I love my agent and I love cats.  Does that mean I have a conflict of interest?

But you could if you wanted to. People (usually in their nineties) read my books, look in the local phone book for my last name, call my parents, and ask for my number. Invariably, they give it right up to them, and I get to listen for an hour about how I left out some of the best stories about a community or an event. I'd complain, but they've been the source of some wonderful stories.

I'd say see you there but I haven't figured out how to see how of your TV screen yet. LOL

I sent in my manuscript for FALSE FRONT, the fifth novel in the Lucinda Pierce series. I was exhilarated at finishing it. I thought life was good and then had to waste most of today battling rogue security software and while I was doing that, my cat peed on my favorite rug. Fortunately, things are looking up now.

You are not kidding about that. I have five kitties, and each one wants to be my favorite, for sure!

Story
Tagline
I am the author of twenty-one published books: twelve true crime books, eight mystery novels and one anthology
Introduction

I was born in Baltimore Maryland.  I spent my early years in the city and moved out to a suburban/rural area in Baltimore County.

I became aware that I had some writing talent when I was in Miss Gardner's 8th grade English class.  I wrote for my high school newspaper and interned at the now-defunct Baltimore News American.  Nonetheless, when I went to college, I majored in Chemistry.

I wrote advertising and promotions in radio,television and at an advertising agency.  I sold a few free lance articles and personal essays.  When I moved to Texas, I started working for non-profit organizations and doing more writing.  I started writing full-time in 2006.
