Lissa Marie Redmond…
Recommend this one to anyone who loves courtroom dramas where lawyers tear into witnesses like pit bulls. And to anyone hot for a police procedural where tired cops make mistakes but slowly, relentlessly―and with morbid humor―get the job done. Redmond delivers both in one package. . . .The real attraction here is a keyhole view into a world that turns our expectations upside down―a world where a bullying, quasi-fascist cop can be the only one with a handle on reality. Keep your eyes on Redmond, a retired cop who knows how to write.”―Booklist
“Redmond, a recently retired Buffalo PD homicide detective, keeps everything moving nicely in this well-constructed crime novel.”―Publishers Weekly
“An excellent police procedural combined with a psychological thriller.”―Kirkus Reviews
“A Cold Day in Hell is a fine first novel and Lauren Riley is cool new addition to the world of PI and cop protagonists. A retired detective, Lissa Marie Redmond gives it to the reader without the sugarcoating and lifts the veil off how the system really works … or doesn’t.”―Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author of What You Break
“Ex-cop Lissa Redmond has a sure hand with police procedure, which should be no surprise. The joy of A Cold Day in Hell comes from her equally sure hand with storytelling. This is a welcome new voice on the crime scene.”―SJ Rozan, bestselling author of Ghost Hero

James W. Peercy…
James William Peercy spent his early years in California, fifteen minutes from Disneyland. As to the effect of this experience, we can only guess, but imagination seems to make the top of the list. During his later years in Texas, he obtained a BA in Computer Science with a minor in Math. Although analytical, the creative side has to find a way out. To ease the pain, he designs websites, programs code, takes photographs, and writes.
“The desire to write first over took me in middle school after reading ‘The Red Planet’ by Robert A. Heinlein.” From that point on, he could not get enough. As the ideas filled his head, James had to find a way to let them out.
Whether it is scifi, fantasy, mystery, or poetry, you’ll see all kinds from this author. Relationships are the keys to all stories. As any good writer will tell you, “There are no new stories, only different details in the telling.” In 2017, he and Jacqueline E. Smith won the New Apple Solo Medalist Award for poetry with Within the Heart of Silence.
In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, “May the hair on your toes never fall out!”
