Lisa M Caretti Day 1

Good Morning folks.   For today and the next four days we will welcome Lisa Caretti and learn about her and her books.

First why don't you tell us a little about yourself?

 I am a wife and mother of three children. I am also the co-founder of a non-profit organization called The Healing Nest which supports women with cancer and a manager with Arbonne International.

Newest release?

 The Last to Know is my latest release.

What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance,sex, blood and guts?

Both Whistle in the Dark and The Last to Know are suspense/thrillers that move quickly and keep 
you guessing.

Do you have a favorite character in your stories? Who? and Why?

I love Alice in The Last to Know. She is eccentric and surprisingly knowledgeable. I wish she was my neighbor. 

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:

In The Last to Know, the story takes place in a small town called Chester which was my nickname in 
high school. When I started writing the book I just threw that name in there for fun thinking I would
change it later. It just sort of stuck and I left it in. My friends love seeing that when they read the 

Has there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories?

I have always loved to read. I try new authors as well as long time favorites. 

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?

Write a review. Please. Say anything. 

Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?

Just keep writing a little every day.

Do you have a favorite author? If yes, what draws you to that person’s work?

I love Sue Grafton. I feel like Kinsey is a good friend of mine by now. 

Can you remember one of the first things you wrote? What makes it memorable?

I wrote short stories in school but the first “real” thing that I wrote was Whistle in the Dark. 

Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your work?

I pull ideas from things I have heard about, read about or have seen. When I sit down to write, the 
story is there for me. 

Do you have any other interesting hobbies, pets or stories you would like to share?

I love nature walks and I adore animals. I have two rescue dogs which I love to pieces. I am also a Reiki Master. 

Favorite places to travel or visit? 

Cabo, Mexico. I go each year for two weeks.

And now, before you go, how about a snippet from your book that is meant to intrigue and tantalize 
us:( Include links to where we can find your work)


She was an ancient nuisance. An interfering old bat that they should have dealt with years

Pleased with himself, he attempted to stuff her thick, wrinkled body into a battered trunk
he was fortunate enough to have stumbled upon while exploring the forgotten treasures of her

He considered his next step carefully as he wiped at the sweat that had begun to drip
freely from his brow onto his shirt sleeve and let out an exasperated sigh.

Perhaps if he would have thought this out a little further in advance he might have
devised a more suitable plan, but whatever. The deed was done. He killed her and he would
simply have to deal with it. The others will thank him.

At least now, for once, he could reminisce through his old stomping grounds at his leisure
and not have to worry about her tiresome meddling and unending interfering.

The peace and quiet would be a welcomed luxury.

He sucked in an oppressive, dusty hot breath and held it in for a moment in appreciation
before slowly lowering his eyes back down to the blob at his feet.

She was gone but still within the window of passing that he actually considered playing
the game with her.

For old times’ sake he told himself.

But she was old and nasty with thick yellow toenails, so in the end decided against it. He
had to use his time wisely plus it would hardly be the same without the others.

He tapped his foot loudly on the attic’s bare wooden planks while he plotted.  Her
oversized remains would have to fit in that chest one way or another, even if things got a little

He wondered how much time would pass before anyone would even notice she was
