"It takes a tightrope artist of a writer to create chapters that successfully delve into a killer's thoughts without revealing his identity in the process, but Sugarek achieves this with a dance of introspection that reveals a killer's religious rituals and the emotional turmoil..." Midwest Book Review of the Angel of Murder
My web site and BLOG (which now reaches over a half of a million viewers on social media) are dedicated to the art of writing and story telling. Sharing my ideas, offering other writers help and encouragement. And 'chatting' with other (best selling) authors about their writing process.
I work hard to continue to engage your interest and share valuable topics, with you, about writing. The art of writing is a long process and in my experience has taken me a whole lifetime. I am still learning every day. What I do know is that to be any good at writing, YOU must write!
In addition to my frequent posts, once a month a best-selling author will share their writing world with us in an interview. Don't miss it!
Saturday I will post a nostalgic piece about my years living in the Vieux Carré of New Orleans. Full time actress, part time day job (gotta pay the rent) radio and TV talent. Hookers, mob bosses, millionaires all supporting our live theatre productions. Rehearsing in the cellar of the Performing Arts Building, where little beady red eyes watched from the shadows. So we will start with a little poetry to wet your curiosity:
Standing outside the gate,
eager to say goodbye, remembering
all the reasons to say hello
New Orleans, that witchy woman, whose song is
loved and never forgotten, whose taste
lingers on the tongue forever.
Where love bloomed on a rain slick night
Now, as I bend to kiss the powdered, rouged
cheek, my nostrils are assailed by
the sweet odor of rotting flesh eaten......
In Book 5 in the series The World of Murder, Detectives O'Roarke and Garcia have a cold case dumped on their desk. Despite their objections that they 'don't do cold cases' their Commander tells them that they do now since the new Mayor has asked for them. Three years earlier the mayor's brother-in-law was murdered and the case was never solved. The cold case plunges the murder cops into the world of television and competitive cooking shows and their pick of suspects three years cold.

Review: "....Trisha Sugarek gives you "permission" to scribble down ideas and not have to write the great American novel every time you put pen to paper. In the first couple of pages, she gets you going with examples and encouragement and she makes you realize that while writing is work, it's not impossible work...." D.Johnson
