We discuss the various story lines for HUSH.
Kori Hosts a show called Back Porch Writer, the show for writers, about writers and writing. She recently passed 200 episodes of her show. We discuss what she loves about the show and the benefits of being able to speak with and learn from other authors.

From the Publisher:
Dezeray Jackson examines the cold case of a 13-year-old girl from Fremont, NE. As details of the case unfold, Dez is forced to confront her feelings about her sister’s unsolved murder, manage her relationship with former lover, Patrick Murphy, and diffuse the tension he’s creating with her current lover, Scott James. Things become more complicated when Dez begins receiving communication from a dead guy.
If you like Janet Evanovich, Marcia Muller or Sue Grafton, then you’ll love a series that combines all of their best traits into a smart, sassy, take no BS private investigator from the midwest, who has a penchant for weapons, scotch, fine wines, good-looking men, a great game of pool, and a Rottweiler named Godfrey.
