Inside the Actor's Studio questions and there's a #BookGiveaway

Character:      Edward Morris
Series:           Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author:          Cheryl Hollon

Hi there, I’m Edward Morris, British owner of Queen's Head Pub on Central Avenue in St. Petersburg, Florida. It's right next door to Webb's Glass Shop. My girlfriend, Savannah Webb, submitted my name as the next business owner to be featured in our local neighborhood newspaper. The interview was fun, but at the same time a little terrifying. I've only been in the U.S.A for a little over a year, so I'm honored to have been chosen.

Here goes...

1. What is your favorite word? Love

2. What is your least favorite word? No

3. What turns you on? Excellent food, reading and art of any sort.

4. What turns you off? Bullies, injustice and soggy chips.

5. What sound or noise do you love? A kitten's first mewling.

6. What sound or noise do you hate? Dishes breaking on the Pub floor.

7. What is your favorite curse word? Bloody Hell.

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? An accountant. I love numbers.

9. What profession would you not like to do? An electrician.

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? Hello, Edward! So nice to see you.


Etched in Tears releases on November 28, 2017 and is available for pre-order everywhere. Meanwhile, you can read more about Savannah in Cracked to Death, the third book in the Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries, published by Kensington Books. Available at your favorite book vendor.

About Cracked to Death

When a treasure hunt leads to deadly plunder, it’s up to glass shop owner Savannah Webb and her trusty investigative posse to map out the true motives of a killer . . .

It's the dog days of summer in St. Petersburg, Florida, and Webb's Glass Shop proprietor Savannah Webb has an eco-friendly plan to help locals escape the heat--a recyclable bottle-crafting workshop taught by reticent store manager Amanda Blake. Turns out, the class is a bigger smash than expected, thanks in part to a pair of staggeringly old bottles brought in by snorkeler Martin Lane . . .

Linked to a storied pirate shipwreck, the relics definitely pique Savannah's interest. But intrigue turns to shock when Martin's lifeless body washes ashore the next morning, another glass artifact tucked in his dive bag. With cell phone records connecting Amanda to the drowning, Savannah must voyage through uncharted territory to exonerate her colleague and capture the twisted criminal behind Martin's death . . .
