I love a good mystery, and for this page, I'd like to show you my Parrot Mysteries!
My first mystery novel, a cozy mystery with a talking African Grey Parrot as a witness to a crime, has been an Amazon Bestseller!
The Parrot Told Me
Who would believe the words of a bird brain, anyway? When Camille inherits Simon, an African grey parrot from her deceased neighbor, she sees the challenge of owning such a noisy, spoiled pet. But when the music plays, and Simon starts to replay a violent scene in the voice of his former owner, Camille begins to realize that she has inherited more than she bargained for. Could a bird really recall the last moments of his owner’s life? And stranger yet, could he really be repeating a death scene that he witnessed? Camille’s best friend, Leo, has his doubts, and after the disappearance of Camille’s sister, he wonders if her tragic past is coming back to haunt her and she is finally breaking down. But she has no one else to go to, no one besides the questionable other neighbor who might well have been involved with the murder victim. It’s a question of a bird’s word against the truth and a race to find out what it all means.
The Cockatoo Called
Ainsley doesn’t have much experience with pets, especially with fluffy feathered ones who want to sleep in her bed and eat her breakfast. When she finds a cockatoo apparently lost in her yard, she is unaware of the adventures that will result from his accidental landing. In her search for his owner, she is introduced to a whole cast of fascinating characters. But there is someone after the bird. From a search for a lost piece of valuable artwork to a trip with a pirate to chase down a friend’s legacy, Ainsley’s life has taken a turn for the dangerous. And Gabe, the cockatoo’s new owner, has his hands full trying to keep them both safe from whoever is after his inheritance. Can anyone blame Ainsley for losing not just her head, but her heart to the adorable pair?
The Macaw Muttered
What does an uptight scientist, a freewheeling veterinarian, a pirate wanna be, and a massive parrot have in common?
When Hemingway, the Green Wing Macaw that is her father’s best friend and constant companion, shows up on her doorstep, Genevieve wants nothing more than to return him. He’s messy, loud, and an irritating reminder of her wayward parent. However, her father has disappeared without a word, and she has no idea how to find him.
Reluctantly, she sets out on a road trip with a family friend, a silky voiced veterinarian with a bad case of disorganization, to Florida to hunt down the parrot’s owner and return him. Faced with constant roadblocks and some real hints of danger, they attempt to track down her father.
Will they be in time to help save a vital piece of Florida’s legacy and her father?
