Introducing new author, Makenzi Fisk

It's a joy to find a new writer to work with... 

Makenzi joined my writers' group back in the fall of 2103, and I have had the pleasure of working with her and being one of the first readers for her manuscript. She brings not only writing skill but her considerable knowledge as a former police officer to the story. Her first book (shown below) is on the market, and she assures me that volume two is being written. Good thing too. I enjoyed the first one and I'm looking forward to the second.

Makenzi Fisk 

Makenzi grew up in a small town in Northwestern Ontario. She spent much of her youth outdoors, surrounded by the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield.
Moving west, she became a police officer with experience in patrols, covert operations, plainclothes investigation, communications and forensic identification. Within the policing environment, she transitioned to internet and graphic design. She now works for herself.

In her novels, Makenzi draws on her knowledge of the outdoors, policing and technology to create vivid worlds where crime, untamed wilderness and intuition blend.  Her novels’ characters are competent women who solve crime using skill and a little intuition.

Currently Makenzi resides in Calgary with her partner, their daughter, and assorted furry companions. 

It's even better when a first time author writes a good book...

Makenzi's First Release - Just Intuition 

 A woman disappears when a shadowy figure turns to murder in a northern Minnesota town. Years later, the murderer strikes again, and an elderly woman burns to death in a fiery blast.

Small town cop Erin Ericsson doesn’t believe it was an accident. With the help of a quirky fellow officer, she defies the investigating detective to pursue the case on her own.

Her girlfriend Allie begins to suffer terrifying visions with a connection to the malevolent presence. Enlisting her reluctant cooperation, Erin struggles to interpret the meaning of the cryptic dreams.

Her police work and Allie’s uncanny insight lead them through unforgiving back woods and face to face with evil. Together they use their skill, and a bit of intuition, to unmask the culprit behind an escalating series of deadly crimes.
