It's MYSTERY THRILLER WEEK (www.mysterythrillerweek.com) and I'm doing a little happy dance. I've made great new friends at this event and found some fantastic reads to add to my library.

And speaking of new friends. Samantha Goodwin, author of Murder at Macbeth, and I...

Well, my friends, I’m woefully behind on updating you on what’s going on at my little writing desk. I’m sure you’ve been waiting with bated breath! I published my novella, Behind the Mask, at the end of 2018. It’s a companion story to the Riley’s Peak series, with a th...

Some people swear the house is haunted. It hadn’t always been. What had once been a decent three-bedroom bungalow now slanted under the weight of neglect. A low hum howled from cracked windows framed in crooked shutters. Shrieks. Groans. Growls. An occasional disturbed...

I have always been fascinated with bridges, their size, shape, and structure, and especially what lies between point A and point B. In my first novel, Chasing Symmetry, there’s a brief exchange about London Bridge between Bianca and Maris, and yes, the well-known child...

I wouldn’t want to slight the other seasons, because I find something wonderful in each, but I have a really big crush on spring. As soon as I toss last year’s calendar, my fingers start itching to flip ahead to March.

Spring. Something fresh bounces to mind at the very...

Now that I have your attention, the definition of hyperarousal may not be what you think. It refers to the acute stress response in the face of anything threatening. Imagine fight or flight on steroids. Most of us don’t have to deal with this kind of stress, but every...

For as long as I can remember, I have been intrigued and terrified in equal measure at the idea of ghosts. There’s something magical and even romantic about a spirit staying on this earthly plane long after their body has stopped serving its purpose. What keeps them he...
