A writer since childhood, I continued writing through college but put literary endeavors on hold to finish medical school and Family Medicine residency training. My medical career established, I returned to writing fiction.

I won a Lefty Award, was nominated for an Agatha Award and a Silver Falchion Award, and was chosen one of Suspense Magazine's best debuts of 2016.

“The light of God surrounds me.
The love of God enfolds me.
The power of God protects me.
The presence of God watches o'er me.
Wherever I am, God is.
All is well.”
Alexia Gordon, Murder in G Major

“She remembered watching a movie from some years ago, when she’d had nothing else to do while snowed in at a Denver hotel, something with Kellie Martin on The Women’s Network. A detective identified a singer’s killer by studying the audience in concert footage. The killer—a stalker—showed up in every film.”
Alexia Gordon, Murder in G Major

Unfortunately, I didn't learn much about the space program or Wernher von Braun from reading this book. It was short on evidence and long on conjecture, assumption, and pejorative insinuation. Von Braun was a footnote to the author's opinion about Germans.

Linda I see you're reading about the space program. My Dad worked on Mercury/Gemini programs and knew the first seven astronauts and met von Braun. We were in St. Louis at the time and he worked for McDonnell (now McDonnell/Douglas). I am a HUGE space program fan!!
