A Letter from Joelle Charbonneau
Hi! I’m a girl who loves singing and dancing.
Nothing makes me happier than a fabulous song, a great
costume and a stage to perform on. So, I guess it
shouldn’t come as any surprise that I am the author of
a new Glee Club mystery series. In my professional
performing career, I’ve experienced the highs and lows
that come with the job—the hope that comes with every
audition, the anxious waiting for the phone to ring, the
disappointment when the call never comes, and the joy that
fills you when you land the gig and the roller coaster ride
begins all over again.
Classical singer and music theater performer, Paige
Marshall is on that up and down ride. Based in the suburbs
of Chicago, Paige is waiting for the phone to ring and for
her performance career to take off. But until that day
comes, she has to make a living. So, Paige takes a job as a
high school show choir coach. Heck, after the trials and
tribulations of being a professional performer teaching
teenagers should be a cinch. Right?
The show choir wants to win competitions this year and they
don’t believe a classically trained singer can lead
them to victory. Paige is determined to win them over, but
finding a rival show choir director murdered throws a wrench
into her plans. And when someone points the finger at her
best male singer...well, Paige feels compelled to ask some
questions and set him free.
If that wasn’t enough to keep Paige busy,
there’s a recital to perform in, a large standard
poodle intent on making her go hungry and a possible romance
to explore—especially if Paige’s matchmaking
Aunt Millie has anything to say about it. Throw in a sexy,
pastel wearing theater director, a militant yoga instructor,
an eccentric Italian pianist and a lot of high school kids
with both talent and attitude and you have MURDER FOR CHOIR, the
first of the Glee Club Mysteries.
Paige and company’s debut performance begins July
3rd. I hope when the show is over, you’ll want an encore.
