I'm a globe trekker, explorer, sometimes expat and always a lover of books. With an interest in criminal justice, I enjoy creating tales filled with grit, murder and mayhem.I couldn't imagine a better world than being able to create stories from my sometimes dark imagination.
If you hear someone singing karoke, dancing Gangnum Style or just having an all around good time, then you might see me there. I love Castle, the movie Se7en, and Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.
Yep, murder follows me everywhere!
What do you read for pleasure?
I enjoy reading thrillers and romance. Ever since I was teenager, I've been enthralled with crime fiction and I enjoy tales that can sweep me away.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love my I-pad because it gives me so many options when it comes to reading. I have an app for the Nook, Kindle and of course the i-Book, but also being able to borrow books through Overdrive, which I can read in my browser. I may not have the library of my dreams yet, with books lining the walls, but having books just a click away makes the stories easily accessible.
Cold-hearted detective Peter Lazarus is called in to gather evidence against a ruthless gang distributing and transporting black tar heroin up and down the East Coast. He's a man without anything to lose... until he walks into a bar run by the gang and sees Charlie, his ex, who could blow his cover with one wrong move! How much is one body worth?
Bodies are piling up in Richmond, Virginia, mutilated and tagged. A serial killer metes out justice to those who have escaped it, killing according to the Ten Commandments and Alexandria "Xandy" Caras is on his list of victims.
This dark, gritty, and sometimes grisly mystery is the first book in the Spark Before Dying series.
