It’s my pleasure to welcome J.Q. Rose, author of Coda to Murder!
What is your book about?
Pastor Christine Hobbs deals with situations never addressed in seminary such as catching the person who murdered her church music director in the basement of the church or caring for a pig and kangaroo in the back yard of the parsonage.
The word, forgiveness.
Fun, entertaining, escape
I usually let the story swirl through my brain for quite awhile. I usually figure out scenes and characters while taking a shower or quiet walks. Then I scribble down about 15 plot points in my spiral notebook to use as a guide to keep on the story on track. This is not written in stone, only on paper and erasable pencil!
I was thrilled when Pastor Laurie consented to be interviewed for my inspiring book for girls, Girls Succeed. I used some of her background and mixed it up with some other women I admire to come up with my main character, Pastor Christine Hobbs.
Not so much killing off a character as actually choosing someone I like to be the killer!
I’m not really up on actors’ names. But if you can think of a gal who is tall, lean, smart, and pretty then she would be my Christine.
My critique writers group named the Koffee Kuppe Writers because we hash all the stories out at the little restaurant in town known as the Koffee Kuppe. I also share chapters with a writers group that meets at our library.
Probably doing research for writing my stories. If I tell you what I googled, it may spoil the ending of my mystery, Sunshine Boulevard.
Mainly I am working on promoting, but when I get through the big push, I will return to a book I started many years ago, a coming of age story for a 13 year old girl. Lots of humor and funny situations. I also plan on writing more non fiction for girls and continue working on a mystery/paranormal featuring another strong female character.
I am thrilled to have a mystery/romance to share with you. I hope it’s an entertaining and satisfying read for you. Please feel free to contact me with feedback on my stories, a wave, or a hug at jqrose02 at gmail dot com

Pastor Christine Hobbs has been in the pulpit business for over five years. She never imagined herself caring for a flock that includes a pig, a kangaroo, and a murderer.
Detective Cole Stephens doesn’t want the pretty pastor to get away with murdering the church music director. His investigative methods infuriate Christine as much as his deep brown eyes attract her.
After writing feature articles in magazines, newspapers, and online magazines for over fifteen years, J.Q. Rose entered the world of fiction writing with her first published novella, Sunshine Boulevard, released by MuseItUp Publishing in 2011. Her latest mystery, Coda to Murder, was released in February. Blogging, photography, Pegs and Jokers board games, and travel are the things that keep her out of trouble. Spending winters in Florida with her husband allows Janet the opportunity to enjoy the life of a snowbird. Summer finds her camping and hunting toads, frogs, and salamanders with her four grandsons and granddaughter.
Thanks for stopping by today, Janet. I wish you great success with Coda to Murder!
