I hope you have half as much fun reading my mysteries and suspense novels as I have researching and writing them. Amazing how much better I sleep after finding a really cool way to do away with (on paper) those folks who just don't seem to get their just desserts in real life. 

My goal is to deliver mystery/ suspense novels loaded with thrills , while also ensuring that justice is served, laughter is plentiful, and love triumphs. My heroines and heroes aren't perfect, but they're strong-willed and well-intentioned, just like the folks who inspire me. 

I love reading as much as writing, and many good friends share my passions. That makes it doubly fun to belong to Sisters in Crime, International Thriller Writers & Romance Writers of America as well as to be part of the volunteer family at the Writers' Police Academy.
Bones To Pick, the lst book in my humorous Brie Hooker Mystery series is set to relesae Oct. 24.
