Inside the Author’s Studio with Maizie Albright, Star Detective

  1. What is your favorite word?  “Hope.” No, “freedom.” I take that back. Actually, it’s “no more dieting.” Wait, that’s three words. Um, “fat free?” Hells.Wait, I’ve done this with James. What did I say? I was only nineteen . . . “Tequila?” That can’t be right.

    Got it. “Hinky.” That’s Nash’s line, but can’t I use it too?

  2. What is your least favorite word?  “Rules.” Wyatt Nash has a lot of them. They include no talking about the industry and no hugging. Which is totally ridiculous, right? Who doesn’t need a hug sometimes? Although my least favorite word should be “missing woman.” I know that’s two words, but it’s a sore point with me right now.
  3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?  Lately it’s Paul Newman eyes and a brawny back with a Jessica Rabbit tat on the left delt. Wait, what?
  4. What turns you off?  People selling me out to the paparazzi. People including my mother.
  5. What is your favorite curse word?  Schizzles.
  6. What sound or noise do you love? The donut shop below Nash Security Solutions. Schizzles, that’s a smell, not a sound. God, I’m bad at this, aren’t I?
  7. What sound or noise do you hate?  The stupid engine on the stupid dirt bike I’m driving instead of my cute Jag repo’d by Vicki.
  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?  Not acting or modeling. Got that t-shirt and took it with me to rehab. I gave all that up to follow my dream of becoming a private investigator. Just like Julia Pinkerton, Teen Detective, my biggest role. Yes, I know she’s fictional.
  9. What profession would you not like to do?  Acting or modeling.
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  That was a close one.

“Child star and hilarious hot mess Maizie Albright trades Hollywood for the backwoods of Georgia and pure delight ensues. Maizie’s my new favorite escape from reality.”

— Gretchen Archer, USA Today bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Caper series


When ex-teen star Maizie Albright returns to her Southern hometown of Black Pine, Georgia, she hoped to rid herself of Hollywood tabloid and reality show hell for a new career as a private investigator. Instead, Hollyweird follows her home. Maizie’s costar crushing, but now for her gumshoe boss. Her stage-monster mother still demands screen time. Her latest rival wants her kicked off the set, preferably back to a California prison.

By entangling herself in a missing person’s case, she must reprise her most famous role. The job will demand a performance of a lifetime. But this time, the stakes are real and may prove deadly.
