Toni, I was wondering, why did you want to write this under a pen name? Wouldn't it be more gratifying to have the recognition under your own name?

Toni L.P. Kelner

Georgia, this was my publisher's suggestion, but I'm fine with it. The idea is that with a new series--and a new direction--the book would get more attention as a "new" writer. It's a strategy that has worked extremely well for other writers, and it is an open secret. The info sent to Amazon includes the fact that I'm Leigh, and the copyright is in my name.

Kathy Lynn Emerson

Congrats, Toni. I'm looking forward to reading the new series. Great cover!


Elaine Viets

Congratulations, Toni. Writing is like love -- it never gets old. I hope you'll have both forever.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO fabulous! And terrific terrific review in RT! HURRAY!

I love Sid already - what a delightful idea.

Donna Andrews

Looking forward to it! Delighted to read more Toni books, under any name!

Dean James

Can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Kelly Saderholm

The cover looks terrific- I love the skeleton on the spine! You've captured my curiosity- a skeleton as a character?!! How cool is that? Soooo looking forward to reading this.
