Sweet Success - Margaret Mizushima

By Kathie Scrimgeour

Margaret Mizushima is pleased to announce that her mystery/crime novel, Killing Trail: A Timber Creek K-9 Mystery, will be published in the winter of 2016 by Crooked Lane Books. It is planned that it will be available in hardcover, e-book, and paperback.

A deputy and her four-legged partner must track down a killer that threatens their Colorado high country community.

Margaret Mizushima enjoys writing in the contemporary mystery and historical genres. After earning a master's degree in speech pathology, she practiced in a hospital and in her own rehabilitation agency. She uses her experience in communication disorders, business, and her husband's veterinary practice as fodder for her fiction and has received contest awards and short story publication. She likes reading and hiking, and she lives on a small ranch in Colorado where she and her husband raised two daughters and a multitude of animals.
