My Next Blog Stop is with GK Parker is where you'll find me today and in particular if you're leaving comments along the trail in hopes of being a character name in my next Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery.

Noir is not what I write. Noir is far more gritty and things don't always turn out the way your might have hoped.

I'm not sure where I fall in the genre category. I'd first thought I was writing traditional mystery with a plot that a reader could follow along with my heroine, Deputy Tempe Crabtree.

The fact that Tempe is a Tulare county deputy seems to through her into the category of police procedurals--however, since it's Tulare County and Tempe is a resident deputy in a small town but large area, she's pretty much on her own most of the time. Her ties with the Bear Creek Indian Reservation make her the perfect person for the homicide detectives to seek out clues from any other Native Americans. The procedure is not like that police procedure in any big town.

Because I don't use bad words (maybe a mild one here and there) and though there is definitely some romance between Tempe and her husband, my books have often been called cozies.

And because there is a smattering of Native American myths,legends and culture woven into my tales, you could call my book Native American mysteries.

So a suppose you could call Invisible Path a traditional, procedural, cozy, Native American mystery. Whew! What a mouthful.

If you read it, why don't you let me know what genre category you think it belongs in.
