Last month Kate Garrett was a Police Detective. Now she's a Pet P.I.?

Kate recently inherited half her father's private investigation company and a partner who is as irritating as he is attractive. Kate has been avoiding Jake Carmedy for years, but now her life might depend on him.

Kate and Jake are on the hunt for a serial cat killer who has mysterious connections to her father's last police case. Kate's father had been forced to retire when he was shot investigating a domestic disturbance. Is the shooter back for revenge? And is Kate or Jake next?

Alison Bruce has an honors degree in history and philosophy, which has nothing to do with any regular job she's held since. A liberal arts education did prepare her to be a writer, however. She penned her first novel during lectures while pretending to take notes.

Alison writes mysteries, romantic suspense and historical western romance. Her protagonists are marked by their strength of character and their ability to adapt (sooner or later) to new situations.

Copywriter and editor since 1992, Alison has also been a comic book store manager, small press publisher and web designer. In addition to writing, she is the Publication Manager of Crime Writers of Canada, Arthur Ellis Awards Administrator, and part-time tech guru to the technologically challenged.

"...easy read, humorous and poignant."

My home blog started as the musings of an author, copywriter, editor, designer, and mother. Sit me down in a cafe with large black coffee (or vente Americano) and I can write about anything.

Gradually I've got more ambitious and started the Shorts series. Holiday Shorts, Valentine Shorts and Summer Shorts have been running for three years now, with contributions from a variety of authors. Check out the Shorts Page.

Cowboy Kisses is a shared blog. Drop on by for a taste of the old west. Even if you shy away from romance, you'll enjoy the fruits of the research required to write a historical western.
