Blog Tour Character Guest Post for The Glass House by Nancy Lynn Jarvis

Character Guest Post by Pat Pirard

You never know when life is going to turn upside down, do you?

My name is Pat Pirard, the woman who had everything figured out. I was about to turn thirty-five and leading a perfect life. Okay, a few months ago my long term boyfriend dumped me, but I was over that. I was broke, but my dream car, a sunburst yellow Mercedes convertible, was parked in my garage so my self-imposed poverty was worth it. I had the best job in the world, Santa Cruz County Law Librarian, where I met fascinating members of the legal community and helped them with complex research that challenged my mind and kept me entertained. But in the space of one day―one day―I was downsized out of my job and in danger of having to become a couch surfer with my dog and cat in tow.

My best friend, Syda Gonzales, decided I needed a distraction before I got down to the serious job of figuring out how to regain control of my life so she enrolled us in a glass forming class. She’s an aspiring artist who hasn’t found her muse yet and she thought glass artistry just might be it. She had fantasies of us creating together and becoming a famous team…she has lots of fantasies. We never found out if she was right, though, because as he was giving his final day of lectures, our instructor was murdered in front of the entire class.

That’s when my life took another flip. A highly eligible and handsome attorney with pre-mature salt-and -pepper hair that… Where did I leave my fan? I get pink cheeks just thinking about him. Well, he hired me to help him mount a defense for his client who was charged with the murder. So now I’m the CEO of my own company, PIP Inc., and am going to work as a private investigator. How the murder worked had everyone stumped for a while, but I’m off to a rousing start: I figured out how it was done! That must mean that no one needs to know I don’t have a PI license. I have business cards introducing me a Private Investigator Pat. Surely that counts for something.

About Nancy Lynn Jarvis

Nancy Lynn Jarvis was a Santa Cruz, California, Realtor® for more than twenty years before she fell in love with writing and let her license lapse. After earning a BA in behavioral science from San Jose State University, she worked in the advertising department of the San Jose Mercury News. A move to Santa Cruz meant a new job as a librarian and later a stint as the business manager for Shakespeare/Santa Cruz at UCSC. Nancy’s work history reflects her philosophy: people should try something radically different every few years, a philosophy she applies to her writing, as well. She has written seven Regan McHenry Real Estate Mysteries; a stand-alone novel “Mags and the AARP Gang” about a group of octogenarian bank robbers; edited “Cozy Food: 128 Cozy Mystery Writers Share Their Favorite Recipes” and a short story anthology, “Santa Cruz Weird;” and even done a little insider’s book, “The Truth About Hosting Airbnb” about her first year as a host. “The Glass House” is the first book in a planned series of PIP Inc. Mysteries. Now she’s trying to figure out when to work on another series she’d love to do called “Geezers with Tools” about two older handymen who will solve mysteries in the course of doing their work, and setting up writer retreats at her house.
