Hello and welcome to my website. I’m so glad you dropped by to visit, and hope you’ll hang around a while.

Let me introduce myself…I’m a hybrid author with eclectic tastes in both reading and writing. My novels have been traditionally published with Kensington Books/Lyrical Press, and (soon to come) Lyrical Underground. In addition, I also have a few indie titles in the mix. Primarily, I’m an author who writes mysteries and suspense, often with a dash or more of romance, but I also enjoy mythical, historical, and paranormal elements as well as speculative fiction.

As an author who likes to blend genres, I hope you’ll find something in the smorgasbord I have to offer.

Cover Reveal to ComeA THOUSAND YESTERYEARS
Book 1 in the Point Pleasant Series
Genre: Suspense/mystery
Length: 86,000 Words
Publisher: Kensington Publishing/Lyrical Underground Imprint
Publication Date: April 2016

On a cold December night in 1967, the Silver Bridge between Point Pleasant, West Virginia and Gallipolis, Ohio unexpectedly collapsed during the peak of rush hour traffic claiming forty-six lives, most perishing in the frigid waters of the Ohio River.

Just a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn. Now, fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Much has changed about the once thriving river community. The ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town as does the legend of a giant winged creature known as the Mothman.

Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse, but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware there are darker emotions than grief tangled up in the Silver Bridge tragedy.

Eve’s arrival triggers the unraveling of a fifteen-year-old secret that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of danger.  A secret more terrifying than the bridge collapse and the frightful legend of the Mothman:

A murderer stalks the streets of Point Pleasant.
