Besides carving out a career of her own as a novelist and short story writer, Christine Matthews finds time to collaborate now and then with her husband, Robert J. Randisi.
Both roles have benefitted Perfect Crime. She is the author of what Publishers Weekly called an "impressive debut collection" of mystery fiction, Promises Made and Broken, and she has teamed up with Randisi on three cozies, the Gil and Claire Hunt mysteries. Matthews and Randisi discuss how collaborative writing is like hanging wallpaper here.
Recently Matthews launched a new series with Sapphires Aren't Forever.
Friends of the Private Eye Writers of America know her for her work with that organization. And beyond all that, she writes sometimes under her real name, Marthayn Pelegrimas. A first-rate storyteller by any name.
