I'm a suspense author, speaker and writing contest judge. Feisty women survivors and strong, brainy men are my specialty, because they are the characters that most interest me, both in life and fiction.

My recent releases, The Elijah Black Trilogy, feature a male/female detective team on the hunt for serial killers in New York.

The Dianne Plan

My next conference will be at Killer Nashville in Nashville, TN on August 18th to the 21st. This is another terrific conference with a lot of wonderful speakers, a great bookroom, banquet as well as critique and pitch opportunities.  I'll be speaking on a panel or two, signing books and hanging out with old friends and new. 

Afterwards, I'm going on a fun trip to Sr. Louis, Missouri with my daughter. We'll go to the sculpture park, visit vintage stores and, I'm sure, eat too much at the local restaurants. This is "girl time" we've been talking about doing forever. Can't wait.
