I write mystery novels and short stories. So far I have 20 in print - with more coming. My newest mystery series begins with Night Watch and introduces my new series character, boat captain Em Ridge.

Other series include the Corporal Roger Sheppard mysteries, The Teri Blake-Addison PI thrillers and the Fog Point mysteries, as well as a number of romantic suspense novels and short stories.

Hello Cathy,

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back and answer this question! I'm just figuring out my way around Goodreads as an author. :)

The answer to your question is YES. I believe all of my books have a 'hint' of romance in them. In my opinion, romance is the key to all good fiction. Really, it is. In Night Watch, which begins a brand new mystery series for me - the romance between my key characters is going to develop over the course of several books, rather than in one book, as it does in all LIS books.

I have written both police procedurals and PI novels. My most popular PI novels are the Teri Blake-Addison novels, STEAL AWAY and THE KING JAMES MURDERS. That series has 2 books in it so far, My newest mystery features a woman sailing captain who gets embroiled in a mystery. That one is NIGHT WATCH, and is my baby because it's the newest!

Thanks for asking. (less)

I’ve written extensively here about the genre of "literary thriller" and how books in that bear that classification are my favorite goto reads. I love a suspense novel that is so well-written it could stand side by side next to any "literary" novel at any time of day. I have also written here about the late Ruth Rendell and how her "literary" mysteries and short stories were so influential in m... Read more of this blog post »
