I am Cozy Mystery and Chic-Lit writer with three novels under my belt.

DYING TO OPEN is a Cozy Mystery and the first novel in the MAILBOX MYSTERIES series. – Postal carrier, April Sparks, uses mail, gossip, and secrets to solve a murder in an upscale beach town. (Books two and three are in development).

BAYOU DOLLS is a light-hearted mystery. – All Sage Gibson wanted was her deserved promotion. She never imagined she’d have to chase after a teenage wannabe voodoo princess in the bogs of the southern bayou, during a hurricane, to get it.

OBSSESIONISTA is a Chick-Lit novel. – Miri Levitt is a neat freak from a “we’re not that Jewish” pot-smoking family, navigating her messy life in hope of finding a soulmate while trying not to appear needy.

I think of my writing as dwelling in the intersections where misunderstandings crash into comedy. After a career in city government, authoring hundreds of constrained public documents, I am thrilled to write entertaining fiction. I’m a member of Sisters in Crime and The Westside Writer’s Lab. My master’s degree is in International Policy with an emphasis in Cross-Cultural Communications and Social Psychology.

When not writing, I can be found with my fabulous husband and our bearded collie hiking the Santa Monica Mountains while debating urban planning.
