Karen Vaughan lives in Peterborough, Ontario with her husband Jim and a cat named JJ who has plenty of catitude!

Karen started her literary journey in 2005 when she was home on sick leave and was tired of staring at the four walls or twiddling her thumbs. An idea for what would become “Dead On Arrival” popped in to her head and the feisty 30 something character Laura wouldn’t leave her alone til her story was written. Laura took a break from pestering the poor author so she could write a free-standing novel “Dead Comic Standing, Soon Laura was on the campaign to get Karen back to what would become the Laura and Gerry series. It now has 7 books, the latest being “Dead To Writes”.

Karen is the proud mom of one, step-mom of 4 grown kids, and 2 grandchildren. While not writing her fingers to the bone she hosts “Writer’s Round Table’ and an online radio show the second Tuesday of each month. She is also a partner with Viv Drewa in “Owl & Puzzycat Promotions” promoting independent authors. Karen is also a stand-up comedian who does her routine for local talent nights. She also loves reading, crafts and drawing.

Dead To Writes (Laura & Gerry Mystery Book 7) – by Karen Vaughan

Natalie Fisher committed suicide after an author stole her work and published it as her own.

Two years later, her best friend Terri is found dead in her hotel room.

Are the two deaths connected?

Laura Fitz and Detective Gibbons are on the case to trap a ruthless author trying to get away with murder!

Cold Coffee Review: Whether you have been following the Laura & Gerry Mystery series, or you are jumping into book seven in the series like myself, you will enjoy the read.

Sit back in your favorite beach chair, relax with lemonade in hand, and follow Laura Fitz and Detective Gibbons as they try to unravel the mystery of why Terri Carter is the second author to die. Best not to drink wine and eat dark chocolate while reading this very active, short, easy to read, suspenseful mystery. Keep reading and you will learn why….

Chapter one opens in November 2015 with Natalie Fisher frantically searching for her flash drive which holds her finished manuscript. If data has ever gone missing on your PC, you can relate to her dilemma. For an author who has just invested their life into a manuscript, traumatic is an understatement. This is the beginning of more than one mystery that will keep you turning the page. Question remains, is theft of a manuscript worth committing suicide over?

With a full cast of well-developed characters that could live in a home town near you, each with their part to play in this believable story line that could end up on the TV show ID Discovery. Laura’s eccentric neighbor Myrna might hold an important key in the case. Human emotions run deep surrounding envy, thief, suicide, sabotage, revenge and possible plausible deniability.

I invite you to join Detective Gibbons at the Convention Centre for the Writers’ Symposium. He is there to talk to the authors and follow through on some alibis. This will be a challenge as the authors are still in shock over “Such a brilliant candle in the literary world snuffed way too soon!”

I, Theodocia Mclean, endorse Dead To Writes (Laura & Gerry Mystery Book 7) by Karen Vaughan. I invite you the pick up the whole Laura & Gerry Mystery series for you reading enjoyment. I purchased this book in Kindle. This review was completed on June 23, 2018.
