I’ve loved words ever since I read 103 books in Miss Vopelensky’s first-grade class. That’s when I first dreamed of becoming a writer. My dream came true many years later when my first book was published at the age of forty.
Now after more than a decade away from publishing I’m thrilled to be back and writing in a new genre–cozy mysteries!
My first mystery, Murder Most Sweet (A Bookish Baker Mystery) released in September 2020, and my non-fiction book Thanks for the Mammogram! rereleased in a revised and updated version, also in September. My second cozy mystery, Hope, Faith, & a Corpse (A Faith Chapel Mystery) released in January 2021 and Deadly Delights, my second Bookish Baker Mystery, is releasing in June 2021.
