Two books by A. Colin Wright and an ebook by Cynthia St-Pierre

Dear Brian,
I’ve recently self-published two new books: A Cupboardful of Shoes and Sardinian Silver.
Check them out here:,
All the best,
A. Colin Wright

Hi, Brian.
It’s obvious when one reads all the letters you receive from students who have gone on to publish or to win contests that your instruction, not to mention your encouragement, works. In my case, A Purse to Die For, a mystery co-authored with Melodie Campbell, came out in July as an Imajin Books e-book and paperback.

What’s more treacherous than navigating a pack of society matrons at a designer sale?

Stalking a killer…

When fashionista and television celeb Gina Monroe goes home to attend the funeral of her late grandmother, the last thing she expects to encounter is murder. And the reading of the will is anything but fashionable as unanswered questions arise. Who is the dead woman in the woods behind the family house? And why is she dressed in Milano designer clothes?

With help from her cousin Tony and Detective Rob Dumont, Gina investigates the not-so-model citizens around her. When another murder occurs, a pattern slowly emerges and Gina wonders if her grandmother's death wasn't so natural after all.

It’s not like the learning stops at publication. The editing process was educational and the writing I continue to do to market Purse, as we affectionately call it, keeps me a student of the craft. Learning is enjoyable. I can only imagine how satisfying teaching is.

Thank you,
Cynthia St-Pierre,
