When Nature Calls

Local Author Releases When Nature Calls, the First Book in the Nature Station Mystery Series

Wildflowers, Weeds, Nature, hardly the recipe for Murder, or is it?

When Nature Calls contains all the ingredients of a fresh, all natural, cozy murder mystery!

Naturalist Kristen Matthews is heading up a team of volunteers working to eradicate pesky weeds during a workday at the Nature Station, but when one of the volunteers wanders away from the rest of the group, he ends up eradicated himself. Kristen is concerned for her safety, as well as the Nature Station’s reputation. Digging, she unearths some interesting dirt on her squeaky clean helpers. Is it possible one of them is the killer? Follow Kristen’s lead, as she wades through the wildflowers tracking the murderer, while learning about nature along the way.

Born and raised on a farm in Northwestern Illinois, Jannifer Powelson's interest in writing, conservation, and the natural world was sparked at an early age.   Powelson is also the author of four books in the award winning Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk Series. These educational books use entertaining storylines, colorful and realistic illustrations, and actual photos taken by Powelson. She is employed as a resource conservationist at the Stark County SWCD and resides in Princeton with her family.  Ms. Powelson is currently working on An Unnatural Selection, the second book in the Nature Station Mystery Series.  

When Nature Calls and books in the Rachel Raccoon and Sammy Skunk series may be purchased from several local stores, and online retailers.

Progressive Rising Phoenix recognizes that the publishing industry has changed. We believe authors have choices in all aspects, including production, of their work. We're a non-traditional publisher; our program is based on choice. Our program is not a fit for every author and every author is not a fit for Phoenix. For this reason we do not solicit authors but do accept submissions.

Progressive Rising Phoenix Press is an innovative publisher founded by authors. We believe a network of authors working together is more effective than working alone.
