I studied theology and psychology from Grace Bible College in Grand Rapids, MI. After, I attended Walden University and earned a master's in forensic psychology. I have recently finished my master's in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University and am now licensed as a

The inspiration you have in your own life will resonate with others, simply by existing in this shared existence called humanity. Further, if you're writing isn't an expression of your joy in life then readers will pick up on it and move on. I'm not saying this is a foolproof way of making your millions, but I'm a strong believer in doing what you love and only then finding out how to make a living at it. (less)

So much fun

I missed some of the previous characters but Vlora and Oleg are great and the new ones really grow on you fast. One thing I love here is the author knows when to make a fight last and when to cut it quick. And that happens beautifully.

Solid story

I love these books, in spite of and even because of the criticism I have of the turn they’ve taken. This was one of the most compact of the recent ones, with a case that was different enough from the norm that it got interesting.

Terry McMillan
“Too many of us are hung up on what we don't have, can't have, or won't ever have. We spend too much energy being down, when we could use that same energy – if not less of it – doing, or at least trying to do, some of the things we really want to do.”
Terry McMillan, Disappearing Acts

“In one aspect, yes, I believe in ghosts, but we create them. We haunt ourselves.”
