Welcome to the Killer Fiction blog!

We’re six romantic mystery writers who like our murders with a generous dose of laughter: Kathleen Bacus, Christie Craig, Jana DeLeon, Gemma Halliday (moi!), Leslie Langtry, and Bethany True. You can check out our brand new spiffy website at: to learn more about us. We’re really excited about this new blog and plan to offer lots of fun posts, guest bloggers, contests, and insights into the minds of women who spend their days planning the perfect murder.

A little about me: I’m Gemma Halliday and I write the High Heels Mysteries about L.A. shoe designer turned amateur sleuth, Maddie Springer and her lustfully hot LAPD Detective boyfriend, Jack Ramirez. My past books have included Spying In High Heels, Killer In High Heels, and my latest coming out at the end of this month, Undercover In High Heels. (See a theme here? Yeah, I’ve got kind of a thing for shoes.) I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I spend my non-writing hours watching way too much reality TV, reading way too many books poolside, buying way too many pairs of heels, and dating way too few hot California men. (Know any? Send 'em my way!)

As a celebration of our new blog, I’m ponying up the prize for our very first contest. So, without further ado… I’m giving away an advanced reader copy of my latest book Undercover In High Heels to one lucky winner! How do you enter? Easy, just blog about Killer Fiction. Tell people how cool we are, what kind of books we write, that you love the shade of pink on our website – say anything you want, just make sure that you mention a ) our website: and b) our blog: Then come back here and put the link to your post in a comment. The contest ends August 24th, so hop to it!

~Gemma “Trigger Happy” Halliday

Hey Gemma. I posted about you on my blog. I can't wait for Undercover to come out! I guess I'll wait to see if I win first though. LOL...but, I've already dropped by Amazon to check out your co-bloggers books and I already have a few books to pick up AND put on my wish list. Love the new blog!!! Congrats!

I just love the new site and particularly the Dangerous Divas in Killer Fiction!!

Gemma Halliday said...

Woohoo – you ladies rock! No way are you too late, you’re all entered to win an ARC of UNDERCOVER IN HIGH HEELS. I think I originally said the contest goes through Aug 24th, so you’ve still got a whole week to blog about us!

I’m so glad you guys like the website! I had so much fun hanging out with these ladies at RWA in Dallas this year. Man are they fuuuuunny! We really wanted to do something fun and interesting and very us with the website. I hope we pulled it off!

And, yes I can personally vouch for all these lady’s books. I’ve read them all and they are fabulous. Just, beware of reading them in public places – people look at you funny when you’re busting up over a book with a gun on the cover.

Oh crud, I should have posted this in my other comment.

Gemma, do you have anymore news from USA Network? I remember a couple months ago exciting news that Spying in Heels may be made into a show but haven't heard anything else. Any updates for us?

Hi Gemma this new blog is awesome!!! Great contest too!

Gemma Halliday said...

Hey Jennifer! The last I heard, they’re working on script rewrites (incorporating some ideas from the network, the writer, and the books) and will then be presenting the script to the network for approval to shoot a pilot. I’m *hoping* to know more by next month. I’ll certainly post on the blog when I do!
