When asked what it feels like to be the number one bestselling author on the Amazon KDP program author Madison Johns stated, “I’m shaking right now. I can’t believe this is happening! I left yesterday afternoon and spent the night with a friend. When I got home this morning the only email I ran across was from a writer who reminded me my interview was posted on her blog today. I followed the link and my air was sucked from my lungs.”
Ranking in the top one hundred of millions of books is a feat not many authors experience, hitting number one is like winning the writer’s lottery.
Johns has worked in the medical field for five years while on her off hours she polishes her craft. For four years she studied, wrote and rewrote several novels. Johns novel, Armed and Outrageous, is a cozy mystery packed with enough high humor to keep the reader laughing out loud.
Armed and Outrageous is her first best seller, but she doesn’t plan to stop there. She has been snatched up by a publishing house and there are already plans for the release of her next novel, The Bone Extractor in October.
Description: Agnes Barton is not your typical senior citizen living in Tadium, MI, on the shores of Lake Huron. She drives a red hot Mustang, shops at Victoria’s Secret, rankles local police officials, and has a knack for sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong.
What does a murder that happened forty-three years ago have to do with missing tourist Jennifer Martin? Agnes makes it her personal mission to find out, and she’s not letting the fact she’s seventy-two get in the way. Butting heads with Sheriff Clem Peterson is something she’s accustomed to, but lately Clem seems to be acting even more strange, making Agnes wonder what he may be hiding ala the Martin disappearance.
Agnes’ partner in crime, Eleanor Mason tags along, Watson to her Holmes. Together, they unearth clues. If only Eleanor would behave, as although lovable, she has a knack for getting into trouble by tangling with her rival, Dorothy Alton, or flirting with anyone—male or female—and gossiping! She’s incorrigible, but she does carry a Pink Lady revolver in her purse, one that has proved useful at times.
Life for Agnes and Eleanor is shaken up when Agnes’ former boss and secret crush comes to Tadium. Before long, the lady sleuths have more on their hands to contend with as goons roll into town and bullets begin to fly.
