Aloha to my fellow writers, readers, and anyone who drops by this page. After many years of dreaming about living on the Big Island of Hawaii, my husband Bill and I finally made the move from Austin, Texas, in October 2020. This was a terrible time to do this, as Covid-19 caused many roadblocks before, during, and after our move. However, we made it, as did our two dogs, Meryl Streep and Lord Byron. You can read all about our harrowing adventure on my blog post at this link.
Below are the three novels I've published so far. You can read more about me and my writings on my author pages at Amazon and Goodreads. Please click on each book cover to take you to its Amazon page.
Here's a pic of me signing books at the Texas Book Festival in Austin, where I was a member of the Writers League of Texas. The group sponsors a booth each year for members to sell their work. The annual festival was founded under the guidance of then Texas First Lady Laura Bush, a former librarian.
I'm currently dreaming up a cozy mystery-thriller called THE WOMEN'S CLUB OF GREATER WRIGHTWAY. In this allegorical story, someone is killing the influential women of a small town, and the mayor and police chief must find out whodunit before another body drops. This novel is based on my experiences living in a small resort community called Lakeway, near Austin, Texas, where the women's and men's clubs dominated the culture and politics. I hope some of the allegorical nature of this work will remind readers of the current political divide.
