Los Angeles, CA, June 17, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- A Corpse in the Soup, the first in the new Silver Sisters Mystery series, was released in CD, cassette and MP3 audio formats by Books in Motion.
Reader Stephanie Brush brings the Silver Sisters, Goldie Silver and Godiva Olivia DuBois, and their way out family to life as she reads the unabridged version of "A Corpse in the Soup." This cozy mystery marks real life sisters Morgan St. James’ and Phyllice Bradner’s first fiction novel and is the first in the new Silver Sisters Mystery Series. This over-the-top escapade features identical twin silver-haired Mae West look-alikes as different as Goodwill and Gucci, and their eighty-year-old mother and uncle, former vaudeville magicians.
As Stephanie Brush gets into character or should I say characters, she takes the reader on a zany romp through the world of professional chefs who will do anything to win the coveted Gourmet Gladiators Tournament. Maybe even murder!
Twins Godiva, an advice columnist from Beverly Hills and Goldie, an aging hippie from Alaska get into very hot water when one of the chefs is found face down in a bowl of bouillabaisse with a knife in his back during the Greatest Gourmet Gladiators Tournament. The Silver Sisters embark on a quest to find the real killer and uncover much more than poisonous mushrooms and cooking pranks. Morgan and Phyllice say members of their fun-loving wacky family inspired many of their characters.
Morgan has written published magazine articles about interior design, human-interest, dementia, travel and barter. She earned recognition for two Writer’s Digest Contest Feature Article submissions. Her story Shopping for Dancing Shoes is the lead story in Chicken Soup for the Shopper’s Soul. Miracles on Horseback, a true story about a couple who create what some call miracles every day, is available as an Amazon Short.
Phyllice, has won four Alaska Press Club Awards and two national awards for newsletter publications. She is the co-author of a guidebook, Touring Juneau, and the Juneau Centennial Cookbook. She was a political print consultant on four gubernatorial races and five candidates for U.S. Senate. She also produced numerous informational pieces for Fortune 500 companies. Her whimsical cat and dog etchings are displayed in galleries in McMinneville, Oregon and Juneau, Alaska.
Morgan and Phyllice recently presented a workshop entitled From Novice to Novelist at the Las Vegas Writers Conference where they shared lessons learned along the way. Morgan participates in writers’ panels at libraries in Southern California and Las Vegas and says, “One of the main things I learned is what works in magazine articles does not work in fiction.” Phyllice says she learned that her greatest marketing tool is an “A-Type” sister.
