  1. I learned that both Joyce and Jim are photojournalists. Being an amateur photographer myself, this really appealed to me.
    I also was caught by the Pet Mysteries, specifically The Telltale Turtle. Looks cute!

  2. I learned that Joyce and Jim wrote a book about writing. The Sharyn Howard Mystery Series sounds really interesting. I'd like to read The Last Dance.

  3. I learned that they both work for a small newspaper in Stanley County, North Carolina.
    The Renaissance Faire mysteries sound interesting.

  4. They like taking photos of sweet potatoes that look like guinea pigs and congressmen who look like sweet potatoes.
    Pretty POISON sounds cool as does the entire Peggy Lee Garden Mystery Series

    Wicked Weaves sounded interesting.
