Keeping Tabs on Teensy
That Teensy! Just when you think she’s settle down in her life and spending her days writing, she up and starts a new project. Like this creative writing class she’s teaching. Of course, it’s right up her alley. She’s such a dynamic personality and able to bring her enthusiasm for the written word to each session. I think anyone who takes her class is very lucky.
Of course, she does have her own unique writing style. I remember when we first met, last summer when she’d moved back to Ashton Corners after being away for so long. Her first book had just been published and when asked to describe it, she called it a contemporary ‘Gone With the Wind’. Without the war, of course, but set in the South and seething. Think hot and steamy. That’s what she substituted.
Now, you’ve got to know Teensy Coldicutt to appreciate this totally. Somewhere in her seventies, a full-bodied lady with a passion for fashion, and candid as the day is long. We all love her to pieces and are especially thankful that she’s come back into her good friend Molly Mathews’s life. And, because of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society, our lives also.
So, Teensy’s newest book is another romance but she’s hinting at a mystery lying in its depths. I guess we’ll just have to wait for it to come out. Another book launch! We’re getting good at hosting all things bookish. I can hardly wait. And also, I wonder what her next project will be.
What’s your next project? Are you a writer, a quilter, an artist, a bridge fanatic? What’s your passion?
Look for A KILLER READ, (#2 on the Barnes and Noble Mystery Bestseller List and an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Mystery), READ AND BURIED, COVER STORY, and BOOK FAIR AND FOUL on-line or at your favorite bookstore.
Book #5, LAW AND AUTHOR, now available.
