    REASON TO DIE Book Tour

    Reason To Die
    by Debbie De Louise
    Genre: Crime Mystery
    Someone is strangling disabled people in the small town of Baxter,
    Connecticut. Detective Courtney Lang and her ex-partner and ex-lover,
    wheelchair-bound Bill Thompson, are paired up again and put in charge
    of the investigation.
    During the search, Courtney uncovers information that points towards a
    connection between the murders and an unsolved series of muggings by
    a masked man, the same man who shot and disabled Bill a year ago on
    the night he proposed marriage to her.
    Complicating matters for Courtney is her guilt about Thompson’s shooting, her
    affair with her new partner, Mark Farrell, and her unresolved
    feelings over the deaths of her mother and sister who perished in a
    fire when she was away from home.
    As the deaths accrue and the “Handicapped Strangler” as the killer
    is coined by the press continues to rampage the town adding victims
    of different ages, sex and disabilities to the murder count, Courtney
    discovers a clue that could crack open the case but may put her and
    Bill’s life in jeopardy.
    My name is Debbie De Louise. I am a reference librarian at a public
    library on Long Island and the award-winning author of the Cobble
    Cove mystery series. I have a B.A. in English and an MLS in Library
    Science.
    My first novel, a paranormal romance, “Cloudy Rainbow”
    (Booklocker 2008) received an honorable mention in the Writer’s
    Digest self-published awards. I wrote that book after my beloved cat,
    Floppy, died from diabetic and liver complications. The book is
    dedicated to him, and he is featured as a character in it. I have
    recently signed with my publisher to reprint this book, and it will
    soon be available as a paperback as well as an eBook.
    My second novel, the first book of the Cobble Cove Mystery series, “A
    Stone’s Throw,” (November 2015) was published by Limitless
    Publishing, LLC. It is the story of a widowed librarian who visits
    her husband’s hometown and finds a new love with the town’s newspaper
    publisher but also discovers some alarming truths about her husband’s
    death and its connection to the publisher and his family. Along with
    a variety of characters, there is also a cat and dog who play minor
    but interesting roles in the novel. The second Cobble Cove Mystery,
    “Between a Rock and a Hard Place” was released in October
    2016 by Solstice Publishing and a reprint of “A Stone’s Throw”
    with an additional chapter was published in March, 2017. The third
    book of the series, “Written in Stone,” was released in
    April, 2017. I’ve also published a romantic comedy novella, “When
    Jack Trumps Ace.”
    I’m currently working on a standalone mystery, Reason to Die, and have
    several other writing projects planned for 2018 including a new cozy
    mystery series along with the fourth volume of the Cobble Cove
    mysteries.
    I’m a member of International Thriller Writers, Sisters-in-Crime, the Cat
    Writer’s Association, and Long Island Authors Group and have
    published articles in Cats Magazine and Catnip (Tufts University
    Veterinary Newsletter). I won the Glamour Puss special award from
    Hartz Corporation for my Catster.com article, “Brushing your cat
    for bonding, beauty, and better health,” (June, 2016). My short
    mystery, “Stitches in Time” was published in the Cat Crimes
    Through Time Anthology, (1999). I have also published several other
    short stories of various genres in Solstice anthologies. I live on
    Long Island with my husband, daughter, and our cat, Stripey.
