•  I’m horrible at updating this page. Since the last time I did it, Like A Sister was an April 2022 Book of the Month selection, the Oxygen Channel’s July 2022 Book Club pick, was selected as an Edgar Award finalist for Best Novel, and won the Lefty Award for Best Mystery.
  • Like A Sister received a starred review from Publishers Weekly! They wrote, “Garrett explores racism and sexism with aplomb, as shown by the sarcasm Lena displays when others underestimate her because she’s a young Black woman.” You can read the entire review here
  • Did not wake up expecting to see Hollywood Homicide on this list of “Top 10 Cosy Crime Novels” from the Guardian that includes Agatha Christie, Dorothy L Sayers, MC Beaton, Louise Penny and so many more amazing mystery authors but there it is!! Check it out.
  • They’re back! Both Detective by Day mysteries are back with gorgeous new covers in e-book format everywhere! Check out the Books page for more info. And if you’d like a signed first edition physical copy, hit me up via the contact form. 
  • Cover Reveal: In case you missed it, I shared the cover of my upcoming suspense novel Like A Sister on CrimeReads! Alex Segura and I chatted about writing black women, domestic suspense for the Instagram gen & the first thing I look for at new drug stores.

This is where I’m supposed to have events but I also stink at updating those. So the best bet is to check out my Twitter and Instagram pages for latest events.
