Marjorie Swift Doering: Meet the Author at Indie Book Source
January 5, 2022
Go inside the literary mind of Marjorie Swift Doering as she is featured on the Meet The Authors Podcast, hosted by Rob and Joan Carter. You can watch her tonight, Wednesday, January 5 at Indie Book Source.
Marjorie Swift Doering enjoys writing in many genres but is focusing, for now, on mystery/police procedurals with her Ray Schiller Series: Dear Crossing, Shadow Tag, Targeted, Web of Silence, Remains, One Way Out, and Collision Course.
She says: “Thinking back, I suspect it was a school assignment in the sixth or seventh grade that piqued my interest in writing. We were told to write the longest run-on sentence we could create. Mine ran on for a full page and told a story to boot.
“The task was meant to be an exercise in punctuation, but I discovered that telling a story intrigued me. That’s how writing became my hobby.
“My hobby evolved into something more when I reached forty and my husband introduced me to a wonderful gadget called a computer. The prospect of dealing with perpetually clean working copies blew my mind. Long story short … got one. I’ve been writing in earnest ever since.
“In 2005, Darknight Theatrical Productions produced and performed my one-act play”Flight 419” in Chicago, Illinois. A number of my short stories were included in an anthology titled Mosaic, A Collection of Short Stories, published by Omega Publication in 2009.”
While Marjorie comes from a family of PGA and LPGA golf professionals, from an early age, her passion has been writing. A graduate of WSU, Stevens Point with a B.S. in Secondary Education, she finds her major in English and minor in Psychology very helpful in the creation of her stories.
Marjorie and her husband Denny, the parents of two wonderful, adult children, live in beautiful northwestern Wisconsin with their Springer Spaniel and three crazy, lovable cats.
In the middle of the night, Detective Ray Schiller is sent to a crime scene in downtown Minneapolis. For him, it’s business as usual… grim business. Behind a defunct dry cleaning shop, an attractive young woman has been found dead inside her car.
The victim’s past is virtually a blank slate, but more recent events in her life turn Ray’s attention in an intriguing direction.
Unfortunately, Ray’s assignment to the Libby Bates case proves fate can be as cruel as it is inevitable.
His investigation puts him in the crosshairs of an enemy he didn’t know existed.
A seed of hatred, planted ten years earlier, has grown like a cancer.
While Ray’s pursuit of a murder suspect puts him in lethal danger, it’s the consequence of a decade-old grudge that turns his world upside-down.
The accusations are false.
The hatred is real.
The consequences are terrifying.
Amy is young, beautiful, and a friend from Detective Ray Schiller’s past. She’s also a prime suspect in her husband’s murder…
Ray Schiller likes to play things by the book. But when Amy becomes a murder suspect, he refuses to stay away from the case, despite the conflict of interest.
He harries his partner Dick Waverly for information, determined to clear Amy’s name…
When his attempt to keep her safe sends him into a collision course with the true killer, Ray is forced into a race against time.
