Praise for 'Twilight Of the Drifter' by Shelly Frome:
"This is a thoughtful, careful study of the south in a way that makes a time and a place come alive. One thing I liked especially about it is the dialogue and the pacing of the narrative. Frome is writing from deep understanding and with a skill that is enviable. A good mystery from a good writer."-Lee Jacobus, LeeJacobus.com
"Rich in southern history and mystery."- Patricia Gligor, Author of 'Mixed Messages' & 'Desperate Deeds'
"Shelly Frome's southern fried literary characters in "Twilight of the Drifer" haunt the reader like a stirring and heartfelt Blues song. This crime story loses no time in transporting the reader into the dark underbelly of the gritty world of the Mississippi Delta. Mr. Frome's vivid and picturesque use of description paints one unforgettable reading experience."- Gerry Corn, Amazon Reviewer
Praise for 'Tinseltown Riff' by Shelly Frome:
"Capture Real Energy Reading This Fast Moving and Intriguing Book!"- Jo-Anne Vandermeulen, Author of ' Conquer All Obstacles'
"Tinseltown Riff by Shelly Frome took me on a trip through the movie industry that was a surprise and a lot of fun. Not your typical Hollywood story. On this wild ride through the industry, you'll be watching over Ben's shoulder as he does his best to make it in the Big Time, only to trip and fall, time and time again. I recommend this story to readers looking to get away from it all, who are looking for an adventure, and who want to be entertained."- A. McGraw, Amazon Reviewer
"Tinseltown Riff is an amazing collage of false and failed people trying to make it in the superficial atmosphere of Hollywood. Caught in their own world of make believe the oddball characters shuffle the deck and don't always come up with a full one. Scam artists feast on the likes of Ben trying to draw his way back into the movie world, and failed actresses trying to recreate themselves. Add in a hit man from the Vegas mob on the prowl for lost drugs, records and money. This unusual mix of offbeat characters makes for entertaining reading and intrigue."- Julian Stuart Haber, Author, 'A Nail In The Body of Christ' and 'Blood Avenger'

Murder Run centers on Jed Cooper, a wayward handyman grappling with the untimely death of his employer, a fragile choreographer who secluded herself in the Litchfield Hills. As the fallout mounts, the reader is taken to various locales in and around Manhattan, an escapade in Miami Springs and back again to the Connecticut hill country until this twisty conundrum finally plays itself out.
Jed Cooper, is a young handyman who worked for a choreographer hiding out in Litchfield, CT and tried to help her, but really didn’t know why she was so afraid or of what. He is the prime suspect when she is found dead and he works hard to clear his name. Jed has his work cut out for him as the two detectives are clueless – counting on Jed to either find the murderer or confess, and the corrupt state trooper isn’t much more help. Jed is the good guy and I cheered him on. With multiple story lines that intersect this is a complex puzzle, but Jed is able to emerge with the solution.
