Can you solve a murder with "acoustic" clues?
Sylvia Massara, novelist and host of the popular literary show, The Lit Chick Show, features mystery author Patricia Rockwell and her book "The Sounds of Murder". This is the first of a series of “Pamela Barnes acoustic mysteries”, where the main character solves murders by using acoustic clues.
Her publications are extensive, with over 20 peer-reviewed articles in scholarly journals, several textbooks, and a research book on her major interest area of sarcasm, published by Edwin Mellen Press. In addition to publications, she has presented numerous papers at academic conferences and served for eight years as Editor of the Louisiana Communication Journal. Her research focuses primarily on several areas of communication: deception, sarcasm, and vocal cues.
Dr. Rockwell is presently living in Aurora, Illinois, with her husband Milt, also a retired educator. The couple has two adult children. SOUNDS OF MURDER is her first novel.
