Greetings fellow mystery lovers,

Sick of winter? Ready to enjoy a good mystery while steeping yourself in splendid spring weather? I’m all over that too!

Redeeming Trust launched December 9 a we were slogging through a snow storm in New York City. My poor protagonist, Kingsley Ward, didn’t fare much better, as a diabolical killer was intent on murdering her. The third Trust novel in the trilogy now has an official title—Vanished: A Trust Mystery, Book 3. It will be released Saturday, October 27, 2018.

The Dying Hour will have a sequel! Watch for The Innocent Hour to be released in 2019. I’m so grateful for your support and wonderful feedback. That keeps me scheming and committed to bringing you an exceptional mystery.

Have a glorious spring. And I hope to see you at any of the following writers’ events. All the best,


Redeeming Trust, the sequel to A Matter of Trust, is in the news!

I’ll be participating and/or attending the following events. I would love to see you there.
