Author Finds Mystery in Romance (and Romance in Mystery)

Mary Ann Grossmann, book critic for the St. Paul (MN) Pioneer Press, recently ran a profile on Lois Greiman, author of more than 15 historial romance novels and now author of two romantic mysteries.

Grieman's mysteries feature Christina McMullen, a Los Angeles cocktail waitress-turned-psychologist who finds herself doing amateur sleuthing. Greiman introduced Chrissy last June in Unzipped and her second mystery in the series, Unplugged, was published last month.

According to Grossmann, Lois Greiman doesn't consider it a stretch to write contemporary mystery romances after doing books set in the past. "The characters in the McMullen books are pretty much the obstinate, opinionated characters I've always done,'' she says. "I like my characters to be unleashed and go at each other.''

Grieman has two more McMullen books under contract: Unscrewed will come out next February. Her new romance, Tempting the Wolf, set in Regency London and about a werewolf, will be published in August.
