welcome

In small towns and big cities alike, secrets abound … 

Join me and Erin Murphy, star of the Food Lovers’ Village Mysteries, as we unravel mysteries big and small in the tiny town of Jewel Bay, Montana, a lakeside resort community on the road to Glacier National Park.

Then journey with me to Seattle, where Pepper Reece and the crew at Seattle Spice in the venerable Pike Place Market explore secrets of the past and the present, in my Spice Shop Mysteries.

I love taking readers to these oh-so-memorable places, introducing you to their intriguing inhabitants and digging into their hearts and minds. And if I can make you think, laugh, and feel a bit hungry all at the same time—well, then, we’ve got the perfect author-reader friendship!

Pour a cup of tea and come on in!
