Official Book Tour: People In Glass Houses

Author Tim Hemlin has returned to bring us the 3rd installment of the Neil Marshall Mysteries! In June we featured IF WISHES WERE HORSES and A WHISPER OF RAGE and now we are excited to share with you the next book called PEOPLE IN GLASS HOUSES - come join us on this tour!

Congressional candidate Chip Gunn figures he has the election in the palm of his hand. But when Gunn’s guard is stabbed during a high profile fund-raising event catered by chef and amateur sleuth Neil Marshall, all hell breaks loose.
Things only get worse when the victim vanishes and Neil’s assistant is left holding a bloody knife. Quickly, a lethal mystery unravels and Neil and his friends learn that people in glass houses don’t throw stones. They shoot to kill . . .

Tim Hemlin is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, having studied with poets Charles Simic and Mekeel McBride.  He has published in poetry journals, anthologies, and magazines--most notably in Ellery Queen.  Currently he has six published novels, two short stories and is included in an anthology.

By day he is an educator; however after teaching ELA for 22 years he decided to put his master's degree to work and is now a high school counselor.  In addition, he is an avid marathoner, fly-fisherman, and outdoorsman.  He lives just outside Houston, Texas with his wife Valerie, two dogs and a cantankerous cat.

~Author Interview~
What are you most afraid of?
1.  I'm most afraid of losing people close to me.  It's happened.  Enough said.

If you had one wish, what would it be?
2.  Once upon a time I would've wished to write a bestseller.  I always wanted to open the New York Times Book Review and see my name at the top of the list.  Now I wish I could pick up the phone any time, call and speak with my best friend.

What do you like best about yourself?
3.  I'm patient, care about people, and I'm loyal to a fault.

What do you like least about yourself?
4.  I always have to know what's going on.  I don't leave well enough alone.  There are some who would also say I have commitment issues . . .

What do you think other people think of you?
5. He's a nice guy, but who died and made him boss?
