Pseudonym: Gayle Leeson.

Dear Reader

Have you ever wanted a "do-over"? Daphne Martin knows all about do-overs. At age 40, she retired from a government job in Tennessee to move back to her hometown of Brea Ridge, Virginia to start her own cake decorating business. With her ex-husband serving time in a Tennessee prison for attempted murder (lucky for Daphne, he's a lousy marksman), Daphne is eager to put her old life behind her and start life anew.

I hope you'll join Daphne in her cake decorating adventures in Brea Ridge. You'll meet a parrot who facilitates breaking and entering, a woman named China who is anything but fragile, a prize-winning guinea pig who lives high on the hog and a widow in her sixties who enjoys rocking out to musical video games.

Gayle Trent is a ‘cozy mystery’ author whose work combines quirky characters like Daphne Martin with merriment and suspense for small town adventures in Murder Takes the Cake - the first book in the Daphne Martin Cake Decorating Mystery Series

Gayle writes a cozy embroidery mystery series for NAL/Penguin under the pseudonym Amanda Lee. The first book in that series is due to be released in August of 2010. If you're a hobby enthusiast, be sure to visit Gayle's blog on Mondays and Wednesdays to read "Killer Cakes" and "Sew Deadly" (respectively), newsletters written by the heroines of Gayle's mystery series.
