I have big news!


Murder Undetected, a story of suspense, along with Murder Unrehearsed, my debut mystery, is now available in several Pacific Northwest bookstores and at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, iTunes, KOBO, and other fine retailers.



What Else I’m writing:

You'll find my name in Pacific Yachting magazine on the monthly galley column - short essays about adventures on the water and boat-friendly recipes.



I've begun  my third, so far unnamed, heist / mystery / romantic comedy featuring Chloe Eugenie Duval, who helps herself to the odd diamond that is left lying around by a careless owner.

Mr. Moose and Mr. Bear is simmering on the back burner.

Merryweather Moose hates his name, because other kids taunt him by calling him "Merry," so insists on being called Mr. Moose. In solidarity, his good friend, Berry Bear, becomes Mr. Bear. That and other stories about the stuffed animals who lived aboard with me and got into trouble whenever I left them alone.


About me:


I am a foodie and fanatic about good chocolate, a physical therapist (now retired), and a private pilot. I lived aboard a classic wood motor yacht for 17 years, and in my dreams, I'm a famous watercolor artist, a pianist of renown, and a globe trotting yogini. And, oh yes, an apartment in Paris would be nice.



Go Read!


I hope you will find my website occasionally funny or the source of a new recipe. But don't stay here too long. Go find a book and curl up for a good long read.
