Get It Now!
Introducing the latest (and final) novel in the “Laurie and Tim” mystery series, “Meeting Mayhem!” It’s currently available in print and for Kindle download. It’s set in Ireland, and Laurie and Tim are on their honeymoon. Sounds idyllic, right? Well, it would be if it weren’t for the dead body…

“Meeting Mayhem” will join my 3 previous books, “Meeting Murder,” “Meeting Darkness,” and “Meeting Scandal.” (Yes, they’re part of a series, but you can read them in any order.)

I also write essays and blog posts, as well as maintaining an active social media presence. Thanks for visiting, and whatever you choose, I hope you enjoy the read…
