Welcome to my website!

I write clean, classic whodunits with heart and humor (and equal parts Agatha Christie, Nancy Drew, and the Gilmore Girls.) I like to refer to my main character as The Sleuth Next Door. The sleuths in my books are regular people just like you and me, although probably a bit nosier and bolder! 

If you like stories clean with interesting characters, a dose of humor, and a twisty puzzle to solve, then we have a lot in common. Check out my books. Hope you enjoy them.

Stay sharp and happy reading!
