Australian/Andorra-based Crime and Mystery Author Patricia W Grey
Exciting news. My 2nd book of short stories Kissed by a Stranger, is now available from Amazon. The title refers to a quote from Stephen King that ...a short story is like a kiss from a stranger. The characters enter your life for a brief, pivotal moment in time. I hope you enjoy their stories, which were inspired by my life on 3 continents- Australia, Europe and the U.S.A.
The idea for my police procedural Taboo came to me after an incident in Perth. A young guy knocked on the door of our unit to sell me membership in a DVD rental. When I said "No - I rarely live here" he asked for a glass of water. It was a hellish hot day. I said yes, turned and without locking the door, went to get him a glass - only to find him pressed against my back in the kitchen. Luckily. Very luckily, my dog was asleep under the table. She went for the guy's crotch! But, imagine what could have happened... Buy the book and find out!
In Death Has A Thousand Doors the disappearance of a beneficiary before the windup of a multi-million-dollar trust, is hard to understand in peaceful Andorra - the unknown pocket handkerchief country in the Pyrenees.
