Shh! Authors at Work

Wondering what's ahead from the Classic and Cozy Authors? Wonder no longer. Here are some of the projects we're working on.
Title: Jail Bird
Main Characters: Roxanne and Cyran (an homage to Cyrano de Bergerac) and parallel mini-romance featuring Claire Voyant, (yes, I DID go there), and Sam
Genre: Romantic Comedy
One Paragraph from the Page I'm On:
A silent alarm. A cracked safe. A missing manuscript. And now, a car chase. Well, it wasn’t so much a “chase” as a two block crawl with a dramatic musical backdrop courtesy of the local country radio station.
Publication Date: April 30th! (I’ve gotta get crankin’.)
Did you know: Did you know that in Cyrano De Bergerac, by Edmond Rostand, 1897, Cyrano and Roxanne were cousins? Ewww.

Title: The Matchmakers: A Match Made in Williamstown
Main Characters: Libby Schuyler and Jack Parker
Genre & Publisher: Inspirational Romance Novella proposed to Serenade Books
One Paragraph from the Page I'm On:
Jack unfolded his fists he hadn’t realized he clenched and looked over Libby’s head at her grandmother. He pasted a smile on his face. “I’m ready. I haven’t had a good home cooked meal in months, since the last time I visit my parents.”
Due Date: June 20
Publication Date: None yet
Did You Know (something I learned for this story): The University of Philadelphia has a Department of Religious Studies


  1. Both books sounds like great reads. Can't wait. Keep us posted. Really love this glimpse into coming attractions.

  2. Hi Jean--
    Thanks for the glimpse into these works-in-progress. I always like to know what everyone is working on.

  3. I agree! It's interesting and helpful to learn what other writers have going on.

  4. This idea is great. Maybe we could all contribute to a page of WIPs and keep updating as we make progress (or not!).
