"I like donuts and I like coffee. I like reading and I like writing. I like lots of things, actually..." ~ Ginger Bolton

"People gather in donut shops to drink coffee and eat delicious treats, and also to spend time with neighbors and friends. What if a murder occurred in a small town? Wouldn't patrons who spend time enjoying each others' company in the town's favorite coffee shop gossip about the tragedy and the possible culprits?

And the people who own that shop would hear things that might lead them to a murderer. Anything could happen...

Usually, when people ask where I get my ideas, I say, "Everywhere." That's true, but the idea for a donut shop run by people with connections to a police department came from Cops & Doughnuts. You can read their wonderful story at" ~ Ginger Bolton

"I may have too many hobbies. I love reading, writing, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and going on long walks with my dogs. I believe I want to make quilts. Sometimes I try to teach myself (not very successfully) how to play the piano.

A few years ago, I discovered embroidering using software and high-tech sewing machines. I'm not certain that everything I own simply must be embroidered, but creating the designs is really, really fun. And they'd go so well on crazy quilts...

I live way out in the country, a long drive from stores that sell supplies for people who like to create and embellish their own textiles and garments.

Sooooo....I invented Threadville, a village where everything I might want for my projects is on one short street, and I created Willow Vanderling, who is thrilled to own a machine embroidery boutique selling the gorgeous threads, fabrics, software, and machines that I wish I could find just down the block.

From time to time, Willow and her Threadville friends may need to take time out from their creative work to solve a murder or two. I hope you'll join them..." ~ Janet Bolin
