The Fuchsia, Minnesota Series

Granny Hooks A Crook #1


Granny leads a secret life in the small, unique community of Fuchsia, Minnesota. It’s not just her all junk food diet, multiplying pets, or her shocking bedtime attire that makes Granny one in a million. No, Granny is an undercover cop, charged by “the Big Guy” (the town’s police chief) of preventing theft in local stores. Granny takes her job seriously and daily foils many shoplifters using her trusty spiked umbrella and amazing acting skills. When some startlingly brazen burglaries begin to occur that Granny can’t solve, along with mysteriously appearing bad guys, disappearing clerks, and misplaced Corvettes, Granny begins to wonder if she isn’t ready for the wrinkle farm. Maybe, it’s fortuitous when she accidentally-on-purpose falls in the lap of an attractive older gentleman who is soon roped into her wild adventures, as they try to figure out what’s happening in their little town.

Granny Skewers A Scoundrel #2

Granny has a new addition to her arsenal of crime fighting weapons as Fuchsia, Minnesota’s most colorful detective. Now, along with her famous crook-hooking umbrella, she’s acquired a scoundrel-skewering knitting needle. And just in time! Residents of Fuchsia seem to be dropping dead like flies! First, it’s Granny’s neighbor Sally (who gives up the ghost in her weed-filled front yard), followed by Esmeralda Periwinkle (the squirrel lover on Main Street), and then, Mr. Nail, owner of the local hardware store (who is squashed when dozens of bags of fertilizer fall on top of him). Granny is baffled. Who is behind this murder spree?

Granny enlists the help of her sort-of-boyfriend Franklin Gatsby, the town’s police chief Cornelius Stricknine (or “The Big Guy”), her reality-show loving neighbor Mavis, and her own son Thor. And, of course, the special assistance of her menagerie of pets – including Mr. Bleaty, the goat. Soon Granny is hot on the trail of this dastardly murderer. Unfortunately, when Granny herself is poisoned, everyone insists that she cool her crime solving ways and stay indoors and out of harm’s way. Of course, that’s never going to happen! Not when Granny knows all the secret passageways and tunnels that run underneath Fuchsia. Out she goes – and watch out, you evil doers! Granny will solve this mystery – you can bet your pink undies, she will!

Granny Snows A Sneak #3

Granny may be retired as Fuchsia, Minnesota’s one-woman undercover sleuth for the Fuchsia Police Department, but that doesn’t mean she still doesn’t need a trusty weapon. Her weapon of choice? 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! Who’s at the bottom of this years-old crime? Granny has an idea, but she has little time to investigate, when in just days she’s scheduled to marry the love of her life, Franklin Gatsby, in a post-Christmas ceremony. So, Granny decides to enlist the help of her friends and neighbors. Add in Christmas Holiday excitement and the arrival of Granny’s family, who are all there for her wedding, and mayhem ensues. Of course, Granny can always count on her many furry friends to provide her with moral support, but it’s quite possible that Granny—that is, Hermiony Vidalia Criony Fiddlestadt—has a secret or two of her own, which may very well be revealed as Granny Snows A Sneak.

Granny’s In Trouble – Children Series and for those Young At Heart

Whatchamacallit? Thingamajig?

Abby had her fingers full of chocolate cookie dough. She was putting her fingers to her mouth to sample a taste while no one was looking. Maggie had her back turned to Abby. She was sneaking a couple of chocolate chips out of the bag and into her mouth before she gave the bag to Abby so the chocolate chips could be added to the cookies. Both of them had their hands halfway to their mouth when the phone rang.
Both Abby and Maggie jumped and quickly dropped their hands to their sides as Brady ran into the kitchen and snatched up the phone.
*Brady, Brady, all of you have to come quickly. I need your help.* screamed Grandma.
Yes Grandma is in trouble again and the four cousins scramble to her aid. What they find when they look for her is a ransacked house, a missing Grandma and clues they don’t understand. What they learn about Grandma leaves them wide eyed and open mouthed.

“Stop!” Abby yelled. “I have news.” Maggie stopped by Abby, but Jake and Brady were having too much fun playing Annie Annie Over with the pen they had whisked off the table where Maggie had dropped it when she was going to chase Jake and Brady. It flew over the girls’ heads with ease. The look of concern on Abby’s face was enough to get Maggie’s attention, leaving her to ignore the pen that was flying over their heads. Once Brady and Jake saw that their sisters were not paying any attention to their antics but whispering seriously about something, the boys put down the pen. “What’s going on?” Yes, Grandma was in trouble again and the four cousins had to rescue her. Following her trail, and figuring out the clues, lead the cousins to secrets Grandma had not told them about her past. The fun they find along the way makes this a book for young readers and also the young at heart.
