Candie is not Always Sweet: REVISED EDITION

By Richard Nurse

Crime & mystery, Thriller, Women's fiction | Paperback, eBook


Meet the most unique detective team today. Jasper, Street-Fighter, and Me. A border collie, Sgt. Jasper, USMC Ret; a streetwise tomcat, Street-Fighter; and Me a forever 39 year-old Maggie McKenzie, USMC Ret. Together, we take on almost any case. In this case my client has asked me to tail her to see if she is being followed. It doesn’t take us long to discover that she’s up to something, and that she’s using me to cover her back. How could a college professor who appeared to be sweet be so bent on making the whole area sour? Now professionally edited to correct errors discovered in the original edition.



A Vietnam Era Veteran, my desire to write was born in my late teens. Inspired and encouraged by professionals when I spent a year as the Office Boy for the President and other Executives of Gannett News. My higher education was interrupted by a six-year stint in the Navy, where I developed my ability to spin a tale, coached by some of the best story tellers around, and where the best stories usually began with “Now this ain’t no B…S…”. Married to the same wonderful woman for almost 50 years now, I somehow managed to earn three degrees by working and going to college at night, while we raised our daughter. This daughter kept my creative juices flowing, as she required me to come up with a new story every night about one of her stuffed animals. I began to write fiction, along with poetry, as a way to battle boredom at work, as well as to fill the time spent alone, as it was my wife’s turn to complete her dream and become an Art Historian. With our daughter now married, and living her dream as an Elementary School Teacher, wife, and mother of the greatest granddaughter in the world, it was time for me to re-kindle my dream. I retired at the earliest age that I could and began to write seriously. My first published work was a feature article for a collecting magazine, titled “Addicted to Glass”. Not being a person who tolerates long waits for answers well, I read up on the world of self-publishing. I decided to give it a go. I published works under a pen name at first, and then more recently under my own name. To date, between the two, I have over thirty works of fiction ranging from short stories to novels, along with three collections of poetry, and four stand-alone poems published.
