I live in Huntington Beach, California, with my husband, Tom, and our boxer, Kelly. I'm the author of a number of series including several cozy mysteries: Cedar Bay, Liz Lucas, High Desert, Midwest, Northwest, Jack Trout, Cottonwood Springs, and the Holly Lewis series which is in the Nancy Drew vein.

Black Dots and Red Zero are short read suspense serials, and if you're a fan of suspense series, you might try the award-winning Coyote Series. I also have a Midlife Journey series which is about people struggling with problems common to that time in our lives.

I'm often asked why, after writing a successful suspense series like The Coyote Series, I would switch to cozy mysteries. After I read my first one, I felt like I'd come home. I love to cook and I love dogs, pure and simple. Each of my cozy mystery books has plenty of dogs and mouth-watering recipes. I also love to travel, so my books take place in small towns as well as castles in Tuscany!

My readers are so important to me because they've made me a two-time USA TODAY bestselling author and seven times Amazon All-Star. Without their support that never would have happened.

I invite you to follow me so you'll always be aware of my newly published books. Thanks for stopping by!
