I write lighthearted cozy mysteries because that's what I like to read. I'm all about solving puzzles, but I think the ride to the slammer should be entertaining, too.

I'm from the South, and Southern culture winds its way through every word I write. Give me sweet tea and pimento cheese, and I'll happily toss a "y'all" or two your way.

I'm a word nerd and an unabashed foodie. 

I've been a writer for as long as I can remember. I used to give my parents handmade books of dramatic, angst-filled poetry for Christmas. (Sorry about that, Mom. I owe you a scarf or something.)

Like many creatives before me, I tried to hide my true calling behind degrees in biology and business. But after more than 15 years working in healthcare marketing for a Fortune 500 company, I traded my MBA for stretch pants and a laptop - and I've never looked back.

I live in North Carolina with my husband, 3 kids, and an enormous lap dog named Murphy.

I'm a member of Sisters in Crime and Women's Fiction Writers of America, and I enjoy interacting with writers and readers of many genres. Are you a book lover, too? Then you're my kind of person. Book people rock. 

Let me guess ... you're tired of politics, the carpool lane is sucking the life out of you, and your laundry (unfortunately) isn't folding itself.

You want to escape for a few minutes, to curl up with a book that makes you laugh.

There's already too much seriousness out there, don't you think?
