CHARLOTTE, NC (September 30, 2017) - Charlotte Attorney, J.E.
Smythe, is laying the foundation for attorneys harboring secret
ambitions to become an author with the launch of her fourth novel,
Secrets in the Woods - An Emilia Long Mystery.

Secrets in the Woods is a gripping tale about Emilia Long- an
Investigative Reporter and her quest to find out the circumstances
surrounding her mother's death. Long's quest begins after reading
documents left for her by her adopted mother revealing that she was
abandoned as an infant at a Brooklyn hospital. The revelation led
Emilia on a suspenseful journey to find her birth mother.

But finding her is not so easy. Her investigations reveal that her birth mother disappeared months
before her birth and that the disappearance was linked to a murder. With the key suspect in her
mother's disappearance locked away in jail on unrelated charges and the townspeople, including the
Sheriff, unwilling to help her, Emilia finds herself at a dead end. In an unimaginable twist of fate,
Emilia discovers more than she bargained for. Some Secrets are really better left untold.
In addition to her 9 to 5 attorney job, Smythe is also the co-founder of publishing company, Lady
Esquire Group, LLC. The Attorney Author describes herself as a half analytic and half creative who
was blessed to figure out how to join those halves together. Her other books include: Through
Grandma's Eyes, Zora's First Day and a Few Good Friends. When asked about the motivation for
writing her latest work, she explained: "I'm a lover of the Cozy Mystery genre but I found that there
were not a lot of those books written by African American Authors with African American characters.

I just wanted to put a whole new face on such a fun and exciting genre."

page. The novel feature a cast of believable characters and numerous twists and turns that will have
