I write suspense novels and short stories and particularly enjoy probing the mind of cunning, psychopathic villains. Please visit the Novels page for descriptions of my novels and for ordering information.
I regularly post my short stories and flash fiction. Most, but not all, are in the mystery/suspense genre. Enjoy.
The anthology, Carolina Crimes: Nineteen Tales of Love, Lust and Longing, which included my short story, “Happy Pills” received an Anthony Award nomination! Winners will be selected at the 2015 Bouchercon convention in October. Anyone who attends the convention this year or attended last year voted for the nominees. Attendees at this year’s convention will vote for the 2015 winners.
