Mysteries & More

Exciting news!

In addition to my stories published in the anthologies below, I have had several stories published in literary journals, and have more in upcoming publications. Watch this page for more information, or follow me on Facebook


Coming Soon . . .

My story, "The Dark Side of the Light" will appear the upcoming anthology, DAY OF THE DARK,  edited by Kaye George, from Wildside Press.

My novel, DEATH AT GLENVILLE FALLS, the first in the Gracie McIntyre Mysteries series, debuts in September, 2017. It's the story of recovering lawyer, Gracie McIntyre, whose newly-opened bookstore is vandalized. She is disturbed when the responding officer is strangely indifferent to the crime. When she discovers that he did not file a police report on the incident, she suspects he might somehow be involved. She complains to the police chief, but gets no satisfaction, even as violence against her escalates. She investigates, only to discover that it all tied to the 18-year-old murder of her former client that everyone thought was solved.
