Welcome to my world! Come in, pull up a chair, grab a glass of iced tea and let's chat.
I grew up in a small rural town in Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories—ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.
For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.
Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.
Currently I have published six cozy mysteries in two series: Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chococolate; The Great Chocolate Scam; and Chocolate Mousse Attack. Charley's Ghost: The Ex Who Wouldn't Die and The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark. More books in each series will be published as soon as I copy them from brain to computer!
I have sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For these novels, I won several awards including National Readers' Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed three of the out-of-print single titles.
Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! Okay, I just plain love to talk!

This romantic thriller moves quickly. It has the unlikely combination of a man who fears that he has a murderous alter ego in a split personality and his psychologist. The romance is a bit odd but the thriller element is exciting.

Secrets Among the Shadows was the first book I read by author Sally Berneathy. The book raises interesting questions--can one-half of a modern day Jekyll and Hyde commit murder without the other half knowing and being equally responsible, and is it possible to love a person that you already suspect is mentally ill and potentially a murderer?
From the beginning I enjoyed the interaction and tension between the main characters, investment banker Eliot Kane and psychiatrist Leanne Warner, although I did question their relationship as the story progressed. It was difficult for me to imagine that a doctor would so easily become romantically involved with a patient or even an ex-patient. None-the-less, the story moved forward quickly and flowed well from one scene to another. The ending was rather anti-climactic and tied up a bit too neatly for my liking, but overall I did enjoy this light summer read. I rate it three stars out of five--a solid novel even with its minor flaws.
