Welcome to my Author Page and my literary world. My books reflect the diversity of my interests and tend to stretch across different genres rather than strictly staying inside bounds and include memoir, romantic suspense, mystery, and erotica. 

UPDATES: I'm currently at work on Book #3 of the Cota Club series, a romantic suspense featuring Tate McCormick's story.

Dialysis: a Memoir describes my experience of kidney failure and life After.

Love and Money: a Santa Barbara Mystery is Book #1 of the Cota Club series and focuses on Kristi McCormick, rookie PI on her first case.

The Offering is Book #2 of the Cota Club series and stars Carla DeVille, CIA agent extraordinaire as she investigates a sect of the Illuminati.

Finding Clarity: Romantic Suspense in the Humboldt Redwoods tells the interwoven tale of a heroine and hero who find clarity in their lives as they confront the wilds of both men and nature in the Emerald Triangle.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California, with a side trip around the world as a kid, college at Harvard, and a few unforgettable years in Santa Barbara. My literary taste runs the gamut from Shakespeare, Poe, and Austen, to Elizabeth Lowell, Toni Morrison, and Jo Nesbo. Though I often read dark and tormented stories that plumb the inner demons of tortured souls, I prefer to write lighter books that my readers can have fun with.
