Shawn Reilly Simmons


Shawn Reilly Simmons, author, editor, and member of the Malice Domestic Board of Directors, joins me to talk about the 7th book in her Red Carpet Catering Mysteries, Murder on the Chopping Block. Learn what inspired her to create her culinary cozy series. We also chat about the differences between writing novels, writing short stories, and editing anthologies and how a chance visit to a Malice Domestic conference led to more than a decade on the Board. Discover how her name is pronounced in Mexico, what her favorite culinary competition show is, and what our favorite true crime podcasts are. (Spoiler: mine’s Small Town Murder.)
