Becki Willis - Christmas Crimes in a Small Community
FEATURED AUTHOR - As an avid reader herself, Becki Willis likes to write about believable characters in believable situations. Many of her books stem from personal experiences. (No worries; she's never actually murdered anyone.) She's won several awards, but the real compliments come from her readers. Becki loves spending time with her family, unraveling a good mystery, traveling, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.  As our Author of the Day, Willis tells us all about her book, Christmas in The Sisters.
