I'll drink a cup to Fat Friendly Fiction in 2013!

This year I'm collaborating with Pearlsong Press to put out a Fat Friendly Fiction list. The blog is in progress with information and links to all the titles. Eventually an ebook version wil be available. But I want to start by posting the authors by genre. Please feel free to visit Fat Friendly Fiction for more info or to comment.

Email me at murraymade@yahoo.com for a one-page printable Word version of the author list.

Here it is for your reading pleasure! FAT FRIENDLY FICTION

  1. I immensely enjoyed the Josephine Fuller mysteries. Why did the series end? I'd love to see them adapted for TV or cinema. Camryn Manheim strikes me as the ideal actress to portray Fuller.

  2. Hi Exeter,
    Thanks for the comment, you definitely made my week! The series ended when the publishing industry went into a major tailspin. A great many mystery writers had our series cancelled. Some authors started new series and others took it as an opportunity to experiment with new forms. So I wrote a romantic comedy, Bride of the Living Dead, and then a vampire story, The Falstaff Vampire Files.

    I agree with you about Camryn Manheim making an ideal Josephine. I did manage to give her a copy of Larger Than Death when I got her to sign her autobiography at a book signing event. Of course, the television business, like the book publishing business is all about selecting the most popular properties and none of my books have become bestsellers....yet! I've often thought of writing another Jo Fuller book, and I haven't totally ruled out that idea, but for me, writing a book takes a long time, so I can't promise anything in the near future. I'll keep you posted!

    Take care, live large and prosper!
