I’m excited to announce that my new (and first) mystery novel, Faux Finished, will be available in May 2021. See a short summary on the Books menu tab. More info is forthcoming.

For music lovers, my short story, “Under the Boardwalk” is one of 22 available in the mystery anthology, Peace, Love, and Crime: Crime Fiction Inspired by the Songs of the ’60s. I’m proud to say I share this spotlight with 21 excellent authors. Buy the book at Untreed Reads and other indie and online retailers. At right, signing at Park Road Books in Charlotte, N.C.
