Austin is now the trendy number one city, but back in the eighties it was more laid back – not so many skyscrapers and urban hipsters. Just outside of town, you'd be likely to run into old cowboys, ranch hands, and a diamondback or two. And just maybe – an accidental death not as accidental as it seems…

Complete with Texas Recipes for the Oktoberfest Dinner where all is revealed:

  • Grilled German Sausages
  • Foil-Wrapped Corn on the Cob
  • Mustang Grape Wine
  • Rustic Rosemary Bread
  • Deep Fried Biscuits with Honey Butter
  • Spicy Bacon Baked Beans
  • Homemade Tamales
  • Warm Red-Skinned German Potato Salad
  • Aunt June’s Refrigerator Pickles
  • Dutch Apple Pie


In addition to teaching English for 22 years, Kathy has also authored Appetite for Murder: A Mystery Lover’s Cookbook, as well as her current Movie Review website for Film Loving Foodies, Different created in 2005.

The Serpent’s Tooth is based on Kathy’s misadventures redoing a 100-year-old abandoned ranch house. Bees hummed in between the walls, owls feasted on snakes in the attic, assorted cattle had made the dwelling their own, and worst of all, diamondback rattlers hid under the old, rickety floorboards.
