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

I enjoyed the Killer Nashville Conference and my trip to St. Louis with my daughter, Colleen. We saw the arch, took a riverboat cruise and visited Laumeier Sculpture Park. On top of that, we had fun shopping and eating way too much. 

For those of you who love podcasts, I did a fun one with The Tornado Alley Mystery Writers recently. 

Just download the app and you'll see my name in the list with other wonderful authors. 

The last thing I have scheduled for this year is a signing at my public library in Canon City, CO on November 5th. I'll be there with about 20 other authors and I know we'll have a blast. 

Take care until next time.
