Welcome! Please take time to check out my fiction novels, non-fiction books, children’s books, and travel books. Check out my blogs and the magazines I am affiliated with as well.


Champagne Lies and Vineyard Secrets, my two recent mystery novels combine my love of travel with writing. Both set in San Francisco and in Italy, you can follow along as the characters in each find themselves in trouble and have no idea why. Along the way, people get killed, secrets get uncovered, things disappear, and surprises happen around every corner.


My children’s books, the Max and Myron series, teach children to read while teaching them a positive lesson at the same time. Max, a little boy, comes home from school each day to tell his cat, Myron, what he learned. Myron, in turn, tells Max what happened at home. Children learn how to be good citizens by reading what Max and Myron do in a variety of situations. Good manners and fun go hand in hand with these two characters. High frequency words, sentence structure exercises, and a vocabulary of new words assist parents and educators alike when they work with children and read these books.
