Introducing Elizabeth “Biz” Adams


Coming July 31!

By Elizabeth “Biz” Adams
From Peg Cochran’s Murder, She Reported Series

Hello!  It’s lovely to meet you.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I have a younger sister Rose and a younger brother James.  James is at Yale right now.    
I  recently graduated from Wellesley College and am now back home living with my parents in our Madison Avenue apartment.  The country is coming out of the Depression and New York City in 1938 is an exciting place to be!


Unfortunately my mother’s expectations are for me to settle down and join the usual social whirl of my class—lunches, charity events, dinner parties.  And of course all that would be in aid of my finding a suitable husband—someone with a good name and a sizeable bank account.

I became quite passionate about photography when I was in college and was able to study with my roommate’s aunt—a well-known photographer.  I couldn’t bear the thought sitting at home planning tea parties so I joined the staff of the Daily Trumpet.  I’m just a girl Friday, but when an opportunity arises, I plan to work my way up to becoming a crime photographer.

It all happened sooner than I expected when Ralph Kaminsky, a veteran crime reporter, took me along on an assignment to photograph the debutante ball at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.  Who knew we’d find ourselves at the scene of a murder?

If you could do/be anything, what would it be?

AND NOW FOR OUR SUMMER #GIVEAWAY!

I'm giving away a copy of Bought the Farm, #3 in my Farmer's Daughter series, to one person who comments below.  US only please.

  15. Your new book looks amazing. The cover hooked me! I used to want to own a used book store. In my age of greater wisdom, I realize that bookstore owners work very hard and times are difficult for them...I will consider another idea...maybe write a cozy? Thanks for a chance to win one of your excellent cozies. Lldawnjm (at)gmail (dot) com

  22. Actually, I'm very happy with what I am - wife and homemaker. I use to think I'd love to make a career our of my baking but the older I get the more I realize that it would then be a "job" and not just fun with someone telling me what to bake and when. I would love to be a better photographer since I do have a great fondness for that. Basically, at my age, I'm more into enjoying life than thinking about having a job. :)

    Thank you for the wonderful chance to win a copy of "Bought the Farm". I would love the opportunity to read it!

  23. I would open a coffee/tea café/bookstore that would allow pets. Of course, food prep would have to be strictly pet-free per food safety regulations.

    Thank you for the chance at this giveaway. I love cozy mysteries and Bought the Farm sounds great!
