Author Biography

I always thought I would communicate in the world as a writer. But life sometimes takes left turns and I went to broadcasting school instead of journalism school. I spent thirty years having fun, spinning records, interviewing people, and doing love song dedications. In 1998 my program was selected as the Best Mid-Day Music Show in San Diego at the First Annual A.I.R Awards. (Achievement in Radio.) Eventually, I felt the need to get a “real” job, one that was stable with good benefits. I left radio and went to work for the US Federal Government. In my private hours, I began doing what I really loved—writing. In 2015 and 2016 I was selected as one of the 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading by the Authorshow.com.

Seattle detectives Nick Winston and Pat Strom are not prepared for the devastating murder scene to which they have been assigned. Not only is the victim dead, she has been butchered beyond any conceivable definition of the word. Beautiful young party girl Kylee Harris is just looking for a good time, not knowing that tonight would be her last good time ever. The crime is initially labeled as an unfortunate crime of passion, and Nick and Pat hope that this is an isolated case. But, when a second gruesome murder is reported, they fear that a possible serial killer is afoot. As the body count grows to three, the detectives know they have something serious with which to contend. All the bodies are of beautiful women with seemingly nothing in common. They were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. But when she digs deeper, Detective Strom connects the deaths with an unexpected commonality. The beautiful women all share an interest in lesbian activity.

Packed full of prime suspense and page turning events, Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die by Kelly Marshall is certain to land on the bestseller lists, alongside such masters of the genre as James Patterson. Marshall has taken a classic case of whodunit and created a fresh twist to the standard crime novel by allowing the lead investigator an alternative sexual preference. Main character Pat Strom is a refreshing element in the populated world of investigative detectives. The introduction of Officer Patricia Strom to the world of literary investigators is pure genius.
