Literally the worst timing …

Hi lovely readers,

As you might be able to tell from the title of this post, this is an update about my Pepper Brooks series. And, as you can also tell from the title, it’s not the news many of you were hoping for. At this point, I’m thinking I’ll have to push the release of Literally Finished to 2022.

With the Delta variant growing in strength, I’m worried like this fall will not be a good time to travel, especially not to a different country.

Contrary to the sad title, I do have some good news as well! Other than Pepper’s series being on hold, I have releases coming up in both my Pebble Cove and Stoneybrook series. NOT BY OOLONG SHOT is out in a week and A GRILLED SUSPECT will be coming out at the end of October. Read more …


2021 Publishing Schedule

Hi everyone!

Boy am I happy to see the end of 2020 (as I know we all are). Looking ahead to 2021 brings so much more promise and excitement, but it also brings a whole slew of new releases I can’t wait to tell you about. I’m working in quarters this year, so you’ll see what I’m planning for each one. Read more …


In the works

Here’s a little update about what I’ve been working on and what’s coming soon! STEEPED IN SUSPICION is out as an audiobook! Jennifer is already working on MATCHA DO ABOUT MURDER, so that will be coming in the next couple months as well. 🥳🥳🥳 I love how Jennifer brought this new series to life and can’t wait for you to experience it too. Those of you who preordered A BITTER SHOT or CHAI, CHAI AGAIN may have noticed I had to push back those preorders a bit. Sorry for the inconvenience there, but I promise they’ll be in your hands soon. To make up for it, I’d love to share the next few upcoming covers with you! First … here’s the next Stoneybrook book (number 8). A SKETCHY DEMISE will follow our Stoneybrook gang as they try to clear Suze’s Read more …


Pebble Cove is my new favorite place!

Today is release day for the first book in my new cozy mystery series!

I’m so excited to share Pebble Cove, Rosemary, Asher, former Mayor Meow, the Rickster, and the rest of the group with you. I’m hard at work on book three, A Score to Kettle, so I’ve been living, breathing, and dreaming Pebble Cove for the last handful of months. It definitely feels like home and I can’t wait for you to fall in love too.

If you were stumped by my mention of a Mayor Meow above 👆🏼 let me explain. 😂

Escape to Stoneybrook

The world is pretty crazy right now. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been finding a lot of solace in books. It’s so nice to be able to escape into a different world where things are a little simpler, even if it’s just for a handful of hours.

One of my favorite places to escape? Stoneybrook, of course! I mean, there are murders, but also cats so … 🤷🏻‍♀️ 😂

The next two audiobooks for the Stoneybrook Mysteries are now out. Leave a comment or shoot me an email if you’d like a code to listen for free. I also have codes for the entire series, so you can start from the beginning if you’d like!
