There’s more than one “me”.

The Betsy Devonshire Needlework Mysteries are my third series, written as Monica Ferris. The second series was about Dame Frevisse, Abbess of a nunnery in the days of Thomas Chaucer. (The books were written by Margaret Frazer, a pen name for the joint authorship of myself and Gail Frazer. The first five books were by the both of us; after that, Gail took over and I went off to be Monica Ferris.) But my first series, written as Mary Monica Pulver, was about Peter Brichter, an Illinois police detective, and his wife Kori. That series has mostly been out of print for over a decade.

That’s changing. The books are coming out as e-books. (The first book, Murder at the War, has been available as a trade paperback for some time.) To re-introduce the series, FTL Publications is offering them on Amazon. Murder at the War will be free as a Kindle book on February 11-12, with the remaining titles given away at a rate of one per week following that. If you like them, tell all your friends!
