About Me

I write the Samantha Brennan and Annabelle Haggerty Magical Mystery series, featuring a fake psychic who works with a Celtic goddess/FBI agent, HIGH CRIMES ON THE MAGICAL PLANE, a Lefty Award-nominee, and MAGICAL ALIENATION.

I also write the humorous Tracy Eaton mystery series, featuring the daughter of eccentric Hollywood stars, REVENGE OF THE GYPSY QUEEN, which was nominated for the Agatha, Anthony and Macavity Awards for Best First Novel, DEM BONES' REVENGE, a Samantha Award-winner, and REVENGE FOR OLD TIMES' SAKE, a Lefty Award-nominee.

I've also published two thrillers, NEVER SAY DIE and DEVIL'S GAMBIT - DEVIL'S DUE, as well as publishing over sixty short stories. I'm a two-time Derringer Award-winner and a two-time Pushcart Prize-nominee for my short fiction.

I teach writing online for the prestigious Writers' Program of the UCLA Extension School, and I often work as a freelance editor or do writing coaching with writing clients. With my husband, I own The Well Red Coyote bookstore in Sedona, AZ.
