MYSTERY-SUSPENSE THRILLERS are my soft spot. I was introduced to mysteries at 12 reading "Nancy Drew" and "The Hardy Boys" - from that point I was hooked. My years in journalism helped to hone my research skills then my own curiosity and imagination went from there...Several book clubs invited me to discuss my research and premise for "24 Sussex Drive" & "Behind The Sun".  Then "Fine Points Malice And Payback"  was selected for the 2019 Distinctive Favorites Award...
