Last year's Valentines snail mail revival. So fun I can't resist doing it again.

Thanks for visiting!
What’s on my mind as February begins? Snail mail!

Remember looking forward to receiving letters and cards? Opening the mailbox to see your name, handwritten, on a pretty envelope? I love that, so as an ode to snail mail I organized my Second Annual Valentines Snail Mail Revival. Pretty soon cards will be flying across the US and Canada. So fun!

I just turned in the almost-final draft of Whispers in the Mist to my publisher. It’s like prying teeth to get me to let go of a manuscript. In fact, I write about here — 5 Sure Signs That I Can Let Go of My Manuscript (Finally!) — on the InkSpot blog, a crime fiction blog hosted by Midnight Ink authors. I recently took over as webmaster and spruced it up. Check it out!

In other news, I’ll be heading off to Left Coast Crime in Arizona later this month. I’ll be participating in a panel about violence in crime fiction, how much is too much?


Family secrets, betrayal, and vengeance from beyond the grave … Merrit Chase has just discovered her long-lost father

In Kilmoon, my debut novel, Californian Merrit Chase travels to Ireland to meet her father, a celebrated matchmaker, in hopes that she can mend her troubled past. Instead, her arrival triggers a rising tide of violence, and Merrit finds herself both suspect and victim, accomplice and pawn, in a manipulative game that began thirty years previously. When she discovers that the matchmaker’s treacherous past is at the heart of the chaos, she must decide how far she will go to save him from himself—and to get what she wants, a family.
