Welcome! I’m so glad  you’re here.

I have always been a writer, but until 2012 I was a self-professed serial entrepreneur. In that realm, I have had several hundred print and online articles published, primarily focusing on marketing for independent business owners.

In 2012, I was blessed to be in a position to retire from all that and I set out to write my first novel, a mystery/suspense. DEADLY SWITCH: A Stone Suspense, was published in November of 2013. With an average of 4.5 out of 5-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, I’ve been astounded by its success and delighted by clamors of “sequel, please!” from my readers.

I am currently completing the sequel, the second in the Stone Suspense series, Scare Away the Dark. In both books, I have drawn on my love of travel, food, and language. Deadly Switch starts in West Vancouver, British Columbia—moves to Carmel, California—and finally lands in Tropea (a beautiful little town in Calabria), Italy. Along with edge-of-your-chair suspense, I’ve tried to share with my readers the authenticity of each of these regions.

DEADLY SWITCH: A Stone Suspense

Deadly-Switch-book-coverWHO IS THE MAN FOUND DEAD, WITH A NEEDLE IN HIS ARM? WHAT IS HE DOING IN GAVIN STONE’S WATERFRONT MANSION? A charismatic, international property developer. His estranged and bitter daughter. Each obsessed and tormented. Both harboring too many secrets. He’s on the run; she’s in the chase of her life. What they discover changes everything. From the gruesome discovery in an exclusive enclave of West Vancouver, British Columbia, DEADLY SWITCH takes you on a wild ride from Italy’s Amalfi coast, to the idyllic seaside town of Carmel, California. Gavin Stone’s tormented daughter, Jordan, searches frantically for her missing father, matching wits with devious criminals. With demons of her own to fight, she shouldn’t care about proving him innocent of murder and embezzlement—but she does. Murder…intrigue… a romance built on a house of cards: this thriller will satisfy your thirst for the adrenaline rush that this intricately plotted story delivers. A delicious stay-up-all-nighter, DEADLY SWITCH stuns with its heart-pounding conclusion. You will not see it coming. If you love suspense/thrillers, you will devour DEADLY SWITCH.

Nothing I Enjoy More Than Engaging With Readers…

…other than writing and reading, that is! And speaking of both those things: I absolutely love speaking to book clubs. If you’re in the Vancouver, BC area I would be happy to come in person and talk about the writing of DEADLY SWITCH and answer any questions you might have. If you’re a little further away, Skype works beautifully, and it will save you the wine and appies:>)
