My latest mystery/thriller CARRION released last fall. This sequel to THE DARK END OF THE RAINBOW re-introduces Xandra Byrd, now a student in criminology at a local community college, whose finds herself embroiled in yet another mystery when she discovers a dead body behind the restaurant where she works. I’ve spent a lot of time spreading the word about Xandra’s budding career in police work. Your word-of-mouth and reviews help tremendously, so THANK YOU!

2023 is turning out to be a huge writing year!

I’m working on several manuscripts: BETRAYED, a sequel to BROKEN, which means more love and mystery in the Adirondacks; The Hiding Game, a romantic suspense set in Saugatuck, Michigan; and The Druid’s Call, a paranormal based on the Celtic legends.

I’m also writing a lot of poetry. Not many events scheduled locally so far, except for Reading Between the Wines…where I’m serving as emcee! See below for more information.
