Just like Fit to Be Dead – Dang Near Dead is a humorous cozy mystery that takes the reader all over the place. There are different threads to the craziness that don’t seem to be connected and then all of a sudden something happens or is said and everything falls into place. ~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews
The characters are well-developed and unique, as is the context and plot line. West combines humor and mystery to create an entertaining story. ~Christa Reads and Writes

About This Author
I’ve been writing since age seven: poems back and forth with my mom. I had a real poem published in the Library Journal, Pegasus, at age fifteen. At eighteen, I wanted to study journalism and English literature, but friends who chose that college route were making minimum wage or selling lingerie. Being practical, I earned a business degree. After marriage and two children, I decided I HAD to study literature and write. I wrote non-fiction articles, a biography, and a suspense novel in 2004. That’s when whimsical Aggie Mundeen cut through the suspense, popped into my head and demanded her own series. The Aggie Mundeen mystery capers were born. Aggie must have been right: FIT TO BE DEAD is a LEFTY FINALIST 2013 for best humorous mystery, nominated by Left Coast Crime.
