Welcome to my website and thanks for stopping by! I’m happy to announce the publication of my debut novel, The First Fiancée: A Bethany Jarviss Mystery. This whodunit is available in paperback and e-book formats from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other retailers. I challenge you to help Bethany solve the case!

I was clued in to mystery stories early in life as an avid fan of Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew. As an adolescent, I began reading adult mysteries when my uncle gave my father a cardboard box filled with Detective Book Club novels.

My own writing ranges from flash fiction to short stories, and now, my novel featuring Bethany Jarviss, the grants administrator for her family’s charitable foundation in New Mexico. She uses her sharp mind and engaging personality to solve crimes that threaten to shake up the lives of people she loves. Bethany has complicated relationships with her family and her cowboy boyfriend. I’m having a fine time fine-tuning the manuscript of a second novel and drafting a third featuring this gal. I write in my office at home in Colorado, my cabin in the New Mexico mountains, or wherever else I go with my laptop. I take tea breaks with my nose in a classic or contemporary mystery at my favorite cafes. Maybe I’ll see you there!
