From the Author

Stunner: A Ronnie Lake Mystery is my debut novel as an author. With several decades of working in television production under my belt with talented teams of co-workers, I welcomed a new chapter of settling into the more solitary life of a writer. After two years of writing and creating mystery detective Ronnie Lake, I felt ready to publish. Because I so enjoy mystery and suspense, I knew from the start that would become Ronnie Lake's world.

One ofthe advantages of writing in mid-life is the wealth of experience we have todraw upon. In Stunner, Ronnie Lake is like many Babyboomers these days--a fifty-something, divorced empty-nester who was downsized out of her corporatecareer. She's trying to figure out her next act when her niece comes to her ina panic that her recently widowed father (Ronnie's brother) may want to marryagain. It's not only that his intended is a much younger woman, but thatstrange events have been happening ever since they've come home. Her niecesuggests they hire a private investigator, but Ronnie decides to see what shecan find out first. After all, how hard can it be? Bottom line--this is a storywith a universal theme of betrayal and family loyalty with a protagonist whois not afraid to jump into the new endeavor of amateur woman detective.
Whether it's as a Kindle eBook, paperback or audiobook, I hope you enjoy Stunner!
