Exploring Just Became Real
by Karen Hillier

This ambitious and entertaining short story collection follows a woman who delights in exploring the world—but has the extraordinary fortune (or misfortune) of stumbling into a great number of crime scenes! From bodies hidden in farmhouses to hands found in buckets and trunks filled with skeletal remains, this book is sure to thrill fans of mystery, suspense, and crime. These are stories inspired by real life mysteries. How drugs and alcohol can change people. Caves that have kept their secrets for many years. Family members who disappeared and were never looked for or talked about. Missing babies covered up for the shame of the family. Exploring Just Became REAL has all this—and more.

Karen Hillier (Burke) is a wife, mother to two daughters, and grandmother to six grandkids. She has been writing poems all her life, and always wanted to write a novel. After retirement, she finally had the time to dedicate to her dream. A huge fan of adventure and crime, Hillier has always loved exploring the natural world. The two passions came together in this novel, which will hopefully be the first of many. Hillier was born and raised in Sydney, Nova Scotia. After spending nineteen years in Thompson, Manitoba, she moved back to Nova Scotia for a time before finally settling in Dawson Creek, B.C. where she and her husband live in their tiny cabin in the woods.
