Mystery Publishing Demystified

On Saturday, January 21, fellow mystery writers Maya Corrigan and Sherry Harris and I will be at the Potomac Community Library discussing the inspiration for our mystery series, our experiences working with large publishers, trends in mystery publishing and more! We will also answer questions and sign books so we hope you come out of the cold and join us for some “demystifying” fun. For more information, check out my Events page.


College Park Library Book Festival, Malice Domestic, Dramathon & Nora Roberts

Despite the unusually chilly weather (yes, there were flurries!), I had a wonderful time April 9 at the 4th Annual College Park Community Library Book Festival seeing readers, fellow writers like Penny Clover Petersen, and Bella, the library dog! Jackie, Elaine and the entire staff did an amazing job organizing this fun, family friendly event.

NEXT UP… Looking forward to more springtime fun! At the end of April, I’ll be at Malice Domestic meeting up with readers and writers and speaking on a panel about murder at the beach. On May 6, I’ll be participating in The Theatre Lab’s annual Dramathon at Theatre J with my play “Baby Blue” to help raise money to send kids to theatre camp. Finally, on May 19, I’ll be at Turn the Page Bookstore with Nora Roberts and other authors for Girls Night Out!


Recent Press

Mr. Heimpel’s review made me smile!    “There is certainly nothing ‘neigh’gative about this most impressive work of fiction.” – Ron Heimpel, Shelf Life Magazine  Read full issue


“If you love a good light-hearted mystery with romantic tension, beautiful scenery and eccentric, animal-loving characters, this mystery series is for you! With so many suspects to choose from, I enjoyed playing the guessing game until the very last chapter.” – Jessica Sinn, Chick Lit Café  Read full review


“Kathryn O’Sullivan’s third entry in the Colleen McCabe series, Neighing with Fire (following Murder on the Hoof and its debut, Foal Play) is the most delightful, most intriguing one yet… Sunny beaches; cute, adorable pets; wild Mustangs; feuding characters; fiery explosions; and gruesome deaths make Neighing with Fire an excellent installment in a unique cozy series that continues to improve with age.” – Joseph B. Hoyos, Gumshoe Review Read full review


“Boasting a great cast of characters, engaging dialogue and a feel-good atmosphere, this is my favorite book thus far and I look forward to the next book in this delightfully captivating series.” – Dru’s Book Musings Read full review


“O’Sullivan’s well-crafted mysteries invoke the senses with rich details of the scenery and pace of life in the popular North Carolina tourist area. Colleen’s confusion about her romantic life adds an endearing facet to her otherwise tough-as-nails personality. This one will attract both readers of romance-centric cozies and those who favor Bill Crider’s small-town procedurals.” – Amy Alessio, Booklist
