News: Author Turns her Dedication into a Mystery

Matthew Chew of the Tehachapi (CA) News writes that local author Eve Geisler got the inspiration for her first mystery, The Canal Murder, after walking along a canal in Indianapolis.The Canal Murder by Eve Geisler

He adds that the effort actually began long before the day she looked into the canal. The book has twists like any other mystery thriller, but this thriller has a twist unlike other books of the genre.

Her heroine, Claire Barton, is a private detective who not only has to solve a mystery, but has to deal with her own shadows. She has Type I diabetes.

"She comes to terms with her diabetes as she solves the mystery,” said Geisler.

In the mid-1990s, Geisler, who used to work in a Tehachapi pharmacy, decided to learn more about the disease. Today, she is a diabetes educator, teaching those with the condition about diet, exercise, medicines, and monitoring their bodies.

Chew notes that originally the book was serialized in Diabetes Health magazine. In 2004, Geisler felt the story needed to be released in book form to make the information available to a wider public, and self-published her mystery.
