So she accepts the fateful offer of a mysterious job interview, which turns out to be a ruse to steal gifts that she never even realized she had.

Tell us about your next releases.

I will publish Dreams Can Kill - A gothic mystery within the next few days as well as my murder mystery A Penny Saved A Murder Earned and sometime later this year the sequel to Love’s Labours Won, A Tiger Wrapped in A Player’s Hide.


Dreams Can Kill is the story of amnesiac Sharon Alexander. She’s is recovering from a bullet wound to the head and does not know who to trust. Everything is a blank including her assailants face. As she struggles to recover her assailant plays cat and mouse with her to get something she doesn’t recall. Sharron must fight and remember or she will find out Dreams can Kill.

A Penny Saved A Murder Earned is the story of Lily Kelly and her family. Lily Katha, Amelia, as well as Lily’s adopted daughter Rose Brooksfield feel like they are under a curse; but appears to be the work of a serial killer that people around them having been falling like dominos. Amelia’s parents and siblings, Amelia’s husband and son, and Lily’s first husband all have been targeted by a killer. Now as Amelia’s store clerk, a homeless man, Lily’s present husband the Mayor, and Lily’s mother-in law are targeted. Lily and her cousin Amelia are suspected by the investigating officer Emmett Rogers. Lily and her family must fight the impulse to blame the curse and get to the bottom of who is causing all their woes before the killer targets them.


A Tiger Wrapped In A Player’s Hide has not been finalized yet but I have done the basic outline for it. Sarah is still on a voyage of discovery learning about herself and her abilities. She’s not living the life she planned however since the Magik council is under siege from an unknown enemy and Demetrious is too busy fighting this person to visit her. Sarah must find her inner strength and abilities once more to help Demetrious and save herself and the world from this unknown assailant as they threaten her life as she knows it.
