Introducing my first children’s book, “Astray and the Shelter Dogs!” It’s the first of a planned series about shelter dogs looking for a home. Wide-eyed pup “Astray” unites his new friends to help one dog in particular.

“Astray and the Shelter Dogs” joins my 4 whodunits, “Meeting Mayhem,” “Meeting Scandal,” “Meeting Darkness,” and “Meeting Murder” (yes, they’re a series, but you can read them in any order). For Kindle only, there’s my essay collection and a young adult novella.

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