July started out with some real fireworks!  I found on July 1st, that Dark Mind, my latest Emily Stone Thriller, has received two award nominations.  I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me.  I’m actually doing a happy dance!


Dark Mind is a finalist of five books for Fiction/Action at Readers Favorite.  The medal winners will be announced on September 1, 2012.



Dark Mind is a semi-finalist in Mystery/Thriller for Best Indie Books 2012.  The winner and four finalists will be announced on September 1, 2012.




I’m very humbled and honored to be included with such talented authors.  Congratulations to everyone and good luck!



A Serial Killer Plagues an Island Paradise

Vigilante detective Emily Stone continues her covert pursuits to find serial killers and child abductors, all under the radar while shadowing police investigations.

Emily searches for an abducted nine-year-old girl taken by ruthless and enterprising slave brokers.  Following the clues from California to the garden island of Kauai, she begins to piece together the evidence and ventures deep into the jungle.

It doesn’t take long before Emily is thrown into the middle of murder, mayhem, and conspiracy.  Locals aren’t talking as a serial killer now stalks the island, taking women in a brutal frenzy of ancient superstitions and folklore.  Local cops are unprepared for what lies ahead. In a race against the clock, Emily and her team must identify the killer before time runs out.
