That Doesn't Happen in the Movies - Renee Pawlish

Renée Pawlish was born in California, but has lived most of her life in Colorado. When she's not hiking, cycling, or chasing ballplayers for autographs, she is writing mysteries and thrillers. She also has some middle grade novels waiting to be published.

Renée loves to travel and has visited numerous countries around the world. She has also spent many summer days at her parents' cabin in the hills outside of Boulder, which was the inspiration for the setting of Taylor Crossing in her novel Nephilim: Genesis of Evil.

Product Description:
This Doesn't Happen In The Movies is a rollicking ride.  Witty, intrepid Reed Ferguson, a wannabe private eye with a love of film noir and detective fiction, needs a paying client to prove his career choice to himself and his parents. The customer shows up at his downtown Denver office in the form of Amanda Ghering, a rich, attractive, but unhappily married woman. She hires Reed to find her missing husband, but it doesn't take long before Reed realizes that all is not as it seems. Follow Reed as he solves crimes akin to his cinematic hero, Humphrey Bogart.
What will e-readers like about your book?
This book is funny, think Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, and you will keep guessing until the last page.  You won't be able to put this book down.
Why did you go indie?
I kept getting told (especially with my book Nephilim Genesis of Evil) that the agent liked the writing, but didn't know if the book would sell.  I finally decided that I knew I had really good books so I would try self-publishing.  Nephilim sold well as a trade paperback, and now I'm jumping into the ebook world.
Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
