Welcome to my site, where mystery and passion collide…

Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed of being a fireman, a police officer, an astronaut, a cowgirl, an FBI agent, a spy for the CIA, a forensic psychologist, an exorcist, and a scrappy detective like Nancy Drew or Jessica Fletcher. Then, she grew up and realized what she really wanted to be was an author. That way she could live out her dreams from the safety of her own front porch.



My current release is Murphy’s Law. This is a sweet romance with an incredibly brave, scarred Afghanistan veteran willing to risk her life and her heart for the people she loves. This story combines a little bit of my beloved dad, who was stationed at Chandler in Arizona and loved all the old stories of the Dutchman’s mine, and my admiration for the men and women of our Armed Forces who put their lives on the line for the freedom of the American people.

Rae Morgan traded a secure life in Stallion Springs, a small Arizona town, for a life of exotic adventure in the military. When a bombing in Afghanistan left her with devastating scars, she returned home to help run the family business. When her estranged father is murdered, she’s shocked to discover that ‘the one who got away’ is now the man investigating the crime.

Growing up, Murphy Hawke had one goal—to escape Stallion Springs and the racial bias against his mixed Apache/Caucasian heritage. A murder in the shadow of the Superstition Mountains returns DOI Special Agent Murphy Hawke to his hometown and the ‘girl’ he left behind. Only now, Rae’s all grown up, sexy, smart, and irresistible. He’d like nothing better than to rekindle the passion they’d once shared.

Unfortunately, she’s his chief suspect.
