Granny Hooks a Crook (Fuchsia, Minnesota, book 1) by Julie Seedorf
It was done on a lark to wake me out of a depressive state. Each day I would wake up eager to start my day with the next chapter in my story. All I knew was that the story, and the characters, got me out of bed in the morning and gave me reason to look forward to my day. The silliness in the story brought the silliness and fun back to me, the me, I used to be many years ago. I was a glass half empty person and writing made me a glass half full person.

I have to credit God too because I have to think that he put the story in my head. If people would ask me if it was hard to write my second book I would absolutely answer yes. Granny Skewers a Scoundrel was hard to write because of the expectations that I thought might be out there from my publishing company, Cozy Cat Press, my readers, my friends.
What if I bombed? That is, if people thought the first book was good. Critics can be very harsh. Would my publishing company accept the second book?
Laugh out loud mysteries. Memorable Children's Books.
Would I become a one book wonder? For a while writing went from being a lark, to being too paralyzed to actually sit down and start that second book, Granny Skewers a Scoundrel. It was harder writing that second book because of fear. Once I actually started the process the Granny in my head took over again.
As I was writing all the critiques of my first book went through my mind like scrolling text on a computer screen. Did I want to change my writing and conform to what people would expect? Although the good reviews far outweighed the bad reviews, it is the bad reviews that tend to stick in our heads at the time of stress and deadlines. As I was deep into my story I found that I did change a little of my writing.
I added between the lines a vulnerability to Granny. A pink snow shovel. When Granny runs over a dead body with her snowmobile, she unwittingly sets off a chain of events that involves mislabeled corpses, empty graves, and stolen money—lots of it!
