Mystery Woman Sleuth

Sarah Booth Delaney, a Southern belle known for abiding by tradition only when it suits her, is no stranger to drama. A talented actress and a P.I., she’s chosen to pursue a career in Hollywood when she hears that her best friend’s husband is suddenly on his deathbed back home in Mississippi---and he's not the only one. The vicious illness begins with burning fevers and delirium, quickly plunging its victims into a coma. The Centers for Disease Control is on the scene, but they can’t find a cure for it or the boll weevils that are decimating Sunflower County’s cotton crop. With patients in quarantine and the whole town in crisis, Sarah drops everything to stop the outbreak and save the only place she’s ever been able to call home.

From feuding scientists to ailing locals, there is no shortage of bad blood coursing through the little town of Zinnia, Mississippi, as Carolyn Haines’s often steamy and always charming series turns equally intense in Greedy Bones.

Re: Greedy Bones

I like the idea that the characters are part of your life so thoroughly they come naturally to you
(Diane Sadler 9:22am July 7, 2009)

Thanks for sharing how your characters tell you the story if you are able to listen. Writing it down, an author feels challenged to get the whole story, while it's being revealed a piece at a time like some super puzzle.

Also, if you get tired of the people around you your could always hang out with the Zinnia Gang

I'm glad you're stopping by to guest blog Carolyn, because I'm dying to ask you a question!

A couple of years ago you published a suspense novel with MIRA - Revenant. I really adored that book and was curious if there were any plans to turn it into a series?

I have read all of your "Bones" books and can't wait to read Greedy Bones to see how Tinkie's husband is doing. I love Jitty...she's a haunt after my own heart.
(

Looking forward to Greedy Bones!!

Many authors have mentioned that
their long term characters, locale seem
to take on a life of their own..
Characters seem to dictate their
stories. Hopefully, yours will continue
to take you, and us, through their
world.

Sorry to be slow to respond. I had a
wonderful book signing at Main Street
Books in Hattiesburg. I arrived in a
monsoon with a bottle of Sarah
Booth's favorite libation and we had
great fun.

Thank you all for commenting. I have
this wild life--where I live most of the
day with fictional characters, but then I
also have this strong connection with
people I've never met BECAUSE of the
characters.

As to REVENANT, there are no plans
for future Carson Lynch books right
now. But I explore different fictional
terrain when I have time. So there's no
telling where I'll end up when the
Zinnia gang is finished with me for the
day.

I just completed Greedy Bones. Like all your other books it was a great read. However, I was so depressed when you didn't bring Coleman and Sarah back together. Since you dropped hints in this book that maybe Sarah would decide to remain in the Delta I'm hoping you'll do so in your next book. Keep up the great writing. How do you keep coming up with all those plots?!

Jitty always knows so much; I wonder if she knows of a cure for Morton's toe -

love the books, my best friend is from Yazhoo City, Mississippi, and have spent alot of summers there.

Have gotten my aunt into "reading" the series, on a road trip back east this summer we enjoyed listening to two books, drove longer than usual each day just to keep "reading".

Wondered if Greedy Bones would be put on CD? Are all of Sarah Booths books available on audio?

Not only do I love her writings, she is a wonderful teacher. I was a participant at a Writer's Workshop in Grand Bay after Hurricane Katrina. She brought out the best in the group.
