Terri Ann Armstrong-- Morning Menace

Terri Ann Armstrong has written for years as an escape; it allowed her to get her feelings out. She won the Editor’s Award on (2000) and the Author of the Month on Muses and Reviews website in July 2006. But something happened along the way to writing her umpteenth poem; she discovered she could write a story. First, she had a little bit of knowledge to show in “Where do I Begin?” a book about self-acceptance. This was her second with her first “My Soul has Spoken” being a book of contemporary poetry. Her third book, “Husbandry 101” is a how-to book for men. After reading this book, a man told her, “Your book saved my relationship” and another said, “I agree with this book one hundred percent it was wonderful!” Now “Morning Menace” is her first shot at a murder mystery and the first in her Menacing Trilogy.

Product description:

“Morning Menace” is a murder mystery set on a farm in Vergennes, Vermont. Take a neurotic woman with an attention to detail and throw her in the middle of a murder investigation on a farm and you get more than horseplay. Starleen Maddox is thrust—unbeknownst to anyone—into the lives of the Grayson family as they try to figure out who’s stealing their farm supplies and killing their horses. Add to the mix feuding brothers, family honor and a rich horse breeder from Texas, and nothing is as it seems.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

A: I double-spaced it to make it easier on the eyes. I think because I took a regular, every day woman with problems of her own and tossed her right into the middle of a murder mystery without anyone even knowing she’s around. The ending is an attention grabber and it leaves it wide open for the next two that sew up the trilogy.

Q: Why did you go indie?

A: In all honesty, my agent asked me if I would be willing to give it a shot. I have three other books published, “My Soul has Spoken”, “Where do I Begin?” and “Husbandry 101”; they were all published in book form and haven’t done well. Trying something new certainly wouldn’t harm my work any. With e-readers being what’s in and the wave of the future—as far as I’m concerned—I had no where else to go, but up.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

A: This is hard, I have so many, but my reading has vastly opened up this past year. I loved Starr Gardinier Reina, Janet Evanovich, Alan Jacobson, Vicki Tyley, Susan Santangelo, Dean Koontz, John Saul, PJ Lawton, Vicki Petterson, Katia Lief and H. Terrell Griffin just to name a few.
