I am a serial artist. I grew up in Indianapolis, the daughter of an artist and granddaughter of a pianist, teacher and honored supporter of musical arts. Playing music and creating art were a way of life when I entered college as a fashion model and musician.

But somewhere along the road to fame and fortune, I married my best friend and became a mother. While raising kids I tried painting, drawing, jewelry making and even colorful furniture re-design, until finally settling on a successful career teaching piano lessons. As my children grew, I blogged (journaled) about my childhood and the drama of daily life. It was a creative outlet for the inner me that, trust me, no one wants to read that. I began to fantasize about a vacation with only my laptop for company. I had stories to tell. When I finally put pen to paper, fingertips to the keyboard, I wrote four manuscripts.

 I currently live in Madison Wisconsin with my husband and two dogs. 

Psychological Thriller is my love and female characters drive my stories. With its sociopathic characters and twists and turns, it gives a ride like no other.

My debut novel BEST KEPT SECRETS will hit the shelves in October 2019 thanks to Jenny Chen and Crooked Lane Books. Find me on amazon or goodreads and be sure to write a review!

Happy reading!

Morgan Jewell and Fay Ramsey are enjoying their last summer together before college. Fay is shy, with a controlling mother, and Morgan is the perfect, wild, loud-mouthed yang to Fay's ying. But when Fay is found dead, Morgan's entire world crumbles. Years later, Morgan is still haunted by the abrupt end to her best friend's life. She knew Fay held a secret in those final days, but Morgan, now a homicide detective, has failed to make a picture out of the crooked puzzle pieces she left behind. Nothing makes sense. The leads have run dry. Until she's called to the scene of a murder: a woman whose body is left mangled, too similar to Fay's to ignore.
