About this author

I'm the author of seventy-something novels, both women's fiction and mystery. I'm excited about my newest series, Goddesses Anonymous, which started with One Mountain Away and was followed last year by Somewhere Between Luck and Trust. The third book in the series, A River Too Wide, will be published soon.

Last year my husband and I moved from Arlington, Virginia, to Osprey, Florida, the state where both of us were raised, met, and married. In the summer we live in Chautauqua, New York. I'm a quilter and the mother of four children, whom I regard as my greatest creative endeavors. And I love my three grandchildren.

With NemoPart of the joy of spending summers in Chautauqua, New York, is listening to lectures. So many lectures!


This week we’re exploring health care. Today, for instance, I learned about new research into mental illness, a particular interest after spending time working with patients in a mental health center years ago. This afternoon I’ll attend a lecture on the cholera epidemic of 1833. Why? Among o...

Whatever you call us? Maybe we're Chapter Fifteen or Sixteen on the East Coast, but we're the preface in the West.”

I hope to. My publisher has the final say, but right now we have tentatively scheduled a novella in a Christmas anthology. We'll see.
