Delivering the TruthCover

As Edith Maxwell, I write the historical Quaker Midwife Mysteries, too. Delivering the Truth released from Midnight Ink in April.  We went on an historical book launch walking tour – and you can take the tour yourself on YouTube!

GrilledAmazoncoverI’m also Maddie Day, and I write the Country Store Mysteries, also from Kensington. Grilled for Murder released in May, 2016, including in audio, to rave reviews.

Exciting news! Maddie Day has a signed three-book contract with Kensington Publishing for a new cozy foodie mystery series! The Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries will debut with Murder on Cape Cod. Mackenzie Almeida runs a bicycle repair and rental shop in a fictional Cape Cod village, and also hosts a weekly cozy mystery book group. The gang discusses the latest fictional murder – and sometimes a real one, too.


And just to keep things interesting, I’m Tace Baker, as well, writing the Lauren Rousseau Mysteries from Barking Rain Press. Bluffing is Murder came out in November, 2014.


As Edith Maxwell I also write Agatha-nominated and award-winning short crime fiction.

Welcome to my world of cozy and historicalmysteries. I hope you’ll visit my group blog, where I post with five other New England cozy mystery author-friends every week day over at WickedCozyAuthors.com. We were featured in the Boston Globe this spring! My latest author newsletter is here.
