Okay, I'll start with an admission. The picture isn't really me, except in the sense that it's the way I like to picture myself. You can see what I really look like, if you're so inclined, at my website, http://www.kmccullough.com.

My first novel was published in 1990 by Avalon Books, which is now part of Amazon. Since then I've had about a dozen books published by various publishers. I'm not good at sticking to one genre, so my books are variously mysteries, romantic suspense, fantasy, and paranormal.

I'm in the process of digitizing and republishing all of my backlist and adding a few new works as well.

Most of the time, Heather McNeil loves her job as assistant to the director of the Washington DC Market Show Center. Because she’s a good listener and even better at solving problems, her boss assigns her to handle a lot of the day to day issues that arise during the shows, exhibits, and conferences being held there.

The Business Technology Exposition at the Market Center is set to open with a major new product announcement from one of the biggest companies in the computer electronics business. Before that event, though, the president of industry-leader MegaComp has a very public argument with a man who accuses the company of stealing the concept for a technical process from him.

Heather witnesses the argument, along with security officer Scott Brandon, an ex-cop and her romantic interest. Because it appears the disagreement will end peacefully, they don’t intervene, and in fact, the accuser does walk away with nothing more than harsh words exchanged. The new product announcement goes off without a hitch.

But when the accuser returns a phone call from Heather, she becomes an unwilling audience to his murder and later finds his body in a private section of an exhibitor’s booth.

Heather is more than happy to leave the investigation to the police, but she’s the person everyone talks to and she soon learns more than she wanted to know about the victim and all the people who really didn’t like him very much.

But the Gifts and Home Decorations trade show, the biggest show of the year at the center, is a week-long nightmare. This year’s version is being worse than usual.

Despite opposition from some of the exhibitors, her employers, and the police, Heather seeks to expose the killer before the show ends. To solve the mystery, she will havehas to risk what’s most important to her and be prepared to fight for answers, her job, and possibly her life.
