Acorns from Oak Tree Press: P.J. Nunn's Angel Killer



Wednesday has become one of my favorite days of the week because it's when I get to introduce one of Oak Tree Press's talented authors and books with all of you. Since this is the busy holiday season, I'm going to cut the "Introductions & Motivations" section short, and get right down to the fun business of talking books--

Let's welcome P.J. Nunn and learn about her latest book, Angel Killer!

The book...


Available Now!

The death of a child is every mother’s nightmare. But what if the child has no mother? What if their little bodies are discarded like garbage and no one even seems to care that they’re gone?
Shari Markham, psychologist for the Dallas Police Department, knows what it feels like to be unclaimed and unwanted. She can’t turn away, even if it means demons dancing in her dreams at night. But when her relentless pursuit of information to help apprehend this madman gets a little too close, he turns the tables, warning her that his next scheduled victim will be her own three-year-old granddaughter, Angel!




"Dr. Shari Markham demonstrates skills Charlie Fox would be proud of in this tense hunt for a deranged serial killer. Crackles with romantic suspense." Zoe Sharp, author of Die Easy and the Charlie Fox Thriller series  

"Tense and enthralling, ANGEL KILLER is a first-rate story of nail-biting suspense and unpredictable mystery. From page one it grips the reader and never lets go. Bring on more of Shari Markham, Dallas PD profiler. She's a winner!" Joanne Pence, author of the Angie Amalfi mysteries

The author...


P.J. Nunn
As with most things, P.J. Nunn's career started out as something else entirely. She started out in retail then moved to property management. That led to teaching high school, then serving as a counselor and liaison to the local police youth services division. She also spent five years as chairperson of the Coryell County Child Welfare Board and spent years counseling abuse victims and serving law enforcement as a trauma counselor and consultant (something she still does today). When she moved to Dallas, a family illness caused her to leave a job teaching psychology at Dallas County Community College District to become a freelance writer, but found that a few favors she was doing for friends—writing press releases and setting up book signings—was better suited to her talents and her drives.

In 1998, she founded BreakThrough Promotions, now a national public relations firm helping authors, mostly of mystery novels, publicize themselves and their work. The business is thriving and P.J. is excited about the release of her first novel, Angel Killer. P.J. lives with her husband and some of their five children near Dallas, Texas.

  1. Cathy - Oh, this sounds really compelling, but so very sad. I think I'd have to be in the right frame of mind to get the most from it.
