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.

Thanks for asking.

Can you hear the dueling banjos?

As the summer nears its end, so does my list of thriller-suspense-novel-beach-read recommendations. Today I’d like to end this summer series by recommending The River at Night by Erica Ferencik. The River at NightThis is one I could not put down.

The novel begins:

An excellent read. It was both frightening and revealing and I learned so much from this book. I had read Kendzior's 'The View from Flyover Country' and so as soon as I heard she had another book out, I immediately reserved it.
