As a child, Lauren Carr's mother often read her Perry Mason stories for her bedtime story time. This ritual made Ms. Carr fall in love with mysteries and become a life long fan of the genre.
It was with this deep-seated love of mystery, that led Lauren Carr to become an author and weave her own edge-of-your-seat mystery tales. She is the author of the Mac Faraday Mysteries, which take place in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. The first two books in the series, It’s Murder, My Son and Old Loves Die Hard have been getting rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike. Miss Carr's fifth mystery, Shades of Murder has also been receiving enormously positive and glowing reviews since its release.
Lauren Carr’s sixth book, Dead on Ice, has recently been released (August 22, 2012). Dead on Ice introduces a new series entitled Lovers in Crime, in which Joshua Thornton will join forces with homicide detective Cameron Gates.
The owner of Acorn Book Services, Lauren Carr is also a publishing manager, consultant, editor, cover, and layout designer, and marketing agent for many talented, independent authors. This upcoming spring, two books written by independent authors will be released through the management of Acorn Book Services.
Ms. Carr is also a popular speaker who has made appearances at schools, youth groups, and on author panels at conventions. She is thrilled to pass along what she has learned in her years of writing and publishing by conducting workshops and teaching in community education classes.
Lauren Carr resides on a mountain in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, with her husband, son and two dogs.

Could you please tell us a bit about your book? The story? The characters?
Dead on Ice is the first installment of my new series (Lovers in Crime) featuring Hancock County Prosecuting Attorney Joshua Thornton and Pennsylvania State Police homicide detective Cameron Gates.
Spunky Cameron Gates is tasked with solving the murder of Cherry Pickens, a legendary star of pornographic films, whose body turns up in an abandoned freezer. The case has a personal connection to her lover, Joshua Thornton, because the freezer was located in his cousin’s basement. It doesn’t take long for their investigation to reveal that the risqué star’s roots were buried in their rural Ohio Valley community, something that Cherry had kept off her show business bio. She should have kept her hometown off her road map, too—because when this starlet came running home from the mob, it proved to be a fatal homecoming.
