Lettuce Read Wills by Una TiersThis short and sweet book of blogs looks at Wills of the rich and famous and teaches us they are just like us. See the prescience Elvis displayed, and the error Lucille Ball probably made.
This book also contains excerpts of the Una Tiers mysteries as part of my evil plan to lure readers over to the dark side to read a few samples of the mysteries of Una Tiers.
This book is a hybrid, it reports on real life and has samples from mysteries. The connection? Real life gives us material to write fiction.
