Hi there, and welcome to my website! You might know me as ALI BRANDON, the New York Times bestselling author of the Black Cat Bookshop series featuring Hamlet the cat and his human, Darla. You can read more about Hamlet and the gang HERE. Unfortunately, that fabulous series has been cancelled...but not to worry. I have two brand new Cozy Mystery series to fill the gap.


The first is the Tarot Cats Mysteries written as DIANE A.S. STUCKART. (Yep, more felines!) Book One, FOOL'S MOON, introduces Brandon and Ophelia, black cat siblings who are every bit the clever sleuths as Hamlet. You can read more about the series HERE.

My second new series is the Georgia B&B Mysteries from Crooked Lane written as ANNA GERARD. Nina Fleet and her trusty Australian Shepherd, Mattie, run a bed and breakfast inn down in Cymbeline, a quirky small town in South Georgia. Go to the Georgia B&B Mystery PAGE for more info!


If you're interested in my full publishing history, simply click on the tabs above for info about my mystery series and my historical romances written as Alexa Smart and Anna Gerard (some currently available on Kindle). And you'll find my short fiction, too, including my new Kindle ebook release, WEDDING BELLES.
