The Writers Hour Creative Conversationswith Janine Bolon


Helen Starbuck-Mystery Novelist & Operating Room Nurse

Helen Starbuck started off as an operating room nurse who was proficient at handing the exact right instrument to the surgeons who were working. She moved into mystery writing after an unusual case peaked her interest and she thought, "Wow, that'd make a great mystery novel" and the Annie Collins Mystery Series was born. This is her first foray into the romanic mystery genre with her latest book, "Legacy of Secrets" that is held in rural western Colorado. I read the book, loved it and asked her to join me for an interview. What a sweetie, she said, "Yes!" Check out more of Helen's work here:


She will also let you see a character sketch of the various people in her books if you sign up for her newsletter.
