I write mysteries and have a six-book mystery series set in Alaska. But I also enjoy taking part in flash fiction challenges, blog hops, anything book-related.

In my spare time, I love being hypnotized by the waves, long leisurely walks on the beach, and taking pictures of the sunrise. Hey, I live on the beach–I’ll get to the writing when I get to the writing. 😊

I’ve just finished the 7th Detective Quaid Mystery. Murder by Proxy and I’m working on a new series set on the beach.
