Woman's World!

I was totally shocked to hear that my second book, Bear Witness to Murder, was reviewed in an October issue of Woman's World magazine! WOW!!!

This was great publicity -- and I have to thank Kensington, my publisher. They have a fabulous art department and have given me wonderful book covers, and some fantastic promotional opps. Like appearing a "Mixer" event in Chicago!

Unfortunately, some of my photos didn't turn out. SIGH. It was still fun!

Book 2 Arrives!

Here's another "shelfie" of my second book in the series, and I often check the bookstores in my local area to sign copies. B&N staff loves to see authors coming in -- it's also fun to browse for books while I'm there. I've always been (and always will be) a huge reader of mysteries, historical mysteries, fantasy, biographies, and other genres. I love books and I cannot lie! All my family knew this early on.

The Kensington "Mixer" was great fun - fans got free books, and we got to sign them! From left, Anna Loan-Wilsey, Alyssa Maxwell, and Meg Macy.

My family took a much needed vacation to our favorite spot in Michigan -- Mackinac Island. It was magical, and we enjoyed every minute. So if you haven't had a vacation in a while, please take the time to kick back, relax, enjoy any time together you can. You will never regret it.
