Thank you for visiting my website and blog. My first novel, Bailey's Law, will be released on October 27, 2016.
I grew up in northern Minnesota, and after college moved around the midwest until landing in Houston where I've lived for over 30 years. I've always enjoyed writing and am a former English and psychology teacher. I'm fortunate to have a husband, two children, and three grandchildren, along with a great extended family and two German shepherds.
I wrote free verse poetry off and on for years, and began short story and novel writing several years ago.
Mystery stories interest me because issues that I'm passionate about lend themselves to crime stories. For example, in my short story featuring Jack Bailey, the issue of DUI's going unpunished arises. Bailey's Law addresses the problem of victimizing women and campus assault in our current society.
Blending good and evil through my characters is an ongoing challenge as well as a pleasure. I look forward to writing snippets on everyday topics, focusing on writing, reading, psychology, and an occasional dog!
