Special Guest: Syda Gonzales - The Glass House by Nancy Lynn Jarvis
She also was upset for too long after her boyfriend Rick dumped her. I thought he was a loser and she was better off without him. I tried to fix her up with a number of unattached men, but she didn’t like any of my suggestions. Pat’s like that. She thinks she knows what’s good for her better than I do. She’s wrong, of course, because I’m highly sensitive and perceptive and do know what’s best for her.
I hadn’t yet discovered what a great writer I was when Pat got downsized. At the time, I thought perhaps glass was going to be my medium and had registered for a glass forming class taught by the famous Garryn Monteith. I pulled a few strings and gotPat into the sold-out class, as well. You’ll never believe what happened in class: our instructor was murdered!
That’s why Pat is out detecting today. She was hired by an attorney she knew to help prepare a defense for the man wrongly accused of Garryn Monteith’s murder. She started her own private investigation company, PIP Inc., which stands for Private Investigator Pat―isn’t that cute―and is hard at work. She’s going to be good at her new career. She figured out how the murder was committed and figured out how to work the case right away―with a little help from me―and when she solves the crime, I’m going to write about it.
Syda Gonzales. Remember that name.

About Nancy Lynn Jarvis
After earning a BA in behavioral science from San Jose State University, she worked in the advertising department of the San Jose Mercury News. A move to Santa Cruz meant a new job as a librarian and later a stint as the business manager for Shakespeare/Santa Cruz at UCSC.
Nancy’s work history reflects her philosophy: people should try something radically different every few years, a philosophy she applies to her writing, as well. She has written seven Regan McHenry Real Estate Mysteries; a stand-alone novel “Mags and the AARP Gang” about a group of octogenarian bank robbers; edited “Cozy Food: 128 Cozy Mystery Writers Share Their Favorite Recipes” and a short story anthology, “Santa Cruz Weird;” and even done a little insider’s book, “The Truth About Hosting Airbnb” about her first year as a host.
“The Glass House” is the first book in a planned series of PIP Inc. Mysteries. Now she’s trying to figure out when to work on another series she’d love to do called “Geezers with Tools” about two older handymen who will solve mysteries in the course of doing their work, and setting up writer retreats at her house.
