Andi Ramos is Friday's Guest #MFRWauthor #WhoSheWasBefore

I became a writer I was a school secretary; I loved working with all the kids.
Unfortunately, the 7-3 extremely busy, but tedious day tasks didn’t give me much time to think, never

leisure reading absolutely influenced my writing, which is probably why I have

What's your latest release?
May 30th I just released my debut novel, Gumshoe Girl. It is a romantic mystery
about an amateur sleuth and how she fumbles her way through her first case
while trying to prove herself to an attractive FBI agent.
What are you working on now?
I have a couple of works in progress including
the second in the Gumshoe Girl Series. Sheagan will have her work cut out for
her as she tries to discover the truth behind alleged serial murders. I also
have a new series I am working on called the Escape Series. The first book will
be called The Pina Colada Catastrophe.
