Best-selling author Sandra Brown was out guest this week for the "Summer Beach Read Series." Her latest book "Mean Streak" went on sale Aug. 19.

She told us how this book came together. She was actually working on another book when the idea for "Mean Streak" popped in to her head. Sandra says, over the years, she had learned to listen to "her gut" or that little voice with-in and now we have "Mean Streak."

Sandra is the author of 64 New York Times bestsellers. There are over 80 million copies of her books in print worldwide.

Sandra loved mysteries growing up and is now successful in a field dominated by men. She is proud of how she brings elements of romance into her mysteries and the readers definitely agree.
