With a fantastic cast of characters and a story filled with humor and murder you won’t be able to put it down.

~Shelley’s Book Case
Tonya Kappes had me laughing from the opening pages of Southern Fried…I love these books because the whodunit isn’t all that obvious. Just when I think I’ve figured it out, a new wrench is thrown into the mix and I’m back to square one.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
Full of Tonya’s sass and spirit, this series keeps up a strong pace and keeps Sheriff Kenni on her toes.

SynopsisIn the South, it’s better when the food is fried and the secrets kept buried…After the dead body of a beloved Cottonwood resident is found tangled up in an electric fence, Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a hunch that somethin’ ain’t right. Her investigation heats up with a fierce cook-off competition, a euchre game where the intel is sweeter than the brownies, and a decades old family recipe that may just be the proof in the pudding.The icing on the cake: Kenni is fighting an attraction to her recently sworn-in deputy sheriff, and election season is hot on her tail. When the killer comes after who she holds most dear, even her poppa’s ghostly guidance might not be enough to keep her and her own out of the frying pan.

Where are you from? I’m born and bred in Kentucky!
Tell us your latest news? I’m currently working my way through a ten book deal with Henery Press, Kenni Lowry Mystery Series. I also just signed a new Southern Baking cozy mystery contract with Crooked Lane . SQUEEE!!!
When and why did you begin writing? Years ago I used to escape into books after I’d gone through a divorce. My love of reading grew from that. Years later, married with four young boys, I was told that I could tell a good story. Telling a story is so different than writing a story….but I did it. I wanted to write something where ONE person could escape after a great day, bad day, and enjoy a little me time.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?That’s a hard one. It wasn’t until years later and multiple publications when I made the USA Today Bestseller list with two separate books in one week.
What inspired you to write your first book?My husband! He’s so great.
Do you have a specific writing style? Southern charm.
How did you come up with the title? The publisher and I came up with a play on word southern style.
Be sure to check out the exclusive website for the Kenni Lowry Mystery Series where you can take a virtual vacation in Cottonwood. Check out the recipes and adult coloring sheets! There’s so much fun in Cottonwood. Click here!
