Welcome you to my website. I’m the author of seven books, both literary fiction and literary mystery. My novels are published by 4am Books.
The fall of 2020 brought the release of Summers Only, the Wild Raspberries series finale. Summers Only takes protagonist Terri Miller on a lifelong journey. This story was written in my heart before Proper Goodbye, the second in the series, was published. I feel I have journeyed with Terri, experienced her joys and sorrows, and because she’s homeless and on the move, experienced her sore aching feet. The story is unique, and you will find yourself drawn in from the first scene.
I stay very busy with my writing. In 2021, I hope to publish two novels. Every Cloud is a work of literary fiction. It has been great fun to write. The characters keep me entertained. The fifth Wrenn Grayson Mystery will follow. Wrenn tackles an assignment that is both personal and dangerous. The historian is forced to make difficult decisions that affect many of her new friends.
Feel free to look around my website. You’ll find the many extras I provide my readers. These downloadable extras include the first chapters from all my novels, character lists for all my mysteries, and four free short stories. My best-selling novel, Wild Raspberries, is available on Audible. I’m pleased to offer this option for those who prefer to have the story read to them. I personally love the audio edition of books.
I recommend signing up for my newsletter. It provides many more insights into the writing life, as well as advance notice of new releases and opportunities for free eBook downloads.
Nice meeting you and thanks for stopping by.
