The Student in Classroom 6
This is my third novel. In writing it, I drew from my teaching experience at the University of Georgia and the actual fall of a giant magnolia across the street from our house in Athens. It was released in 2022 and placed second in the Suspense Short category of the 2023 National Excellence in Story Telling (NEST) contest.
Although a faculty member has been killed on campus and the murderer is still at large, English instructor Katherine Holiday never suspects the criminal might be one of her students. In fact, there’s a man in her adult evening class she wishes she could know better.
Seeing no need for a college degree, Tyler McHenry, a partner in his father’s successful tree service, writes fiction for his own pleasure. No one at the University needs to know his personal reasons for enrolling in a first-year composition course. Still, he finds himself fascinated by the pretty teacher, who believes his writing should be published.
"With a killer on the loose and her job on the line, Katherine Holiday knows better than to act on her feelings for the sexy, intelligent student in the back of her college classroom. But the attraction is too strong to ignore. The Student in Classroom Six is a fast-paced romance with a dangerous edge that is easy to read and hard to put down.” – Lori Duffy Foster, author of the Lisa Jamison Mystery Series
“Smart characters; steamy romance; a dash of danger: the perfect recipe for a saucy, suspenseful read!”—Jon Jefferson, author of Wave of Terror
