I love writing page-turners—both fiction and non-fiction. And I love helping others to do the same, living into their dreams of writing books. I believe my success comes down to a respect for my readers and clients. I know I'm easily bored, so I work hard to engage and inspire both audiences.
I got my start as a writer in the most unlikely place—a town of 200 people in the mountains of North Carolina. Living there changed my life in so many positive ways. Decades later, I realized that everything I value today, I was introduced to there. My Appalachian Mountain Mysteries--"A Life for a Life," "The Roads to Damascus," "Welcome the Little Children," “Murder Ballad Blues” and “Deep in the Forest”--pay homage to the people of Appalachia who taught me so much. In late 2021, “Deep in the Forest” joins this series as the fifth book featuring Abit Bradshaw and Della Kincaid.
Over the years, I've written more than 1,200
articles for major magazines, hundreds of newsletters and 20 books.
