Published in 2006 by Five Star/Gale, my first book was a historical novel, FOUR SUMMERS WAITING It was given a second edition in LP by Thorndike Press. Next came a contemporary series, THE MAINE SHORE CHRONICLES The Chronicles are a cross between Romantic Suspense and Sweet Cozy Mystery. Books one, two,and three FINDING FIONA, MOONGLADE, and PROMISE KEEPER all received second editions in Large Print by Thorndike Press. SAFE HARBOR is a spin-off of the series, published in 2014.
