Through all her career choices she has continued to have a passion for writing. This stemmed from childhood whereas an only child she developed a vivid imagination spending most of her time making things up and thinking the Incredible Hulk lived in her closet.

Proud of her vast experiences in life from barrel racing to being on the dance

Stella Cavanaugh planned the trip to Thief River Falls to get away from things and relax but instead stumbled into trouble.


The bus ride to Thief River Falls was uneventful until they arrived at the hotel and not everyone got off the bus.


One of the vacation goers was dead.


But how? Who?

“Much less all the other things people post that they really should keep to themselves. Like when Peter Dyer commented on Teresa Green’s post of the picture of her in a bathing suit, saying she looked hot. And his wife saw it? He’s lucky he’s still alive.” “Facebook has really brought out the stupid in people. Like his wife wasn’t going to find out. And when she did, what did he think would happen?” I shook my head, thinking about his stupidity.”
Laina Turner, Friends and Foes
