I have taught high school English and have been a social worker. I then became an Investigator of Fraud for the PA Office of Inspector General. After serving there, I opened my own Private Investigations firm.

I now reside in Port St Lucie, Florida, and have moved into my new career as an author. In November of 2014, I published an autobiography told through short stories and poems in GANDY DANCING ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

In March, 2018, I published my second book, a crime fiction novel entitled COAL HOLLOW AN ECHO in the ABYSS. It is based on my experience as an investigator.

Characters are the author's voice, and you subtly find nuances in them that drive the story. In Coal Hollow: An Echo in the Abyss, the main character is Caroline Davis, a person with jagged edges who is a Private Investigator. She has had to surmount deep emotional obstacles in her life and battles fear of failure. While investigating, her empathy for others in crisis is a strong driver. She is also a spiritual person who believes God has given her discernment for this career and especially in this investigation. Caroline lacks confidence in herself but not in her investigative abilities. In many ways, she is a dichotomy.(less)

Cher and 1 other person liked Daniel Kemp's review of Heart of Darkness:
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
"Although I have read other books by Joseph Conrad I did not find this an easy book to get into, but once there the writing is hugely impressive. The tale is about a sailor, or pirate depending on your viewpoint, named Marlow recounting the story o..." Read more of this review »
