These cheer moms are not content to sit on the sidelines.

Abby Winters is not your typical cheer mom. She doesn’t have time to micromanage her daughter’s competitive cheer group.
She’s got her business, Scoops Ice Cream Shop, to run.

But when a rival team’s coach turns up dead and all signs point to murder, Abby wants to make sure her daughter is safe.

Can she catch the killer before they strike again or is the culprit going to murder the competition?

About L.C. Turner 

As a child, L.C. thought she would either be a truck driver (thanks to Jerry Reed in Smokey and the Bandit) or work at Taco Bell (her favorite restaurant as a child). As she grew older, she realized her talents lay in other areas, and for the last several years has been a college professor teaching business and English.

Through all her career choices, she has continued to have a passion for writing stemming from childhood, where, as an only child, she developed a vivid imagination.

She is proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing, to being on the dance team for a semi-pro basketball team, to being a mom of 2 amazing kids.

She decided to follow her dream as an author in 2009 and has worked her way up to having 5 fans (maybe 6 now). She often tells her family and friends that no one is safe from his or her ventures slipping into her books. She lives in Indiana with her husband, kids and two very spoiled dogs.

Q&A With the Author

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

 I got the idea because my daughter is a competitive cheerleader, and while there are no murders at her competitions, it can get pretty cutthroat. As I wrote the book, it was fun taking ideas from real life and putting them in the book, twisting them just a little to fit a mystery.


 Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?

 I also write clean small town romances and have a new series called Painted Acres Ranch coming out in February and a new cozy mystery called Quacks and Quarrels coming out in April. A duck takes center stage in that one.


 Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?

 Writing and being my teenaged daughter's personal assistant. She plays rugby in addition to cheer, and it's a full-time job keeping her schedule straight, but I love it. I have no intention to stop writing and have many more books up my sleeve.


 How long have you been writing?

 Since second grade, I realized that making up stories was as fun as reading them. Then in 2007, I decided to take it seriously again and I published my first book in 2009. It’s hard to believe I now have over 35 books out now.


 Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

 I want to thank everyone who reads my books. I appreciate your support and for allowing me to entertain you.
