Around the time that I decided to go into the party business my oldest son and his cousin found a boxed murder mystery game at my in-laws and decided to have a group date and play the game. Before they handed out the invitations I asked to read the plot for research and was horrified to find it centered around a porno ring! I realized then that there are probably a lot of people like my son who unknowingly have put themselves in an uncomfortable situation when playing a murder mystery game. Obviously if you want to participate in a murder mystery game it is impossible to read through all of the information to check the appropriateness of the content without discovering the solution and spoiling the game. Motivated by this I created my own murder mysteries and I am pleased to report that all are inoffensive and appropriate for even the most conservative guests--well, except for the fact that they are about a murder!
Besides being a writer of sorts, I am also an artist. I enjoy drawing, painting and scrapbooking. Recently I discovered Adobe Illustrator and the joys of creating digital artwork. I am still learning but I have found that I can incorporate this into my party business with party printables-- DIY decorating kits with customizable banners, party favors, cupcake wrappers and more. I also love Polynesian dancing, walking, running, music (I play the piano, flute and violin), quilting and reading but most of all I love being with my family and friends.
