I'm all about good, clean, fun in the Florida sun, so I write feel-good romantic mysteries short enough to be read in one afternoon beside the pool or at the beach. Some people even read them in a hammock in the back yard. Readers love the humor and the quirky characters in every one of my novels.

In FINDING MIRANDA, a blind deejay has no trouble at all keeping track of a librarian who seems invisible to everyone - except would-be killers. Winner, 2017 LibraryJournal Indie Ebook Awards--Mystery.

In SYLVIE'S COWBOY, a rancher inherits the spoiled daughter of a former business partner. They must resolve their Odd Couple issues to deal with her father's murderer.

MUDSILLS &amp; MOONCUSSERS is the tale of a Civil War Yankee spy in Key West, literally the Southernmost town in America. Too bad his new lady friend may be a spy for the other side.

SCHIFFLEBEIN'S FOLLY is what people call likable Lloyd Schifflebein's adopting six special-needs children, and then looking for a wife. House rabbits, dishonest politicians, and talking crockery complicate his life until he gets supernatural help to fix his bizarre household.

In DUBY'S DOCTOR, murderous arms dealers try to kill a a former undercover agent and the spinster lady doctor who knows him only as a recovering John Doe patient. John and his doctor know nothing of his life before recent injuries wiped out his memory.

LOU'S TATTOOS is indeed &quot;A Comedy of Errors.&quot; Tattoo artist, Lourdes O'Malley, has motorcycle-gang friends who mistake her boyfriend for a hit man out to kill her. Mistaken identities and silly mix-ups turn this romantic adventure into &quot;Romeo &amp; Juliet meet The Three Stooges.&quot;

I love writing novels and stories, and I've also written for radio, stage, and screen. Some of my many hats include musician, teacher, and librarian. I currently have no tattoos and donot own a motorcycle.
