It’s not news to anyone who knows me that I recently co-wrote and published a mystery novel called On the Road to Death’s Door. The story takes place in Wisconsin’s scenic Door County. The heroes of the novel are a retired couple, Emily and Stan Remington.
My wonderful co-writer is Mary Joy Johnson, my sister-in-law. We are publishing under the pen name M.J. Williams. Mary Joy’s maiden name is Williams. And my legal maiden name is Margaret Mary Joque. So we both have MJ as initials in our names. And we both have the connection to the Williams name (I got mine from her brother—my wonderful hubby Mark).
The book is currently available in e-format for the Kindle at Amazon.com and for the Nook at Barnes and Noble. It will also soon be available in paperback through Amazon and, hopefully, other vendors. We are independently publishing it through Amazon’s print-on-demand service called CreateSpace.
You’ll be hearing lots about the book in posts to come, so that’s all I’ll say for now. Except that writing the book was so much fun—we spent a week up in Door County doing on-site research—that we’ve decided to make it into a series. The second book will be called On the Road to Where the Bells Toll. It takes place in Boston.
