My Story

I like to write stories about characters whose lives haven't gone as planned, who tend to walk the fine line between right and wrong. Maybe that's why, when asked about myself, I say, "I'm a happy person with a heavy soul" -- a line I  stole from a social media post somewhere.


If you're like me and enjoy a good mystery with a touch of humor, check out my books, or sign up to receive a FREE short story, "Before You Croak."
