Rick Copp and Holly Simason, the brother-and-sister writing team who pen the Hayley Powell Food & Cocktails Mystery series under the name Lee Hollis, chat about their long-running series and the writing process behind the stories and the tasty recipes involved! Rick, who pens the Desert Flowers Mystery series himself under the Lee Hollis name, will also talk a little bit about his series starring Poppy Harmon. 

ABOUT DEATH OF A WICKED WITCH, THE MOST RECENT HAYLEY POWELL MYSTERY :  Bar Harbor, Maine, is quieter in the off-season, but the population has just increased a bit with the arrival of Ted and Trudy Lancaster. Ted’s taking over for a retiring minister, and Trudy runs a food truck called Wicked ’Wiches. When she stops in at the Island Times office to place an ad, Hayley happily devours the sample sub Trudy offers—and the two become fast friends.   When Trudy tragically dies in her truck while catering a Halloween party, suspicion falls on a cranky, competitive caterer who’d made veiled threats to Trudy. But the case becomes more complicated when Hayley’s husband admits he’d seen someone dressed as a witch hurrying away from the food truck—not very helpful when countless women at the party wore the same costume. Now Hayley finds herself sandwiched between witches and witnesses as she considers a smorgasbord of suspects. If she finds the killer, she’ll be a local hero . . .
