Y’all, y’all, y’all!

I’m hard at work on my new series, Pebble Cove Teahouse Mysteries. I’m loving how they are turning out, but probably the most fun I’ve had so far was ordering a map for the series! Hanna at The Book Cover Bakery made it for me and now you can see the town of Pebble Cove just like I envisioned it. Each book’s map will look slightly different, with the places important to that story marked and highlighted. Here’s the map for book one! Read more …

Hi. Welcome to the second installment of “Here’s a thing I do.”

In this one, I focus on HIKING!

Okay, so hiking. Here’s the deal. I’m definitely a day hiker. I’ve backpacked overnight, but I definitely prefer sleeping in my own comfy bed after a hard day’s work. Also, I’m not particularly good at hiking. In addition to being an unapologetic fair weather hiker, I also have to stop a lot and take my time, and I ALWAYS end the day with bruised toenails (which makes me highly suspicious I’m doing something wrong). But I love it.

New Release!

Book five is live! Here’s the synopsis:

“I love you to death”

Winter quarter of grad school has Pepper living and breathing Brontë sisters. When a body is found near the mysterious mansion on the hill, Pepper is too close to the victim for comfort… and perhaps the killer.

Pepper’s interest in the case becomes an obsession when Alex is threatened. Between mysterious notes, long-buried secrets, and that feeling someone is watching, Pine Crest starts to feel a whole lot like the gothic moors of Wuthering Heights. The line between love and obsession is as thin as a knife’s blade—literally—and it’s up to Pepper to find the killer before they strike again.
