I've been writing fiction for, oh, ages! I'm crazy about stories.

My first novel was published twenty-plus years ago in April 1994. I'm thrilled to share it with you here on Wattpad. The Bluejay Shaman is a mystery set in Montana, featuring an art dealer, Alix Thorssen, as an amateur sleuth. Alix goes to Missoula, Montana, to check out a trailer full of stolen art for the FBI when her sister's husband is arrested.

There are three more Alix Thorssen mysteries, and a collection of short stories. I also wrote two historical mysteries set just before World War II in Kansas City, Missouri.

In 2009 I started a small press with fellow writer, Katy Munger. Thalia Press now publishes my work including five stand-alone novels. My newest one, The Girl in the Empty Dress, is the sequel to my bestselling suspense novel, Blackbird Fly, published in 2009 and shared here on Wattpad.

I'd love to keep in touch. I often have giveaways available only through my newsletter. Please sign up for the newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/A6bsD Happy reading!
