I'm so glad you've stopped by my site for a visit.  There's information about my books, of course, but I share snippets of my life with my thoughts in my blog and bio, and the events calendar lists any upcoming appearances.

My first trilogy, the Mali Hooper Thriller trilogy, is complete and I'm working on a new series called the Texas Hill Country Murders.  Where Mali's story was sequential from books 1 through 3, this next series will focus on different characters and stories (with some overlap between them), all set in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.  So they will be stand alone books that you can read in any order.  The new series also stays on the mystery/suspense side of the genre, leaving the thriller aspect out for the most part.

Book 1 - Four Minutes of Darkness - is being written right now.  I'm more than halfway through and plan to publish it in mid-to-late March.  So get ready for some interesting stories written right here in my backyard.

Sign up for my monthly newsletter below so you can stay in touch with news and happenings in my world, and if you'd like me to attend your book club to discuss one of my books or speak at your club, feel free to reach out via the Contact page.

Thanks again for your visit.  Take care!

Here is the blurb:

Can a twenty year cold case be solved in four minutes of darkness?

Grace Strong was ten-years-old and living in Houston with her mom and grandma when she witnessed their shocking murder. Even though the bodies were taken, the case was classified as a robbery resulting in homicide. Their bodies were never found, nor was the killer.


Twenty years later, Grace moves back to the small town of Boerne, Texas, with her fourteen-year-old daughter, determined to find the answers. She believes she’ll find them where it all began, in the Texas Hill Country.


As Grace delves deeper into her past, with the help of local detective Ethan Marshall and her mom’s journal, somebody takes notice and will do anything to keep the truth from coming out. Will opening this door to her past give her the answers she seeks, or kill her?


Some doors should never be opened…
