I am very honored to have Rachel Sharpe come to visit. Rachel’s book, ‘Cold Ambition’, is a 2015 RONE Award finalist. Congratulations on that honor, Rachel! Today she is here to talk about her work. Rachel, welcome and please, take it away. What can you tell us about yourself before we dive into your books?
RS: I’ve always wanted to write. Ever since I was a child, I loved books and being immersed in worlds outside my own. And I’ve always been drawn to mystery and suspense. After graduating college, in my spare time, I decided I wanted to write. And I knew I wanted it to be a mystery. My first foray was a novella about a small town detective solving the murder of a prominent philanthropist at a Louisiana summer seafood festival. Although it was a decent first try, I knew I could do better. That’s where Jordan James came in.
After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in English, I began dedicating my free time to my childhood passion, writing, and in the fall of 2013, I signed with Soul Mate Publishing. An active member of Sisters In Crime, I currently reside with my husband in the Greater New Orleans area.

With one actor dead and a killer on the loose, can Jordan uncover the culprit before another victim makes headlines on Hollywood Minute?
