Development Pitch

The Grand Hotel of Mackinac Island becomes the backdrop for this novel of intrigue, romance and murder. Island scenery reveals itself as an additional “character.” Glimpses of its beauty intersperse plot twists such as the discovery of several murdered victims. Who the killer is the product of amateur sleuthing and police work. The finale provides resolution of the murders and the promise of romantic interludes to come. Although the characters are a little older than usual, older people want to see shows with characters their ages and this type of story sells. "Murder She Wrote," "Diagnosis Murder," & "Matlock" are examples of shows on TV long after they ended.

About The Author

I write what I call Travel/Romance Novels for Boomers. My favorite channel on TV is Hallmark Movies and Mysteries and my latest book is written like one of their Signature Mysteries. My name is Kileen Prather and I have a BS degree in History and a Masters in Library Science. I have been a Tour Manager for over twenty years, and up until this year, I usually travel in 35 to 40 states a year. This helps me with my settings which take place all over the country as well as Canada and the Caribbean. Even if traveling is not affordable to some, people still like to read about and/or dream of visiting different locales. And from what I have been told there is a whole generation of women who like to read, watch television, or movies with characters of their ages and issues. The subplot of the different traveling locales makes my novels unique. I am on Facebook and the link is: https://www.facebook.com/kileen.prather. I also write a travel blog on Word Press with over 40 articles. A link to the Word Press articles is: https://kileenprather.wordpress.com/wp-admin/edit.php
