    The House on Maple Street

    My debut novel, The House on Maple Street, is out now.

    From the back cover: Excited for a fresh new start, Hillary Altman is about to begin her first semester of graduate school at small New England college. Ever the procrastinator, Hillary waits to the last minute to find housing. But fate smiles upon her, when she takes a room in a picturesque Victorian home, run as a boarding house. But Hillary quickly finds, that all is not as it seems at The House on Maple Street…

    My Next Novel

    My work in progress is titled Ruth Long, Age 88 and is book one of a six book series. Ruth Long is the un-apologetically sarcastic matriarch of a mid-west family. The story is a first person narrative as Ruth reflects on her life, her relationships, and her family. Because Ruth Long has recently died. The story takes place on the day of her funeral as she picks apart the way her family choose to memorialize her with a deliciously sharp wit.


    The Package, a Novella

    My new novella, The Package, is currently available in e-book on Amazon. Kindle Unlimited readers can read for free.

    From the Back Cover:

    Abandoned by her mother in early childhood, Noa was raised by her distant, apathetic grandmother. But a trip to the library in search of her new love, spy thrillers, leads Noa to a life long friendship with a librarian. Fast forward and Noa has established a successful travel blog and her librarian friend has become more like family.

    A note in the pocket of a vintage jacket turns a working trip to Vancouver into a mission for a spy international network. The mission is simple. Take a package to a hotel restroom and leave. When things take an unexpected turn, Noa suddenly finds herself in a high stakes game of cat and mouse. Noa quickly finds all the novels in the world are no preparation for the game she’s playing. Will she complete her mission?

As I […]
