From the Author:

Introduction by Dee Owen
Marjorie Owen, or "Mum" as I called my mother-in-law, told
her son, Mike that she had written a couple of stories and let
him read them some years ago. She expressed no interest in
having them published at that time. He was never aware of the
amount that she had written until she passed away.
Mike, being an only child and having no aunts or uncles, is the
sole heir to Marjorie's estate. He discovered the box full of
Mum's writings on clearing her flat in England and took them
back to the USA.
As an avid reader, I became fascinated with Mum's stories and
books. All her writings were handwritten on legal size paper
or note books and on both sides of the paper. I began reading
some of the short stories (there are fifty plus).
I was soon hooked and decided to attempt the monumental
task of transcribing them to computer. Mum's writing was
not the easiest to read, however, but I had myself the challenge
and was going to follow through.
At first, Mike assisted me with the 'translation' of Mum's hand
writing. At times, we both became frustrated with each other
and Mum, but after a couple of stories, I became an expert at
reading Mum's writing and even improved her own typing
skills and speed.
As yet, I have not yet completed the task even after three years
of work. With a few more stories to go and two novels to
transcribe, I decided to see if my opinion about Mum's writing
skills were correct and began submitting several of the short
story's for publishing.
Several of Mum's stories were accepted for publishing by
online magazines and were published without pay. But
exposure is important. A small success spurred me to try for
bigger things.
That's where "Ladies of Class" comes in. This first book of
Mum's is to be published in March 2008. Mike and I are really
happy and hope that the book will be a success and lead to
further publication of Mum's writings.

From the Inside Flap:

What reviewers have to say about Ladies of Class
"Talented author Marjorie Grace Patricia Bridget Owen offers
an original plot with an interesting cast of characters you will
enjoy meeting. Their private agendas may get in the road of the
investigation, but they certainly add a flavor to the story which
is a comfortable blend of mystery and romance as lived by very
likable ordinary people.
Recommended as a pleasant read for any mystery buff who
doesn't like car chases or shoot 'em ups. I think Agatha C.
would like this one. I did." ~ Mystery Fiction
"Ms. Owens weaves a tale of suspense that keeps you hanging.
Richard will pull out all the stops to find the truth and
suspecting a trusted official will be the least of his problems.
The connection between Mrs. Clayton and the murderer is one
that is very surprising. I had no idea who committed the crime.
This one will leave you guessing until the very end." ~ Coffee
