A Distant Echo - A New Crime Series!

I have an announcement that I'm quite excited about! 

I've started a new crime thriller series, under the pen name Tara Meyers. As an introduction to this series, I have just released a short story, A Distant Echo. It's about 10,000 words, so an hour to an hour-and-a-half read.

This is a different theme than what I've written so far, under Tara Ellis. It's in the adult crime genre, so a bit more gritty than my kids and teen books! While still on the PG13 side, the situations are intense and not suitable for younger readers.

Check it out, and then sign up for the newsletter for your chance to win an advance copy of the first full length novel, Echoes of Fear, coming out January, 2017.

A Distant Echo

Criminal profiler, Chris Echo, has worked hard to become one of the elite members of Seattle's police department. Nothing, not even her personal life, gets in the way of her pursuits to track down ruthless killers. With a serial murderer on the loose, Chris struggles to find the connections necessary to close in on a suspect. While taking risks to force the answers, she unexpectedly places herself in the path of her worst nightmare.

A Distant Echo is a short story of around 10,000 words and takes the average reader one to one-and-a-half hours to read. It is a lead-in to a new, thrilling crime series called The Chris Echo Mysteries.
