On a lovely spring day, violence intrudes on Tess Maher’s world: her best friend, running buddy and possible soul-mate, Chick Donnelly, is shot and killed practically right before her eyes. At first glance, his death appears to be a hunting accident, but Tess and her brother, the county sheriff, quickly rule that out. Tess is all but certain that Chick is the victim of foul play. As she investigates the crime, she is plunged into a world of small Southern town scandal, greed, betrayal, and murder – all of which eventually makes her a target as she works to bring the killer to justice. But, Tess, has an edge: she communicates with the dead, and Chick helps to solve his own murder.

“No one spins a tale like Tish Owen! Who else could mix up such a delectable dish of small town scandal and nail-biting suspense, season it with just the right amount of Southern humor, and serve it up with characters so real that you want to pick up the phone and invite them over for supper? A Death on Sunday is the must-read of the summer!”
-Dorothy Morrison – Author of Lucinda’s Web and Utterly Wicked
Tish Owen is an ole Southern girl, born and bred by her very Southern mother, a Yankee father and his Irish mother. She grew up Catholic, and in the South that was a rarity. So she has a bit of a different take on the world and how things work. She spent most of her childhood running in the woods and playing make believe – a good foundation for a writer. She is blunt, funny, hard-working, sarcastic, irreverent, opinionated, polite to her elders, expects children to behave, likes dogs, cats, horses, turtles and birds – isn’t such a fan of snakes. She lives in Nashville with her husband, her ninety-seven-year-old mother, a rat terrier, 2 cats and an African Grey.
