BarbaraHelene Smith, Woman of Mysteries

Like most writers, I have a story to tell. The Connie Murphy Mysteries are based on my experience as an FDA investigator, with a little imagination thrown in for good measure.

Connie Murphy is a senior drug investigator with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. She is dedicated to protecting public health and safety, but while conducting seemingly routine inspections, intrigue and danger intervene.

The paperback incorporates the first three published e-books in the Connie Murphy Mystery series: Death by Dysfunction; Sidelined by Steroids; and Trials and Tribulations. Each is a standalone book. As you proceed through the series, Connie grows as an investigator, and you get to know her personality, interests, family, love life, and more.

The Connie Murphy Mysteries and Assume Nothing (four short mysteries about ordinary women who find themselves in extraordinary situations, while searching for the truth) are available on Amazon.com. The e-books can be downloaded onto your Kindle, tablet, phone or computer, and can be read in a couple of hours while on a beach, an airplane, by the pool, next to a fire on a cold winter afternoon or sitting in a comfy chair with a steaming cup of coffee, tea or a glass of your favorite wine.

I belong to several writing groups: Lilac City Rochester Writers, Wild About Writing, Word Crafters, and Poway Pen and Ink. Some of my short stories and poetry also have been published in Horrendous Halloween Anthology; Howling Halloween Anthology, IdeaGems Magazine, The Storyteller, Adventures of the Average Woman, and Crusin' Style Magazine.

When not writing, I like to travel, hike with friends, work on genealogy, and volunteer at the local animal shelter.

Coming soon: Connie Murphy Mystery #5 – "Hide and Seek" - The Food and Drug Administration receives an anonymous tip that TanDur Pharmaceuticals, Inc., is keeping duplicate books. Senior drug investigator Connie Murphy is sent in undercover to gather information. At first, everything appears normal, except for a mysterious locked room. When Connie asks one too many questions, she is fired, kidnapped and thrown into a sex trafficking ring.
