Cheryl Bradshaw has just released her thrilling debut novel, BLACK DIAMOND DEATH.
Enter the world of Sloane Monroe in Black Diamond Death...
A SKIER CRASHES
On the slopes of Park City, Utah’s newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. The victim, Charlotte Halliwell, collided with a tree as she schussed her way to the bottom of the hill. But what if her death wasn’t an accident at all––what if she was murdered?
A SISTER IS ON A MISSION
In Black Diamond Death, Audrey Halliwell faces a problem: finding someone who believes her story.
Enter Private Investigator Sloane Monroe.
When Audrey marches into Sloane’s office with claims her sister’s death was no accident Sloane is skeptical at first, but agrees to take the case. With little to go on, she questions the people in Charlotte’s life and discovers Parker Stanton, a jilted ex-fiancé with plenty to hide, and as the son of a prominent businessman, he will go to any lengths to protect his secrets.
A SECOND BODY IS FOUND
Just as Sloane feels she's close to solving the case she stumbles on another dead body and is forced to re-examine the clues from the beginning, but she must tread lightly. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, her life is in danger and her every move is being tracked. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?
BLACK DIAMOND DEATH is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.
Born and raised in Southern California, Cheryl Bradshaw became interested in writing at a young age. "As a child I made up stories for my sister. The most vivid centered around a boy and a girl who received a piece of gum for Halloween, and when they chewed it, they were transposted to a magical land where they were granted unlimited wishes." In grade school Cheryl remembers reading the stories of Judy Blume. This was something her teacher was concerned about since she was reading at a level much higher than her own, but Cheryl didn't allow that to dissuade her.
In High School, Cheryl signed up for AP English and Creative Writing and discovered not only a love for books, but a passion for writing short stories and poems. Her poetry was published in the schools Looking Glass. After graduating, she attended college where she first realized her dream to write suspense novels, but it would be almost two decades before she put pen to paper. In the meantime, Cheryl pursued other interests - earning a Montessori degree, obtaining a license in real estate and working as a copy editor for ten years. Being an editor gave her the nudge she needed to get back into writing.
In 2009 Cheryl wrote her first novel, Black Diamond Death (the first book in her Sloane Monroe series). "The first book is a laid back cozy mystery - but it still provides plenty of twists. My next book is a thriller and a lot darker." Sinnerman, the second book in the series, is currently being written and leads Sloane on a search for a serial killer where she's forced to face a past she's tried hard to forget.
When she's not hard at work writing her next novel, Cheryl is an avid reader and loves to travel. "Every place I visit offers inspiration in one form or another which I draw from when I'm writing. I chose Park City as Sloane's humble abode because I lived there and have a fondness for the quaint little town which I visit often." She currently resides in Wyoming with her husband and their three children.
