Author Spotlight- Larissa Reinhart

It is always a great day when Larissa Reinhart is my spotlight. Larissa is the author of the Cherry Tucker Mystery Series. I got to meet Larissa at Malice a couple years ago and she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met.






Larissa considers herself lucky to have taught English in Japan, escaped a ferocious monkey in Thailand, studied archaeology in Egypt, and survived teaching high school history in the US. However, adopting her daughters from China has been her most rewarding experience. After moving around the Midwest, the South and Japan, her home address is Peachtree City, Georgia.

However, in June 2015, she and her husband, daughters, and little dog, Biscuit, moved back to Nagoya, Japan, where she continues to write.

She loves small town characters with big attitudes, particularly sassy women with a penchant for trouble. The Cherry Tucker Mystery series with Henery Press begins with Portrait of a Dead Guy (August 28, 2012), a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist, a 2012 The Emily finalist, and a 2011 Dixie Kane Memorial winner. Following Portrait are Still Life in Brunswick Stew, (May 21, 2013), the 2014 Georgia Author of the Year and Silver Falchion nominee, Hijack in Abstract (November 5, 2013), and Death in Perspective (June 24, 2014) follow. The fifth Cherry Tucker mystery, The Body in the Landscape, released December 15, 2015. The Cherry Tucker novella, Quick Sketch, in the mystery anthology Heartache Motel (December 10, 2013) is a prequel to Portrait.

She was very pleased to receive the 2015 finalist medal for Georgia Author of the Year, Best Mystery, for Death in Perspective.
