Welcome! Thanks for dropping by. I write cozy mysteries set in the recent past when detectives solved crimes by their brains and perseverance and without the aid of cell phones or the internet. My stories are clean reads with no graphic sex, gory violence or bad language. Please stop by periodically to see the new books added to the page.

The Sandy Fairfax series has a former 1970s’ teen idol turned amateur sleuth. The heartthrob of the hit TV series Buddy Brave, Boy Sleuth is now a divorcee and recovering alcoholic. He finds that making a comeback can be murder! On each gig he stumbles (sometimes literally) across a body. He’s also reconnecting with his family and kids, plus he’s juggling his new girlfriend with his ex-wife.

The Cold War goes cozy in the Psychedelic Spy series set in 1967. Hippies, rock music, the space race, secret agents, cats and small town living all add up to murder. Noelle McNabb is an actress at the Cozy Christmas Family Fun Park in Yuletide, Indiana. She longs for the lights of Hollywood, but finds real-life drama in her own backyard when she goes undercover with the spy agency SIAMESE (Secret Intelligence Apparatus for Midwest Enemy Surveillance and Espionage). Noelle and street-savvy agent Destiny King make an awesome spy-chasing team.
