Author Spotlight ~ Rosalee Richland

I am so very happy to have on my blog today

Rosalee Richland

and the Darla King Series


Rosalee Richland is the pen name of two square dancers and writers. As Rosalee, co-authors Cyndi Riccio and Rhonda Brinkmann joined forces to create the Darla King cozy mystery series.  Darla’s curiosity often puts her squarely in the midst of unusual circumstances, and Darla can’t let go until the mystery is solved.   Through Darla and her friends, readers are exposed to the warmth and friendship among square dancers, as well as the enjoyment square dancing brings worldwide.

When not writing, Darla’s co-authors enjoy reading, traveling, meeting readers and fans, networking with other authors, and – of course – square dancing.  The first in the series is RIGHT AND LEFT GRAND and takes place at various locations in Texas.  The second in the series is LOAD THE BOAT. As you might guess from the title, this one takes place on a cruise ship.

Currently they are working on Darla’s next mystery and the twists and turns it will take.  Like the first two, the title is a square dance call – FOLLOW YOUR NEIGHBOR.  Anticipated release is Fall 2014.

If you have a chance, stop in at a book signing and find out which half of Rosalee shows up! In the meantime you can stay in touch with Rosalee and Darla:

Right and Left Grand is a cozy mystery set in the context of square dancing. Darla left her career as an investigator with the State Attorrney’s Office in Florida and moved to Texas wanting nothing to do with law enforcement. She never dreamed that her midlife career change to square dance caller would place her in a position to assist law enforcement officials in solving crimes. When an unconscious stranger turns up on the ranch of one of her dance club members, her specialized knowledge of square dancing may hold the key to the identity of his assailants. With Darla’s natural curiosity, she and her close friends from the Clearton Squares end up in the thick of things — and in danger.

Darla King left her position as a Florida investigator hoping to avoid any further involvement with law enforcement—but her curiosity keeps getting in her way. Darla is beginning to realize that what she envisioned as the simple life of a square dance caller is not so simple after all. When Darla agrees to serve as a square dance caller on a cruise, she plans on a little work and a lot of fun, sun, and romance. Her friends from Clearton Squares have the same ideas. Instead, she and her friends discover pornographic DVDs, a dead crew member, and a mysterious man with a satchel. She lands in danger, escaping with on-the-spot ingenuity. All that and Mandy, who has bad memories from a previous cruise and is getting a little too friendly with Doug. This is the second in the Darla King series and continues her adventures.
