Molly Rosenblum, retired cartoonist (readers will lol at the 29 cartoons scattered throughout the book), is an expert at not getting over the loss of her husband, Seymour. But Molly’s funk is rudely interrupted when she finds herself suspected of committing murder in the handicapped dressing room at Marshalls.
Molly’s mood is strangely improved by the prospect of being tossed into the back of a Delray Beach police car. Certainly, her renewed joie de vivre has nothing to do with handsome but arrogant, annoying, clothes horse Harold Golden, who insists on helping her solve the case.
What genre is this?
Well, you could simply call it a comedic cozy mystery and you wouldn’t be wrong, but anyone who’s been watching trends will notice right away that it has all the traits of the newest hot genre–boomer lit.
What kind of readers will it appeal to?
The Secret Life of Molly Rosenblum will appeal to anyone who loves to laugh, enjoys a good mystery and has ever eaten a whole box or Oreos while sitting in her car outside of Walgreens.
Is that something Molly likes to do? You’d best tell us about her.
Molly Rosenblum keeps her troubles under wraps through a steady diet of remedies such as compulsive shopping, cleaning and eating, and presents a smiling face to others. Most people who meet her immediately feel she is a kindred spirit; Each of her friends thinks of Molly as her best friend, but none of them truly knows her.
In spite of the fact that the book’s plot centers around two murders that Molly tries to solve, the title really refers to Molly’s ‘Secret Life’–the life of her heart and mind.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, but sadly was never any good at stick ball. I am a graduate of City College of New York, where I studied economics–go figure. I came to my writing career later in life, shifting gears and reinventing myself at the age of forty.

As you may or may not know, it gets very hot here in Florida during the month of September, so I was considering a late-night dip in the ocean, followed by a cup of Earl Grey and a few pieces of Godiva chocolate. I hope not to eat the whole box, but unfortunately, I probably will.
Oh, wait, did you mean in my writing? I guess that would be Molly #2.
