Juliet Kincaid, Writer

I’ve been hooked on fiction since grade school. And I’ve always enjoyed stories that provide adventure and escape. Humor, wit and romance help, too. I try to write the same sort of stories and novels as the ones I like to read and that other women readers with similar tastes to mine like as well.

My published work includes the Cinderella, P. I. Mysteries in which a favorite fairy tale heroine has become a private investigator twenty years, three kids, and a few extra pounds after the ball. Currently the series includes Walls, a Cinderella, P. I. Novel and its sequel Wings, a Cinderella, P. I. Novel; and two short story collections: Cinderella, P. I. and Other Fairy Tale Mystery Stories and Cinderella, P. I. Around the World. Cinderella, P. I., First Case to Last, a third story collection and the last in the series, will appear later in 2015.

January Jinx is the first of twelve Calendar Mysteries. Set in Kansas City starting in 1899, these cozy historical mysteries tell the story of Minty Wilcox and Daniel Price from newly met to newly wed and beyond. Their adventures will continue in Fatal February.

Along with a dog, two cats, and my daughter, an artist, I live in a house filled with books, mostly detective fiction, just a few miles from where Minty Wilcox and Daniel Price first went on their adventures together a hundred and sixteen years ago.
