An avid reader, Anita has always been intrigued by characters with unexpected skills, that extra edge for overcoming danger and adversity. Adding her infatuation with ancient myths and legends of Native American Indians, and Scottish and Irish folklore creates the backdrop for her characters. With her law enforcement background, it is no surprise her novels are suspense/thrillers with a unique paranormal twist.
Anita is a retired Dallas police officer and served as a patrol officer, undercover narcotics officer, was a unit sniper on the SWAT team, and finished her career as an advanced accident investigator. Her plots and many of the events in her novels are based on actual experience.
Her debut fictional novel, Sentinels of the Night, sets up an elite team of FBI agents, Code Name—Trackers. Each agent has that extra edge, an ability that defies reason or logic. Going Gone! is the second in the Tracker novels. Her third Tracker novel, Au79, is near completion.
Her first book, JFK Assassination Eyewitness: Rush to Conspiracy—The Real Facts of Lee Bowers’ Death, was non-fiction. Bowers was a key witness to President Kennedy's assassination and died in a car crash in 1966. Conspiracy theorists have claimed Bowers was murdered because of what he saw the day Kennedy was shot. Anita conducted a cold case accident reconstruction, and her book details her research and conclusion.
The project jump-started a new career as an author and publisher. She continues to live in Texas.
