Dear Readers,

I'm jumping into the #OpenNovellaContest with both feet...and with with my latest mystery/romance story FINDING PENNY.

(Highest ranking #21)

FINDING PENNY is about dark & dirty small-town secrets, a nosy newspaper reporter, a HOT fire chief, and an unresolved missing persons case. There's a little of everything here: romance, sex, family, quirky characters, strong emotions, and a psychopath. But no vampires or zombies. Sorry. I love vamps but haven't written about them here. (Huge Anne Rice fan!)

So, a little bit about me. I write news and feature stories for my local weekly newspaper, the WATERBORO REPORTER ( if you want to read some of my non-fiction). I have a new job as a publishing assistant at an academic press. I write haiku and keep a journal and I participate in a local writing group that meets once a month.

I'm addicted to books. And coffee. And I'd love to hear from you if you want to drop me a line.
