Today Andie Sullivan is visiting Ascroft, eh? to tell us about The Killer Outdoors, the latest novel in the Southwest Exposure mystery series.
Welcome, Andie. Let’s get started, shall we?
Tell us about the novel that you live inside. Is it part of a series? If so, please tell us about the series too.
Hello Everybody. My name is Andie Sullivan and I’m the main character in THE KILLER OUTDOORS. When I’m not solving clues to the latest murder mystery in my hometown of Bushwhack, New Mexico, I’m running an adventure tour company with my brother. Normally, I’m either taking tourists rafting or hiking. Unfortunately for me, my ex-husband was recently found dead and what do you know…I’m the prime suspect. And of all things Sheriff Zac Mars thinks I could possibly be involved when I used to babysit him. That’s whole another can of worms.
But all that aside, I don’t plan on going down for a crime I didn’t commit. I plan on solving the investigation so I can continue to run my adventure company, and maybe sniff around another case or two in upcoming Southwest Exposure Mysteries.
Does the writer control what happens in the story or do you get a say too? I’d say Mrs. Linton mostly controls the story, but sometimes I throw her a curveball. Like that time the sheriff found me in the shower ready to clobber him with a toilet plunger. You’ll have to read the book to understand. It’s not what you think.
How did you evolve as the main character? My ex-husband is found dead and I have to prove my innocence.
Do you have any other characters you like sharing the story with? If so, why are you partial to them? Easy. My brother Kyle. We’re close and each other’s only family in town. Kyle always has my back even if he sometimes thinks I should mind my own business regarding homicide investigations in town. But he’s cool with it. He’s my brother.
What’s the place like where you find yourself in this story? Wonderful weather year round, with breathtaking views of the mountains. We have lots of hiking trails, rivers to fish in and fun campgrounds. There’s also a chipmunk village where you can visit with the cute furry creatures and feed them.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell readers about you and the book? Not a purse gal, but I do love a good fanny pack. And if you like humorous, thrilling adventures than you must get The Killer Outdoors and dive into a new cozy mystery series.
Thank you for answering my questions, Andie, and good luck to you and your author, Jodi Linton, with The Killer Outdoors, the latest book in the Southwest Exposure mystery series.

About Jodi Linton: I’m just a girl from Texas, minus the big hair…and oh, yeah, a horse. My crew consists of two kiddos, one which inherited my makeup addiction, and a husband still living out his garage band dreams, but in our closet next to my shoe collection.
I love to hang out with my readers, discussing books, recipes and just everyday shenanigans. I got started in the romance community, which you might know a few of my books from there. Now, I’m all about the cozies…and the coffee. Yeah, can’t forget that.
