Get it Now For FREE:  Fez Up 

A valuable script is missing… and with it a lot of hopes and dreams.

People’s #1 fear is public speaking… so how crazy do you have to be to try stand-up comedy?

Meet Kasey McCormick, a recently unemployed copywriter and fledgling stand-up comic. Kasey signs up for a stand-up comedy class at the renowned Center of Comedy, only to discover comedy ain’t pretty—and it’s sometimes dangerous.
When a valuable script is stolen from the club, Kasey and her classmates fall under suspicion. The club owner threatens to cancel their graduation show and worse—ban them from the club forever.

But Kasey and her new friends are determined not to let their comedy dreams disappear with the script. Even though they have less experience at solving crimes than doing stand-up comedy (is that even possible?) they set out to find and return the script—and save the show!

Fez Up is a fun and funny romp through the real and not-so-glamorous stand-up comedy world. Join Kasey and her comedy classmates in this fast read filled with plenty of laughs, twists, and turns.

The Girl in the Pork Pie Hat  

Up-and-coming comic Kasey McCormick would be happy just to qualify as a finalist in the Florida’s Funniest New Comedians Competition. But when the top contender—her comedy classmate Luke—is attacked and left in a coma, the title is up for grabs.

Old rumors flare up and the cops start looking at Kasey as Suspect #1. Winning the competition takes second place to finding the real attacker… and staying alive, of course.

The Girl in the Pork Pie Hat brings you into the competitive world of stand-up comedy, where it’s all fun and games onstage and no laughing matter behind the scenes.

“Fast-paced fun.”
“Wise-cracking dialogue.”
“One of the funnest whodunits I’ve read in a long time.”

Available Now: Top Hats and Treachery

When up-and-coming comic, Kasey McCormick, attends a highly anticipated “business of comedy” seminar in Southern California, she expects to learn, network, and showcase her comedic talents. However, her excitement quickly turns to rueful disappointment when she discovers that a private audition session, limited to only ten handpicked performers, has excluded her.

Jealousy and resentment sweep through the ranks of the excluded comics, and the event’s organizer, Juliet Hartwell, does her best to quell the discontent. But Juliet has bigger problems: Kasey soon discovers that Juliet is harboring a dark secret-she’s being blackmailed and the blackmailer has just begun to stir up trouble. Kasey’s growing reputation for solving crimes puts her at the center of the investigation. With the help of Luke Hallidade and some new comedy pals, Kasey reluctantly embarks on an increasingly dangerous journey to expose the blackmailer and release Juliet from her guilt-ridden past.

Top Hats and Treachery takes you inside the world of comedy, where everyone has at least one secret, very few people are as they seem, and the stakes take a deadly turn. Join Kasey McCormick in this fun and funny mystery as she combines her comedic talents with her investigative skills, proving that laughter and deduction can be a winning combination.
