Who killed professor Abby Monroe?
When Kellan Ayrwick returns home for his father’s retirement, he finds a body in Diamond Hall’s stairwell. Unfortunately, Kellan has a connection to the victim, and so do several members of his family.

Soon after, the college’s athletic program receives mysterious donations, a nasty blog denounces his father and someone attempts to change students’ grades.

Someone is playing games on campus, but none of the facts add up. With the help of his eccentric nana, Kellan tries to stay out of the sheriff’s way. But who is behind the murder?

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here. Find out more at

  1. Hi Sally,

    I’m new to your blog and relatively new to writing. Thank you for all of the great content. I’m amazed that you churn out the amount of material you do in a week. It isn’t just the volume that is impressive; it’s the quality as well.

    I’m a retired elementary teacher who wrote a book (They Call Me Mom) about my life as a teacher. This never was on my radar. It is a combination memoir/advice book that is designed to offer help and suggestions to the next generation of teachers. It was great therapy just writing my thoughts down. Here is the link:

    My new goal (This one was planned) was to delve into the wonderful world of children’s books. I’ve joined a critique group and have been working on some projects for the last few months. I’m heading to my first children’s writer’s conference in a month. Retirement is the best because I’m doing those things I’ve always wanted to do. Nothing like learning the guitar when you’re sixty years old. I like to tease my wife and tell her I’m starting my career as a fledgling rock and roller. Ha-ha!

    Anyway, I’m thrilled to have discovered your blog and love being a part of this community.

    Much luck,
    Pete S.

    • Thank you Pete and delighted you are enjoying the blog. I am lucky to have some great guest writers who make me look good. The idea was to create a magazine approach and I love meeting new and interesting people with something to share. I looked at your book and you have some great reviews and I wondered if you had considered converting to an ebook as it would have international appeal. Most of the authors in this community do that themselves via Kindle without a third party involved which makes it a reasonable cost option. Children’s books will are a wonderful way to grab the attention and stimulate the imagination of the next generation of writers and I wish you luck with that. Please keep in touch with your progress and if you would like to contribute a guest post when you have time you would be very welcome.. best wishes Sally
