Welcome to my page!
As an author, I grow with every book I write. Starting off thinking I'd only do cozy mysteries, I quickly discovered my love of pushing the boundaries a wee bit...and now I've happily moved on to a more adult mystery genre. Some folks call this Paranormal Women's Fiction which caters to those in GenX. While I certainly believe the majority of my fans fall into this spectrum, I know for a fact I have men, young adults, grannies and everyone in between! My books will always have a mystery element...that is my passion. But from another mistress is calling - paranormal romance. Ad oh, do I have a few series coming that will leave you breathless!
Most of my work falls under snarky humor a tad irreverent and always a bit outré!
I know my writing can be out there at times, and may not be for everyone, but I think if you give my books a try you will pleasantly surprised!
Welcome to my world!
The final installment of Secret Sirens is coming this fall. SPOILER ALERT! Make sure to read it with a box of tissues!
NEW SERIES!!! A Hire the Vampire Mystery: Paranormal Women's Fiction
This ain't your momma's mystery!
MIDLIFE CRISIS HITS EVERYONE DIFFERENT.
Lexi Harlow refuses to acknowledge the big 5-0 is approaching. Ending a bad long-term relationship means she's desperate to make ends meet and decides to take on a life of crime - operating one tick on the wrong side of the law as a cat burglar. When her zany estranged aunt catches her heading into a neighbors home after a particularly abysmal job, she informs Lexi of the deep dark secret that is her heritage - she's a psychic vampire! I know...what's that? To make matters worse, she's being shadowed by a real life vampire--of the blood-sucking variety, and the last thing Lexi needs is a hot dude with sharp teeth in her life. What's a girl (even a middle aged one) to do?
Lily Sweet Mysteries in order
I always knew I wanted to write. As a kid, way before the technology age hit, I'd be stuck in the car with the folks as we drove from our home on Staten Island, NY, where I was born and raised, to our family property in the Catskill Mountains. To drive away boredom, I would sit, staring out the window, and create adventures in my mind.
As the years passed, I'd start writing a book, then stop, then start again only to let life get in the way, never certain I could do this. My mom, a great lover of books told me if no one else read them, SHE would.
Still I procrastinated. Then my mom passed away and I lost my cheering squad and reading buddy. Her passing was an epiphany—a kick in the pants moment. If I waited any longer, all those wonderful characters in my head would never have their stories told, and that made me sad. And I didn't want to let Mom down. So, I finally finished writing that first one.
Once I started, it became apparent nothing would ever stop me again.
I live near the North Georgia mountains on what I like to call a farm, with my husband and almost adult kids, a Cairn Terrier, two black cats, one evil tuxedo cat and fish.
