Co-writing: 4 Eyes and 2 Heads, a guest post by Janet Elizabeth Lynn

Author Janet Elizabeth Lynn joins us on the blog today.  She co-writes the Skylar Drake mystery series with husband Will Zeilinger. 

Co-writing:4 Eyes and 2 Headsby Janet Elizabeth Lynn

My husband, Will Zeilinger, is also a published author.  We decided to come together and write a 1950s hard-boiled mystery, the Skylar Drake Murder Mysteries series.

We have different styles of writing.  I tend to write very edgy, and Will tends to be humorous with an edge.  Combining our styles makes for more interesting character dialogue and personality.  Our editor also noticed a very different style in the Skylar Drake series, yet neither one of us can imitate the style without the other.  We tried, and it came close but wasn't the same.  So it is important to value difference in the style each partner brings to the table.  

The results? Slivers of GlassStrange MarkingsDesert Ice and Spike Hill (to be released 2/2018)...and yes, we're still married.

From Sourcebooks:

The first book in the brand-new Welcome Back to Scumble River series featuring New York Times bestselling author Denise Swanson’s beloved setting and characters, Dead in the Water, is a gripping mystery that won’t let you go until you’ve turned the last page.

School psychologist Skye Denison-Boyd wishes she could click her ruby-red high-tops, chant “There’s no place like home,” and go back to life pre-tornado. With her house destroyed and a baby on the way, the last thing she needs is a dead body among the rubble.

But that’s exactly what she finds.

Zeke Lyon, the town’s mild-mannered bookkeeper, appears to have been a victim of the tornado—but some of the details don’t quite add up. When Skye starts to dig into Zeke’s mysterious death, her police chief husband, Wally, goes missing and she’s sure he’s been kidnapped.

Will she be able to solve the case and find her husband before it’s too late?
