My background is radio. I worked in the industry for nearly twenty-five years and did everything from news to commercial copy writing. I credit my experience with radio for helping me to develop an ear for storytelling. In 2014 I signed with Henery Press and began publishing the first of The Carol Childs Mysteries, about a female reporter who works for a busy talk radio station in Los Angeles.

Currently, I'm working on a new series with Misty Dawn, a former Hollywood psychic to the stars, who I've spun off from The Carol Childs Mysteries. If readers think I'm pulling from my own experiences on this one, they'd be wrong. I feel as though I've jumped from the broadcast antenna into the sandbox.

Stay tuned.

I try to get it in the best shape I can and then move on to the next. I don't start the day with the goal of writing a set number of words, but with setting a scene and then working from there. Sometimes, if I'm stuck I move ahead to another scene. It doesn't matter if it's in order or not. Eventually, I know I'll be rewriting it anyway. The important thing is to keep the story flowing inside me and onto the page. (less)

Completing a trilogy

I’ve just finished the third book in The Misty Dawn mysteries, which completes the trilogy. I enjoyed Writing these books as a chronological series and I’m curious how readers feel about trilogies. Do you follow in order? How do you feel when you’ve completed a trilogy?
