“Fearlessly funny … and a plot as neatly twisted as an accent scarf.”
—Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning and national bestselling author of SCOT AND SODA.
“Light and sassy … appealing characters and snappy dialogue.”
“A wryly amusing cozy debut lent credence by the author’s own experience as a cancer survivor.”
“[A] warmhearted, humorous addition to the pantheon of clerical sleuths.”
“[A] pleasing series launch.”
“A promising new series…Readers will finish this mystery already hungry for more.”
—BookPage, starred review
“Thanks for the Mammogram! isn’t for every woman. It’s only for those who’ve experienced cancer, loved someone with cancer, met someone with cancer, worried about getting cancer, saw a made-for-TV movie about cancer once, read about cancer on a bus poster . . . in other words, honey, this book is for you. What an uplifting, uproarious approach to an otherwise serious, scary subject. Buy a copy for every woman you know!”
—Liz Curtis Higgs, author of Bad Girls of the Bible and It’s Good to Be Queen
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. Watch for my second cozy mystery, Hope, Faith, & a Corpse (A Faith Chapel Mystery) coming out in January 2021 and Deadly Delights, my second Bookish Baker Mystery, releasing in June 2021.
