NEW - How Now Purple Cow - A Bogey Man Mystery

Mystery Writer, Marja McGraw, writes mysteries which are light reading with a little humor.


McGraw writes two series, one involving a young, female private investigator named Sandi Webster, and one featuring a dead ringer for Humphrey Bogart named Chris Cross. The books are light with a touch of humor. Asked why she chose this type of story, McGraw said she wants to entertain her readers, and she feels humor is the way to go. “While there’s nothing funny about murder, you can find humor in the people solving the crime and the situations they become involved in. I’m hoping readers will find the Sandi Webster series and the Bogey Man mysteries to be a memorable experience.”


Born and raised in Southern California, Marja worked in both criminal and civil law enforcement and calls on her experience when writing.  She eventually relocated to Northern Nevada where she worked for the Nevada Department of Transportation.  Marja also lived in Oregon where she worked for the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and owned her own business. She briefly spent time in Wasilla, Alaska.

McGraw and her husband now live in Arizona, and they say they enjoy life in the desert. "Bullhead City has really become home, and the city even made a cameo appearance in Prudy's Back! and Old Murders Never Die. I've set it up so two of my characters lived there and have now moved to Kingman, and from time to time I can involve Arizona in my mysteries."

Books include A Well-Kept Family Secret, Bubba's Ghost, Prudy's Back!, The Bogey Man, Old Murders Never Die, Death Comes in Threes, What Are the Odds?, Bogey Nights, Bogey's Ace in the Hole, They Call Me Ace, Awkward Moments, How Now Purple Cow and Mysteries of Holt House.
