When I was in my thirties and single I was an adoption advocate and adopted four daughters. Now I live on the coast of Maine, and write mysteries and historical novels about people searching for love, acceptance, and a place to call home. I'm thrilled to now be a USA Today (and Amazon) best seller!

I write three mystery series -- The Mainely Needlepoint series, the Shadows Antique Mystery series, and the Maine Murder series (under the name Cornelia Kidd.) I also write historical novels: Justice &amp; Mercy, a mystery for adults, and seven historical novels for ages 8 and up. Pizza To Die For is a contemporary mystery for young people.

I love sitting on the porch of my home built in 1774, overlooking the river and sipping wine, when I'm not reading or writing or keeping up with the rest of the world on CNN. On good days I walk along beautiful coastal roads near my home. I also love speaking about writing at schools, libraries, and other organizations.

In my LIVING AND WRITING ON THE COAST OF MAINE I write about what it's like to be an author living in Maine. Full of love and humor, it shows how my work and life intersect.

My favorite quotation is "Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved." William Jennings Bryan wrote that, but I think it defines my life.

For more information about me (and links to free prequels of my recent books!) check my website,, friend me on Facebook and Goodreads, like my Wait/Cornelia Kidd page, and read the blog ( I write with 9 other mystery writers from Maine.

And remember ... LIFE is the real mystery!
