Do You Color?





Florrie Fox blogs for
The NEW Pen & Ink Mysteries
by Krista Davis








I'm new to Killer Characters, so I'm a little nervous. You see, I'm actually a private and quiet kind of person. My own mother has called me retiring! Unlike my younger sister, I'm not into sports, nightclubs, or hot trends. Frankly, I'd rather curl up at home with my cat, Peaches, and draw or read a mystery.

By day, I manage the Color Me Read bookstore in Washington, DC. By night, I draw adult coloring books! I'm always doodling new ideas. The bookstore is in the Georgetown section of Washington, which is very cool. It dates way back, so the buildings are gorgeous. Unfortunately, it's a very popular place to live, so I'm constantly on the hunt for an apartment. I'd love to be able to walk to work instead of driving an hour on the Interstate in bumper to bumper traffic. So far, though, everything in my price range has been dark, gloomy, and too depressing.

You might have heard of my boss, Professor John Maxwell. He's quite an adventurer and well known for his exotic travels. His family has been a fixture in Georgetown for generations. He's the most fascinating person I know. He's always pursuing some theory or mystery. He has an office on the third floor of the bookstore where he and his friends can often be found among amazing artifacts that he collected around the world. They peruse maps and have the most interesting discussions. 

The cover of the book about me can be colored! And the items around the center oval are the clues that I doodled. More about that next time. Do you like to color adult coloring books?
The covers of COLOR ME MURDER can be colored! It's now available for pre-order. Be on the lookout for upcoming giveaways.

COLOR ME MURDER (new series coming in February)
THE DIVA COOKS UP A STORM (coming in May)

  17. I can't wait for this book. I haven't started coloring although I bought artist grade colored pencils and a coloring book for my husband last Christmas. He has really taken to it and we've upgraded his pencils to professional colored pencils made in Europe!
