Standing on a street corner, leaning against the light pole, dressed in a London Fog trench coat, my fedora pitched forward, hiding my face, I’m entering the ‘Make Mine Mystery’ blog world.
Okay, that’s what I think I look like. I’m probably really look more like my amateur sleuth heroines –frazzled and frumpy. A woman just trying to get through the day with work and relatives and all the day-to-day crap. Then she stumbles over a dead body. Of course, my heroine is the prime suspect for oh, so many reasons.
I've found some success in writing romance. My debut (THE BULL RIDER'S BROTHER) came out this June, with next in the series releasing in November. And I have a paranormal romantic novella (A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL) releasing in November as well. Not a dead body in either. But my paranormal does have a homicidal cousin – who will in a future episode, will at least try to kill my heroine.
I’ve also sold essays to Chicken Soup and short fiction to the confessional magazines. Yeah, I’m sounding more and more like Mary Poppins as I write this introduction.
I assure you, I have a dark side. I’m the writer who stops at a roadside rest stop during a car trip, checks out the woods surrounding the parking lot, and thinks, what a great place to hide a body. So I write mysteries.
I’m currently shopping a cozy set in a coastal California town known for its love of tourists. And while that series looks for a home, I’ve started a new cozy set in a small fictional town near Sun Valley, Idaho.
So if you see me leaning around street lamps on a dark and foggy night-- stop by and talk. But watch out! You know I’m up to no good.
