I’m happy to welcome Wild Rose Press author Roxanne Dunn. Today, Roxanne shares an entertaining post and her new release, Murder Unrehearsed.
Recently, I ran into an old boyfriend “You’re looking good,” he said, pulling me in for a hug.
I started to smile and say “thanks.”
“… for an old broad.”
I’d forgotten he was the class clown.
Ah, well, I’ve forgotten a lot of things, and I’m liking it. Sometimes I even forget how many wrinkles I have.
Being an old broad isn’t all that bad. I don’t set my alarm and rush off to work anymore. Instead, I take my coffee outside, sit in my flower garden, and plan what I’m going to write that day.
Currently, I’m working on Murder Unsuspected, a novel in which the darling of a hilltop town in the south of France has been getting away with murder. And I’ve just started an untitled work set in Paris, my favorite city. It features a young woman who finances her seventh arrondissement apartment and extravagant lifestyle by helping herself to diamonds and other baubles their owners don’t really need.
When I’m not writing, I’m trying to understand how Amazon uses metadata and learn how to post on Instagram. And cook, clean, garden, do yoga, text my grandchildren, update my website, phone my aunts, teach my husband how to make pie crust, and make sure I have clean underwear. My life is rich and full.
To quote essayist John Burroughs, “I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, and all the friends I want to see.”

When aspiring young actress Heather Shelton jumps in the car with her dog, Bear, and flees to her family’s mountain cabin to escape an untidy romance, all she wants is peace and time to study for auditions. What she gets is murder. The only witness of a savage killing—and squarely in the cross-hairs of a ruthless assassin—she is injured and left for dead.
Heather knows handsome men are bad news, but hottie lawman Matt McCrae’s smile gets her every time, until he leaves her hanging out as bait to trap the killer. McCrae promises to protect her, but fails, and she faces the killer alone, with only Bear to help.
Where to find Roxanne…
I write the galley column for Pacific Yachting, a monthly magazine. My article consists of an essay, usually on a boating destination, incident, or adventure, and a recipe to make on board.
