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 and surprises, 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 people 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, Romance Writers of America, and International Thriller Writers, as well as to be counted among the volunteer family at the Writers' Police Academy.
