About  Me


As a child growing up in an Air Force family, I, like so many military children moved around a lot.  So often that I attended high school in three different states.  I found myself dreaming of small town life, neighbors knowing neighbors, and everyone attending the town social.  When I began to write mysteries it made sense - they would take place in the small quaint town I always wanted, except for the murders...


I am a professional author and speaker and have written the ScotShop Mystery Series, Biscuit McKee Series, A Slaying Song Tonight and a nonfiction book to help aspiring writers, From The Tip Of My Pen.   I, along with my rescue cats,  live and write quietly among the trees beside a creek on the other side of Hog Mountain in Georgia.    In my spare time, I love to read, sing, knit, put together jigsaw puzzles, feed the birds and volunteer at my grandchildren's school library. Should I ever crave the attention of canines, my two grand-dogs (Australian Shepherd and a GBBD-Great Big Brown Dog) live nearby and provide lots of doggie licks and laughter.


Always looking for inspiration, I live my life with enthusiasm, excitement, and positive expectancy.



I look forward to learning about you.  Please send me an email or connect with me on my official facebook page.

All the best,
