Nov. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Durham, NC, November 15, 2012--Get ready for a rollickin’ series of cozy mysteries featuring amateur detective Peaches Donnelly. Emerging writer A. T. Hicks was looking to do something a little different. When deciding on the idea of her first novel, she only knew she wanted to do something funny and fast paced with a little dash of danger. So when the idea of Peaches and the Gambler popped up, she knew it was a winner.

Set in Durham, North Carolina, Peaches and the Gambler is the first installment of a hilarious series of cozy mysteries featuring amateur sleuth Peaches Donnelly. In this first novel, Peaches has been fired from her job and is wrestling for control of her two pesky daughters. Amidst this chaos, her high maintenance opera singer sister breezes into town and a childhood friend is murdered in cold blood. As Peaches struggles to make a delicious decision between two good-looking men, she dives head first into the murder investigation. Chomping her way through a culinary no-man’s land filled with boxes of Dove Ice Cream Bars and Bojangles’ extra crispy friend chicken, Peaches dodges danger to get to the bottom of this not so funny business. But when her nosing around leads her to a strip wpxwm club, Peaches must decide exactly how far she’s willing to go to solve this murder.


A. T. Hicks lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with her husband, an ever rotating menagerie of kids, and too many pets to count. After writing her first book more than twelve years ago, her heart was broken when the publisher decided to drop her. But she never gave up on her dream. After underperforming in a number of bootleg jobs, she returned to her first love and had been writing ever since. Her first novel was published on All Hollow’s Eve 2012.

Author A. T. Hicks can be reached for information about interviews, chatting with book clubs, or just to give a friendly shout at or 919-259-2521.
