Press Release: "NICE WORK" by Denise Weeks

NICE WORK by Denise Weeks won the Oak Tree Press First Mystery Novel contest in 2011 and is now available from Oak Tree Press at the end of July 2012.  A traditional mystery with an edge, NICE WORK is the first book in the Jacquidon "Snoop Sisters" Carroll series.  Jacquidon Carroll could've killed her boss when he downsized her--or so the police think.  Can she and her sister find the real killer in the maze of BDSM clubs and secret societies that her (ex-)boss turns out to have been involved in before it's too late?  No explicit stuff--everything's played for laughs.  It's a "Snoop Sisters" sort of romp like Anne George's Southern Sisters series.  The book will go live on Amazon and will be orderable at any bookstore (Barnes and Noble, for example) by July 27th.  Right now, there's a direct link to the pre-order special that's on the Oak Tree Press sales site--a special for $12 with free shipping.

Denise Weeks has been writing since she could hold a crayon.  She graduated from Southern Methodist University with bachelor's degrees in computer science and in mathematics (with a minor in English); she worked as a software engineer for several years.  All the while she was scribbling, scribbling.

She has worked as a software weenie, soft-serve cone maker at Dairy Queen (she perfected that little twirl on the top of the dipped cone), and secondary school math tutor.  Her favorite foods are curried yak, chocolate, and French fries. She knows (but is not telling) a plethora of alchemical and occult secrets. Homeland Security has identified her as a person of interest.  (Okay, just kidding.  She doesn't really eat curried yak.)  She is currently at work on yet another novel.

She and her husband live happily in a northern suburb of Dallas, Texas, with their two beloved pets:  a yappy Pomeranian and Denise's elderly mother.
