Some people are terrified of spiders…are you?

If you’re not, one woman just may change the way you think…

FOREVER

By spring, I will start writing my next novel, Weaving Evil, which you read about in the above teaser. As I plan for this, I’d love your help naming a character in the story…one of the victims.  I’ve come up with three names, and I invite you to have your say in naming by voting on one of the following names.  The poll will be open until February 26.  At that time, the name with the most votes will be given to a character in my book.  Thanks for your feedback!

Get to Know Homicide Detective Kelli Jordan

Posted in Get To Know The Characters! with tags , , , , , on 01-21-2010 by jeffreymartinsnovels

Kelli Jordan was on the last lap of her run.  The Marcona High School running track was open to the public, and she always took advantage of it. Today, she probably should have run inside on the treadmill, but that wasn’t her style. Kelli increased her speed, glancing down at her sports watch. The former Marine Corps Officer, and lanky college athlete, wouldn’t let a little ice and cold weather keep her from her daily ritual. She turned the final bend and finished strong. A quick glimpse of the watch had her time recorded at nine minutes and forty-six seconds.  Pretty damned good, for a thirty-something year old, she thought.

She slowed to a brisk walk and pulled off her thermal ski mask.  Her long black hair spilled out as she rubbed a gloved hand through it briskly. Okay, now it’s cold.  Kelli walked off the track and headed for the snow covered parking lot.  She opened the door to the gray Lumin and noticed the digital pager in the cup holder flashing red. I’m on vacation. She forcefully grabbed the annoyance and looked at the number.  End of vacation.  Kelli grabbed her cell from her coat on the passenger seat. She dialed the number, and a man answered before the second ring.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who voted for me on the 2009 Preditors and Editors poll in the thriller category.  Because of your efforts, I made a strong showing.  I couldn’t have done it without you!

Recently, my book, Deadly Demented, was nominated on the 2009 Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll.  This poll allows the readers to vote for their favorite books published in 2009, and I was honored to see my latest book on the list in the thriller category.  It is doing well in the poll, but you can propel it to the number one spot by voting by visiting this site:
