Welcome, Frankie Bow!

Join me in welcoming Frankie Bow this week to Highlighted Author!  Please, tell us a little about yourself and your book.

The Musubi Murder, and the rest of the Molly Barda Mysteries, are exactly the kind of book I enjoy reading.  Many of the events and characters in The Musubi Murder and the other books in the series are inspired by real life situations, which are then extrapolated to the point of humorous absurdity. (For example,what if your cash-strapped university got a huge grant from a private foundation? And then once you’d encumbered the money, the Foundation started calling the shots?)

Like my protagonist, I teach at a business school in a public university.  Unlike Molly, I’m blessed with delightful students, sane colleagues, a loving family, and a perfectly nice office chair. When someone asks me, “am I in your book?” I can honestly answer that if we’re good enough friends for them to ask me that, then the answer is probably no.

One unexpected benefit of writing and publishing fiction is that I’ve learned so much about the publishing industry.  I’m able to share this information with my students, and we’ve had some great classroom discussions about Amazon’s long game and the fate of Barnes & Noble.

The Musubi Murder is the first of the Molly Barda Mysteries.


SmalMusubiMurderSmalll town life, big academic egos, corruption, revenge, and Spam musubis! The Musubi Murder is the first campus crime novel set in Hawaii, and the perfect read for mystery lovers, Hawaii expatriates, disillusioned academics, and anyone who fancies Spam (the meat).   Professor Molly Barda is a born and bred big city girl. But thanks to the academic job market, she finds herself at remote Mahina State University, using her top-ten literature Ph.D. to teach resume-writing to business majors. Molly just wants to keep her head down and stay out of trouble until she gets tenure, so naturally she ends up getting dragged into the middle of a grisly murder case.
