From the Author
I write what I love to read, what fascinates me and the things I fear the most. As a reader, I love to be kept in suspense while at the same time matching wits against the main character. Fast-paced, lots of action, endearing characters, and a vicarious experience I can't find anywhere else.
As such, I offer the same thrill-ride to you. I spend countless hours of research before I write one word. Read the acknowledgements in my books and you'll see it takes a village to create a world worth spending time in. Chatting with experts and living the scenes myself in order to feel my characters' terror, sadness, pain, is one of my favorite parts of the process. Forensics, criminal investigations, witnessing what happens to the body after death, and delving into the mind of serial killers is what intrigues me most.
My focus, however, is always on you. I hope you'll enjoy reading my stories as much as I've enjoyed writing them. Because if it weren't for you, dear reader, I wouldn't get to live my dream. Thank you for your interest in my work.

WINGS OF MAYHEM, Book 1
