Nice to meet you! I’ve been reading mystery novels since I was in the sixth grade. I enjoy some great who-done-it stories and have written pretty much that way. The story to me is much more interesting trying to figure out who the antagonist could be.

I love to write with scenes of nature. Anywhere from sun-ups to sundown scenes to mountaintops, and hills. These stories create a visual of actually being right there at that place and time with my characters.

I hope that you enjoy my novels, as much as I did writing, and creating them. Writing is a journey, and with friends, this helps with a bigger, and better vision.

My husband Neil, my dog Cream, and my cat Oliver are the finest part of my everyday lifestyle. That goes without mentioning my children, and grandchildren. We live in Western Pennsylvania.
