Tonawanda News — Growing up she never had a strong interest in crime fiction, but somehow found herself drawn to the genre when she first began to seriously put pen to paper.
“It’s just what flew from my fingers. You really have good and evil when you talk about a police novel and I can work with that and enjoy it. Anything can happen,” Laughing said. “The evil can be as evil as it can be and the good can be as good as it can be.”
But it’s not just crime fiction that captures Laughing’s imagination; she’s also a voracious reader of romance novels and is currently putting together a series of stories she’s written into a time-travel themed romance novel.
And while Laughing won’t commit 100 percent to writing more books for the “Closer Than a Brother” series, she’s also hesitant to rule out the possibility.
“There is definitely a possibility for more,” she said, though with one book being released this month, another next month and yet a third currently in the works, there may be no reason to hurry.
“Closer Than a Brother” is available for sale at Talking Leaves Books, Laughing’s website, www.laughingalltheway.net and a book signing Dec. 22 at the Festival of Lights at the Erie County Fairgrounds. “Beyond the Call of Duty” is scheduled to be released before the end of the month.IF YOU GO • WHAT: Book signing by author Christy Laughing • WHEN: 5:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday • WHERE: Festival of Lights at the Erie County Fairgrounds • MORE INFORMATION: Visit www.laughingalltheway.net.
