I'm the New York Times bestselling author of the hardboiled mystery Identity Crisis, featuring Maryland lawyer-sleuth Stephanie Ann "Sam" McRae. I've also written and published Invisible Me, a young adult novel, The Planck Factor, a thriller, and several short stories, one of which was nominated for a Derringer Award.

The thing that inspired me to write a lawyer-sleuth novel was that I wanted to write stories about a female protagonist who solved mysteries and did so without compromising legal ethics -- much! One of the big obstacles Sam faces in solving mysteries is doing so without using the usual private eye trickery.

I'm re-launching my entire four-book Sam McRae mystery series. If you're interested in downloading several sample chapters, just click this link and fill out the form: http://eepurl.com/cf-BdP

I've worked as a waitress, a photography model, a substitute school bus driver, a typist, an attorney, a freelance writer, and a reference librarian, among other things.

My interests include reading, music, movies, traveling, walking, baseball, and cats. And good espresso. Not necessarily in that order.
