USA Today Bestselling Author



There’s a short bio on the homepage, but this is a little more about me.

I’ve been married to a farmboy from Iowa for 27 years, and for 21 of those years we ran a fast food business together. This business is what prompted me to want to kill people. But I don’t look good in orange, and I couldn’t leave my horses behind, so I decided to write mysteries. My favorite books were mystery, crime fiction, thrillers and suspense, so the transition from reader to writer wasn’t too bad.

Prior to making a living writing, I owned a jewelry company where I made handmade lampwork glass beads and incorporated them into custom jewelry. The business grew into a huge endeavor, but after 14 years I was burned out. Besides, by then the writing had taken over as my first love.

So that’s how I got my first book published in 2011, and I’ve never looked back.

Things have changed over the years, and though I started by only selling on Amazon, I currently sell on Amazon, Kobo, BN, Apple Books, Hoopla, Overdrive, and now we are selling from the website!
