Guest Blogger - Tracy Lawrence

I'm still hoping for more feedback on my earlier post on "What is Paranormal?" so today I've invited Tracy Lawrence from my novel HUNTER'S WAY to fill in. Here's Tracy...

Hi. I’m Tracy Lawrence. I’ve been Kiri Hunter’s best friend since we were kids. Since the rest of the world still knew her as Elizabeth. But she’s always been Kiri to me.

You know, names are funny. When I first started writing, I debated on a pseudonym. For one thing, I didn’t want people to think I got published just because of Daddy’s money; but more than that, I didn’t want to embarrass my parents. They’re pretty conservative and I write nice gruesome murder mysteries. You know, serial killers and steamy sex. Not quite in keeping with the family image. But Mummy loved them. Especially the steamy sex! Really! She gives copies of my books to her friends with the hot parts bookmarked. I think Daddy just skips over those parts. Daddy's little girl and all that.

And the “Daddy’s money” issue went away after my second best-seller. After all, most of the people buying my books don’t spend a lot of time reading the Society page, so they only know me as Tracy Lawrence the mystery writer. Which is what I should be doing now so I better get back to it. Thanks for letting me stop by.
