Marni Graff is the award-winning author of The Nora Tierney English Mysteries and The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries. Her most recent is the English mystery, THE EVENING's AMETHYST, book five in the Nora Tierney series, a book celebrated UK author Nicola Upson (The Josephine Tey series) notes: "Graff delivers her trademark blend of compelling mystery, vivid setting, and engaging characters—and in Nora Tierney she has created a sleuth whose humanity and insight are the stars of the show. A fine addition to a wonderful series. I loved it." Each of Graff's books are available in print, Kindle, and on Audible. Signed copies through Bridle Path Press: (http//bridlepathpress.com). Graff debuted the first of The Trudy Genova Manhattan Mysteries with DEATH UNSCRIPTED, which follows nurse Trudy Genova, who works as a medical consultant for a NY movie studio. Based on Graff's favorite nursing job when she lived in NY and suggested by Graff's mentor, P D James, Trudy Genova considers herself lucky to have such a great job without true emergencies. That is, until the actor who has been been annoying her suddenly dies in the middle of taping--but not before pointing his finger accusingly at Trudy. The second book in the series, DEATH AT THE DAKOTA find Trudy working on a television movie filmed at the famed Dakota apartment building, when the actress she's charged with protecting disappears, and shortly after, another cast member is murdered. Meanwhile, boyfriend NYPD detective Ned O'Malley faces a perplexing case, when the body of a burn victim is found in a dumpster, unable to be identified. How the two cases overlap will put Trudy in danger and almost end her budding romance with Ned. Bruce Robert Coffin, #1 bestselling author of The Detective Byron Mysteries, says: "Part procedural, part cozy, Death at the Dakota is a well-crafted and highly entertaining mystery." Readers of Death Unscripted will find the same pleasures in this sequel: fast pacing, engaging characters, twists and turns on the way to a satisfying close. Graff's first in the Nora Tierney English Mysteries, THE BLUE VIRGIN, won First Place for British Cozy in the Mystery and Mayhem Awards from Chanticleer Media. Her fourth in that series, THE GOLDEN HOUR, takes Nora to Brighton, Cornwall and Bath, where a stalker turns deadly serious in Nora's life just as her partner, Declan Barnes, investigates the murder of an art conservator. These two threads are interwoven to frame the book author Ausma Khan calls ". . . a meditation on love, loss and motherhood, THE GOLDEN HOUR blends touchingly real domesticity with tongue-in-cheek humor, as the backdrop to a tale of art theft, germ warfare, and international conspiracy." GH was shortlisted for the Mystery and Mayhem Award from Chanticleer Media. With these all set in the UK, Graff's English series follows the American children's book writer as Nora manages to involve herself in police investigations. THE BLUE VIRGIN is set in Oxford, that hallowed mix of town and gown. THE GREEN REMAINS takes Nora to England's glorious Lake District and also won Best British Cozy from Chanticleer Media. Book 3 in the series, THE SCARLET WENCH, was shortlisted for the same award. Here's what Editing Pen and Publishing had to say about the series: " . . . Graff's clean, uncluttered style is smooth and polished, and there are no irrelevant details or conversations. . . I loved every page of all the books."
