Hi do! If you are new to my channel here’s a little bit about me~ I’m Tonya Kappes. I’m a USA Today Bestselling author who write SOUTHERN COZY MYSTERIES.

First I’m a mom of four grown men boys, a wife with a rescue cat, Rowena. We live in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky where the seasons change as quickly as the suspects in my books!

I write in 11 cozy mystery series for HarperCollins, Henery Press, Crooked Lane (Maymee Bell), and indie publish. I love my readers and host my own annual MURDER MYSTERY WEEKEND every October where I rent a train (yes a real train that moves) with a mystery dinner theater.

My readers send me in question and I love to answer those through weekly videos from my shamper (SHE-CAMPER). Don’t miss anything! Be sure to SUBSCRIBE!

Happy sleuthing!

Character Guest Post: MOTHER Barbara Butler + Recipe

Character: Barbara Butler
Series: Mail Carrier Cozy Mystery written by Tonya Kappes


Well…butter my biscuit and welcome to The Wallflower Diner. I’ve got you a two topper over yonder or you can mosey on up to the counter. I see a few stool open next to my regulars.

You know how regulars are. They come in at the crack of dawn and don’t leave until I shoo them away. But today they’re here waitin’ on Bernie.

Oh! She’s my daughter. She’s also the mailman for our family diner. And don’t be goin’ and correctin’ my language. I know she gets all offended when I call her a mailman. She says, “Mom! I’m a mail carrier. Times have changed,”

I’ll let you in on a little secret! Not a lot of times have changed. You see all them regulars up there, well they are waitin’ on Bernie to deliver the mail because she’s got all the scoop on the dead body they found over at the gas station.

Rumor has it’s Simon Little, but that’s hearsay. I’m not gossiping or nothing. Just trying to figure it all out so you know…we can pray.

Anyways, you’re not here to hear me gab. You’re here for a tasty recipe and I’ve got the best country gravy this side of the Mississippi!

🕵️‍♀️📫Have you read the first three books in the Mail Carrier Cozy Mystery Series? Now is the time to grab the first three books so you’ll be all caught up in the Mail Carrier Series when POST MORTEM releases on MAY 27th 🕵️‍♀️📫
