatable and compelling theme.
Every reader has favorite authors, ones they consider their ‘go to’ authors. For example, I always read Robert Crais and the late Robert B. Parker. Who are your go-to authors, and what do you like about them? That being said, do you ever take a reading break because you’re constantly dealing with words all day?
There are so many authors that I love! Some of the authors on my automatic buy list are Allison Brennan, Tana French, and Louise Penny. I sometimes take a vacation from working, but I rarely take a break from reading. Curling up with a good book at night is one of the best feelings in the world!
What is your writing Kryptonite?
Travel. I have a passionate love for seeing the world, and it’s not always practical to bring my laptop along; like when I was on safari in Africa a few months ago. When I’m not traveling, I’m drawn to all the travel sites online.
Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?
Well, that happened without my planning! I’ve always written under Wendy Roberts which, of course, was my actual name. However, when I divorced a number of years ago, I returned to my maiden name (Doell), and yet I continue to write under Roberts. There are a number of valid reasons an author might choose to use a pseudonym.
You’re published by one of the big five publishers. How do you determine the stories you write? Is the publisher involved in storylines, or do you have full creative authority to decide?
Whenever I’m contracted within a series the publisher, of course, needs those books to follow the natural arc. That said, I have full authority to decide on how that plays out. Whenever I’m not contracted, I write whatever sticks in my head and won’t let go. I’ll fire off a new book to my wonderful agent (Melissa Jeglinski of the Knight Agency), and she sends it out into the world.
Do you think someone could be a writer if they don’t feel emotions strongly?
That’s a very interesting question. I think it would be possible, but it would make the creative process more difficult. When I read a story, I can tell when an author is emotionally invested in the outcome of her characters. I imagine it would be a lot like a musician just playing the notes without any passion.
Are you involved in any writing groups?
I’m a member of Mystery Writers of America and International Thriller Writers as well as some small Facebook writing groups. Some of my closest friends are other writers.
How did publishing your first book change your process of writing?
When I submitted my first book, Dating Can Be Deadly, an editor immediately asked for the full manuscript. I’d only written three chapters at the time of submission, so I banged off the rest of the book in a month. That was not something I’d recommend!
What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
Long before I was published, I attended the Surrey International Writers Conference annually. The workshops were invaluable, and the conference introduced me to agents, editors, and fellow writers. Also, paying my agent continues to be a great investment. In addition, I buy a new laptop every few years. I’m a bit superstitious about buying a new computer when I’m in the middle of writing the first draft of a story and earlier this year that bit me in the butt. My laptop died immediately after writing a large amount, and I paid big bucks to have a tech guy retrieve those precious words. Well worth the cost but lesson learned!
What was an early experience where you learned that language had power?
As a child, I learned early on that when things weren’t great you could escape into books. Stories held a power to change my mood and even my outlook on life.
Do you subscribe to any writing magazines? If so, which, and do you suggest new writers do the same?
I don’t have monthly subscriptions, but I do regularly pickup Mystery Scene and Romantic Times. I think that new writers should read anything and everything they can, but they shouldn’t blow their budget.
What’s your favorite under-appreciated novel?
A Good Man is Hard to Find by Flannery O’Connor is a fabulous collection of short stories and a personal favorite.
How do you balance making demands on the reader with taking care of the reader?
Before I was published an editor once told me that a story is a promise and it’s up to the writer to deliver. I try my best to take the reader along on the journey of discovering whodunnit and hope that when I deliver the truth, they find it both believable and plausible.
Do you base your characters on any real people you know?
My characters are usually an accumulation of everyone I’ve ever met. Sometimes, though, I meet someone or observe someone’s conduct that strikes a chord, and I find myself modeling a character after their behavior. This is more true for villains.
How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have?
Oh many! When I sold my first novel, I’d already written five or six complete stories. In 2015 and 2016 alone I wrote a couple of books that probably won’t ever see publication. I may choose to rewrite them one day but the way they stand now, they won’t see publication.
What does literary success look like to you?
Emails from readers saying they loved a book is the ultimate success. Also, continuing to find publishers wanting my work.
What’s the best way to market your books?
I’ve yet to find the key to unlock that secret! I try to focus on all forms of social media and reach out to my reader list through emails. Do these things work? Sure. The very best marketing though is still word of mouth. If you love a book, tell your friends!
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
All of my books are written from the point of view from the main character and all my protagonists are female. There are strong male characters also in my books, but you see them through my heroine’s eyes. I try to give my main male characters at least one trait that makes them vulnerable and that helps me ‘get into their head.’
How long were you a part-time writer before you became a full-time one?
I was a stay at home mom taking my notebooks or Alphasmart Dana with me to write at baseball practices and dance classes for many years and, as my four kids grew and were able to drive themselves, I transitioned to spending more time writing.
How many hours a day do you write?
If I’m under deadline, I’ll start writing around seven in the morning and work until noon. I leave the afternoons for edits or research. If I’m not under deadline, I will write only if a fresh idea for a book is driving me. A few months ago I wasn’t under deadline but a story in my head was so compelling I was driven to finish it. At that time, I was easily putting in eight hours of writing a day.
What did you edit out of your latest book?”
In the second draft of my last book, I removed an entire character. She was a great character, but she wasn’t furthering the plot. I’ve saved her though, and she might reappear in another story.
Have you read anything that made you think differently about fiction?
I love to read books that challenge the way I think about everything!
How do you select the names of your characters?
I will often use a site like Random Name Generator and will just keep refreshing until a name shows up that reflects the nature of my character.
If you didn’t write, what would you do for work?
I would become the full-time stalker of my children! They are thrilled that I write instead.
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with bad or good ones?
I have been extremely blessed to have a large amount of good reviews. If I receive a bad review that’s constructive, I do try to give it some consideration. It’s impossible to be everyone’s cup of tea.
Do you hide any secrets in your books that only a few people will find?
Yes. I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.
What was your hardest scene to write?
Describing scenes of child abuse in A Grave Calling was extremely difficult. It was so important to the story to get it right, so I spent a lot of time on those scenes and, honestly, they took a lot out of me.
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
I’ve written a complete first draft in thirty days and also in a year. On average, I try to write a first draft in four months and let it rest a few weeks before completing it in the second draft.
I stalk your IG and see you love to travel. What’s your favorite place?
My favorite place is wherever I’m planning to go next! I thrill at the planning almost as much as the actual travel. My favorite place had to be the Giraffe Manor in Kenya. It was a bucket-list item and didn’t disappoint!
Where haven’t you gone that you’d love to go?
My goal is to see every continent in the world by the time I’m 60 years old. That only leaves me five more years to see South America, Antarctica, and Australia. I already have plans in the works for two of those places in the next couple of years.
If you could meet one famous (alive or deceased) author, whom would it be?
I’d love to meet poet, Maya Angelou. It would be a dream come true. I’m sure that one day when I leave this mortal realm, I will find her, buy her a cocktail and discuss words.
What are you working on right now?
I am working on a project but, unfortunately, I’m not at liberty to discuss it until my signature is on the actual contract. In the meantime, keep stalking me on social media, and you will find out!

About A Grave Calling
There had been no attempt to bury the dead girl, naked except for the white ribbon tied to her wrist.
Twenty-five-year-old Julie Hall has a unique ability: when she takes up a dowsing rod, she finds not water but bodies. To Julie, it's a curse, not a gift, and one she rarely uses—she prefers her quiet life in a trailer, with her grandfather and her dog for company. But when FBI agent Garrett Pierce shows up at her door seeking help with a case, she has no choice but to assist with their search.
Three girls are still missing. The killer is still out there. As bodies are discovered, and more girls disappear, the case becomes almost more than Julie can bear. And when the killer turns his sights toward her, even her growing relationship with the protective Agent Garrett may not be enough to save her.
A Grave Calling is available at Amazon and other online retailers

Riverstorm by Tess Thompson
Ten years ago, lawyers Grant Perry and Liz Teeny were very much in love, but their romance was halted after one of them made a regrettable mistake. After a big case throws them together again, they both realize they still have feelings for one another. When events in each of their lives bring them to River Valley, the small town works its magic, and Grant and Liz learn things about their pasts, their families— and what things each one of them wants for their futures.
Riverstorm is the fifth book in Tess Thompson’s River Valley Series. The author is true to form, and this book lives up to the high expectations set by the rest of the series. It is lovingly crafted with the warm mix of romance, heartbreak, mystery and family drama that has Thompson’s readers eager for each new installment.
Thirty-Something Girl by Lisa Gott
This is a bittersweet story of two people who have endured much heartache and turmoil in their lives, and what happens when their paths eventually cross. It’s a tale that beautifully illustrates the idea that no matter how difficult one’s life has been, the past is the past, and the future can still hold a great abundance of both love and goodness. It’s about making the conscious decision to live a happy life.
There was so much in this book that struck at personal chords for me. While learning about all that both Hope and Sam had gone through, though my personal experiences differ somewhat, I could feel the pain and desolation they carried with them. I can’t imagine any reader not being able to relate to these characters in some way. As I read and learned more about each of the characters’ pasts, how they dealt with their here and now, and what they decided to do about their futures, I felt a strange mix of both frustration and compassion for them. They are both so painfully human, and I felt each one of their stories deeply.
Lisa Gott writes from the heart. Her style is genuine, her words emotional and lovely. I was touched by this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
Jailbird by Heather Huffman
The first line of this novel made it a hard one to resist. “Of all the things I dreamed of being when I grew up, a convicted felon certainly wasn’t one of them.” This began a chapter that is scattered with so many bits of foreshadowing, I found that I couldn’t help but pick up each shiny piece with an increasing anticipation for the next.
One of the things I enjoyed most about Heather Huffman’s writing style was that she didn’t explain everything in minute detail. This was a surprise for me. At first I wanted a more thorough description of the storyline, but as I read, I realized that the author was creating a visual picture of her tale for me in a way I never expected. I was shown the events that made up Neena’s life. I understood how her past affected her, and there was no doubt just how much trepidation she felt about her future. What I found so interesting was what wasn’t written into the story—those intimate details Neena didn’t express about the things that had happened to her— spoke just as loudly as the words that were spelled out on the page. The more I read, the more I felt like the style in which the story was being told was much like Neena herself; open but guarded, emotional but hesitant.
Jailbird is at times light-hearted and sweet, but it’s dark and sad as well. While Neena’s story is a difficult one, it is impossible not to become attached to this brave and resourceful heroine. Huffman has created very genuine characters in this novel. She reminds readers with this story that bad things sometimes happen to good people, but that we all have the ability and the strength to rise above them, and that we can live the kinds of lives we all want most.
An excerpt from Carolyn Ridder Aspenson’s upcoming book Flying by the Seat of My Mom Jeans
My mother was one of five children from an Italian family, and I can’t say for sure, but I’m ninety-nine positive most of my extended family ate like wild animals, gorillas, to be exact.
We’d often make the drive from Indianapolis, Indiana to Chicago Heights, Illinois for regular Sunday dinners at Grandma and Grandpa’s house with my aunts, uncles, and cousins. After everyone finished eating, the dining room resembled an elementary school lunchroom or a colossal college cafeteria food fight. Either way, I’m sure you get the picture. Spaghetti stuck on the walls, meatballs rolled under the table, gravy (yes, gravy, not sauce) plastered on the buffet, and bread splayed across the table like it had died a slow, torturous death. The result of our dinners wasn’t for lack of manners; my family was just too busy focusing on more important things, like which baseball team was better, the Cubs or the White Sox.
I’d enjoyed the verbal battle too much to notice the food fly, but my father went into full-on panic attack mode from it. Preferring the Indy 500 over baseball anyway, he’d politely and swiftly eat his meal and then quietly retreat upstairs for a nap until my mother finished her clean up duties and could be torn away without too much of a fight. My father grew up in a small, reserved family where no one spit food while speaking.
My first date with Jack was December 7, 1997. I met Erika and Morgan shortly after that at his restaurant of choice, Hooters.
As a child, I never quite understood my father’s push for proper table etiquette, but that first meeting at Hooters…that brought the matter front and center. And by front and center, I mean I wiped it from my face, my clothes, and even picked it out of my hair.
You know how some people can’t handle the sound of nails on a chalkboard? The moment the girls stuffed their greasy Buffalo wings and French fries into their babbling little mouths, their eating habits instantly became my nails scratching down a chalkboard.
For the next several years of my life.
French fry and wing parts spewed onto the table like a spit wad contest. Pieces sailed across it and onto my sweater. I’m sure I winced. I’m confident I snarled. I know I imagined myself jumping over the table and grabbing the offensive food from their wing sauce stained mouths, lecturing them on proper eating etiquette and educating them into well-mannered young ladies, all in a matter of seconds.
A girl can dream, right?
I waited for Jack to say something, anything, to make them keep their chewed slop where it belonged, but he didn’t, so I took it upon myself to explain how a lady should eat.
“Erika, you should chew with your mouth closed honey, it’s not ladylike to let everyone see your food like that.”
She pursed her lips, and her bushy eyebrows bunched together. “But I’m not a lady. I’m a little girl.”
“No, not yet, but one day you will be, so you should probably practice now, don’t you think?”
She shook her head. “Nope. I don’t wanna.” As she spoke, a piece of her chicken drumstick flew from her mouth and landed in my salad.
Jack glanced at me and chuckled. I wondered if I’d go out with him again. Probably not, I thought.
Morgan spoke, and when she did, I nearly jumped out of my seat and ran to the door. She’d said a few things before, but her voice had this way of sneaking up on you, and based on her look, it was completely false advertising. For a tot the size of a miniature garden gnome (she barely surpassed one after puberty) the child’s voice packed a punch—think the demon in The Exorcist—but her words made no sense. The raspy voice bellowing from her pint-sized body shook the table and silenced the place.
Straight out silenced a Hooters restaurant full of sports-watching (and booty/boob admiring) men.
“I’m (inaudible) a la-(inaudible) sod (inaudible),” she said.
I glanced at Jack, my mouth hanging open in utter confusion. “What did she just say?”
He shrugged, because really what else could he do? She spoke in three-year-old unintelligible chatter.
Erika interpreted Morgan’s sentence for us. “She said she’s gonna be a lady someday, too, and can we have ice cream for dessert?”
Jack agreed to ice cream for dessert, and I firmly believed he’d just been scammed. I didn’t give up though, because I was a trooper, and I figured a bribe would work. Oh, the naivety of the inexperienced.
“Ice cream’s my treat, but only if you eat the rest of your dinner without putting your elbows on the table, and if you keep your mouths closed while you chew. I know you’re not ladies yet, but you really should practice this kind of stuff for when you are.”
Morgan’s mouth warped into a frown, and Erika’s took on a snarl-like shape. She still has it today, and it’s commonly called her biatch look.
“Okay,” Erika said, though clearly, she wasn’t happy.
“Ma(inaudible),” Morgan said.
“She said okay, too,” Erika said for her.
I swiped my hands and puffed out my chest, sure of my success. I nailed it, and I hadn’t even reeled in the husband, though hadn’t yet come to mind. Step-mommying would be a no-brainer for me, obviously.
They spent the next hour spitting food at me. I don’t think they swallowed a bite. They tossed it onto the floor and played with it like Play-Doh. I wanted to barf on my salad, but alas, I had those manners my dad made sure I’d learned.
When we left and they wanted their ice cream, I explained that they didn’t do as I’d told, so ice cream wasn’t an option.
Oh, how inexperienced with children I was.
Once Jack was able to tie them down and duct tape their crying, screaming mouths (figuratively speaking, of course) he drove straight to the grocery store and purchased a gallon of vanilla ice cream to stuff their angry little pie holes just to stop my brain from pounding out of my head.
I spent the next morning on the phone apologizing to my parents for being a child.
They spent the entire conversations laughing at me.
Carolyn Ridder Aspenson is an author of women’s mystery novels. She grew up in Indianapolis and the Northwest Chicago suburbs but grew tired of the cold and snow, and now lives in the Atlanta suburbs with her husband, two cats, and two dogs. Now that she’s an official empty nester, she’s able to spend more time focused on the things she loves again: writing, reading, not arithmetic, though it would fit the theme of the sentence, and health and wellness. Carolyn’s background in media and journalism has given her an opportunity to discover great authors and exciting books in a variety of genres.
Finally, a book about a real woman. A woman that is damaged but resilient, insecure, but comfortable in her skin.
Meet Julie Hall, or if you’d prefer her real name, Delma Arensault. Personally, I’d go with Julie Hall, too.
Julie is a twenty-five-year-old woman, raised by her grandparents in a small town. She suffered horrific abuse by her grandmother, and if not for the love of her grandfather, would very likely not be the woman she is today.
Julie isn’t only damaged, she’s special. Julie has a gift, one that’s both a blessing and a curse, yet one she owns. She just would prefer to keep it secret.
She finds dead bodies with her dowsing rods.
When FBI Agent Garrett Pierce, filled with a large suitcase full of baggage himself, asks for help on a tough case, Julie decides to help. That help causes a rift with a friend and goes public, and that is exactly what Julie wanted to avoid.
Suddenly Julie is the center of a bull’s eye, from both the media and the killer.
There is so much about this book I love. I love the realistic characters, their raw emotions, their dirty, messy realities. I love the chemistry between the leads, and the feeling of history Roberts plays into the mix with the surrounding characters.
I love that Roberts wrote a book so different than her Ghost Dusters series, which I also love.
A Grave Calling (Bodies of Evidence series) is raw, gritty and even brutal at times. All of it speaks ‘real’ to me. The relationships, the dysfunctions, the swearing—life is messy, and when an author can portray that messiness in a well-crafted story, I’m immediately hooked.
I don’t want to spoil the book for anyone, but I will say the ending was superb. I’d say more, but it would ruin the book for you.
A Grave Calling is a definite read for anyone that loves a suspenseful mystery. It doesn’t fit the cozy genre because of the grit and intensity, but if you’re a cozy reader and don’t mind a few swear words and sex scenes you’ll love this book.
The book has a 78% five-star rating on Amazon (that includes my review), and the ebook is only $3.99.
You can purchase the book via Amazon here. Visit Wendy’s website here.
Make sure to check out her Ghost Dusters series while you’re at it!
~ Review by Carolyn Ridder Aspenson
Tess Thompson’s The Santa Trial is a sweet, romantic story for the holidays, and a beautiful addition to the Romancing the Holidays collection.
With her Christmas novella, The Santa Trial, Ms. Thompson has created an uplifting and heartwarming story abounding with sweetness and touched with a spark of holiday magic. Truly a beautiful story. If you’re searching for the Christmas spirit, this is where you’ll be sure to find it.
A.J. Aalto, author of the popular Marnie Baranuik paranormal fantasy series, offers her readers Closet Full of Bones, her first psychological thriller. I knew upon reading the first sentence—“She had the dump site picked out before she’d made up her mind to kill him.”—that I was in for an entertaining ride. I wasn’t disappointed. What an impressive debut.
This is an intricately woven tale with a cast of very interesting and well-developed characters. At the center of it is two sisters who have a lot of secrets between the two of them. As the narrative progresses, the reader is given more and more insight into their lives and their complicated relationship. The author layers this story incredibly well, and with every new detail she provides, with each new character she introduces, the plot thickens. I thought I had it figured out a few different times, but that’s just what A.J. Aalto wanted me to think. She still got me in the end.
No spoilers from this reader. This is one you’ll need to read on your own. I guarantee that it’s well worth it.
~ J.C. Wing

A fan of the ridiculous, she has a particular weak spot for smug a**holes, and enjoys poking narcissists right in the ego construct. Readers will find her work littered with dark creatures and flawed monsters. AJ cannot say no to a Snickers bar, and has been known to swallow her gum.
We Could Fall
By Kate Moschandreas
This is a tough book to review. I think the author, Kate Moschandreas, is a good writer, but I struggled with the concept of the story.
For the most part, I found the main character believable and realistic. I’m just not sure I liked her or that I was empathetic to her situation. She (Emmy) faced real world challenges in her marriage to Jack. Jack, though somewhat a villain, didn’t appear as realistic as I’d have liked, and the third in the triangle, Duncan, fit a stereotype for me. He reminded me of the popular high school guy who deep down was completely insecure and ran off to Hollywood after graduation because he thought being a star would fix whatever was broken inside, only it didn’t.
Emmy is a therapist, which is how she meets Duncan, of course, (because his insecure high school kid wasn't fixed). And the therapist/client thing is where I have issues with the storyline. I’m okay with suspending reality. Suspending reality is why I read. I love being taken away. Books are my Calgon. They’re my adventure, my relaxation, my different world. I’m even okay with scary, intense, extreme. I’m not okay with crossing ethical lines in a therapeutic relationship. It feels wrong to me. It feels icky. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t want to be a fly on that wall, and when I read, I sometimes imagine myself as a fly on the wall, or as the best friend of the main character. In We Could Fall, I’m not sure I could be Emmy’s best friend.
Ms. Moschandreas wants us to be empathetic to Emmy’s situation. She wants us to feel Emmy’s struggle, her push and pull of emotion, of feelings for Duncan. She wants us to understand that Emmy understands what’s happening, that she too, knows her actions are wrong, but that she simply can’t help herself.
She wants us to support Emmy’s relationship with Duncan, and I believe most readers have, and will, but I can’t.
I had a few other concerns regarding the story also.
One of my closest friends is a therapist. She schedules her appointments days, weeks, and sometimes months in advance. Emmy had openings for Duncan at the drop of a hat and didn't care about the amount of time she spent with him. While this is fiction and an escape from reality, it was too far-fetched even for me.
I feel the story was predictable and the ending familiar. If you read it, and you’re a fan of Dustin Hoffman, you’ll see what I mean.
As I said, there are many people who’ve read the story and loved it. It’s received a 4.2 rating on Amazon, with 120 reviews. 57% at 5 stars, 22% at 4 and 14% at 3. I fall into that 14% range. Let me know where you fall!
