Vigilante Detective Emily Stone Wins Bronze

I received some very exciting news on Saturday that Dark Mind received a 2012 Bronze Award for Action at Readers Favorite.  I’m very honored to be a part of such an amazing group of authors.  Thank you to all of the judges at Readers Favorite!

When I wrote my first novel Compulsion four years ago, I never thought about writing a series at that time.  I had a story I wanted to tell and I never looked back.  One of the writing aspects I truly enjoy is writing action.  It means so much me to be given an award for something I love to do.

Thanks to all of you who have supported my Emily Stone Series!



An Emily Stone Thriller

“An intriguing alpha-female heroine… impressive action scenes and taut suspense.”  -Kirkus Reviews

“The writing is impeccable and the story is fresh and tight.” – Best Selling Author Gary Ponzo

Dark Mind is a strongly recommended pick for those who enjoy fast paced thrillers.” – The Midwest Book Review


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.
