Thank you for visiting my page. I'm a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters In Crime, Willamette Writers, IBPA, and Oregon Writers Colony. With my debut novel, Shallow Waters, I introduced a thrilling new mystery series set in my native state of Oregon, alongside our rugged Pacific coast. The second installment, Midnight Beach, continued the excitement with a story based on a real-life crime. Code: Tsunami, the third book in the series, is - I desperately hope - NOT based on a real-life future event. Dark Sand, the fourth installment, picks up the action one year after the earthquake and tsunami. Book 5 in the series, tentatively entitled Phantom Cove, is underway and will be published in late 2022. Born in the southwest corner of Oregon in a small town not unlike my fictional Port Stirling, I now live in Estacada, Oregon, with my charming husband, Steve, a technology entrepreneur. Before turning to writing novels, I enjoyed a long career in corporate communications in such varied industries as tourism, healthcare, and sports. Since 2000, I've owned Paris Communications, a marketing, PR, and publishing firm. Like many Oregonians, I'm passionate about gardening, and earned Master Gardener status. A true plant nerd, I'm obsessively zealous about growing vegetables, although with 23 roses and counting, one could also make the case that I'm a tiny bit obsessed with roses, too. I love the outdoors, particularly in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and I'm happiest hiking, playing bad golf, and enjoying the beaches, rivers, and lakes. A determined, avid traveler since my teens, I've visited dozens of countries around the world. While every place has its charms if you look hard enough, I include Scotland, the Galapagos Islands, Switzerland, Maui, and France’s Dordogne region among my favorites. High on my post-Covid travel list currently are the Shetland Islands, Japan, and New Zealand. Thank you for reading!Read more Read less
