If you've never clicked on the links in the right-hand column of my other blog, you may not know about my wife's not-so-secret identity.
A couple of years ago Wendy founded The Ski Diva, a site that's become the internet's premiere destination for women who ski. With well over a thousand registered members, and close to thirty thousand unique visitors a month, she's managed to bring together a huge and devoted community of active and enthusiastic women from all around the world. She also blogs, when she's not out on the slopes.
Now she's taken the Ski Diva someplace entirely new. She's recently signed with the Thomas Dunne imprint of St. Martin's Press for two novels—Ski Diva Mysteries—the first of which will appear in January of 2010.
Here's the synopsis:
In DOUBLE BLACK, Boston’s twenty-something Stacey Curtis ditches her cheating fiance and heads for a Vermont ski town. She’s looking for the life she’s always dreamed about, but she stumbles instead into financial intrigue, bitter family warfare, and murder. Populated with quirky characters, loaded with New England atmosphere, and starring a young woman with nerve, spunk, and a sense of humor about it all, DOUBLE BLACK is an exciting run down some treacherous mountain trails.
And here's the first line:
“When Stacey Curtis found the dead man in the bed, she knew it was time to get her own apartment.”
It's a ton of fun, and I'm so proud of her for making it happen. Meanwhile, I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel...
