As with my fictional heroine Emily Stone, I have stared into the heart of psychopath. The first book in the award-winning Emily Stone Series is loosely based on some of my experiences with a violent sociopath that lived next door. It was not only an interesting, eye-opening experience, but a frightening one as well. It drove me to study and eventually earn my master’s degree in Criminology. I lived my life for more than two years with the threat that I would be murdered, ambushed, and brutally attacked by this person. I always believed that good things come out of bad experiences. My series was one of them. I want to thank everyone who has supported me and the series.
When Serial Killers Terrorize a California Beach Community, One Woman Stands in Their Way
Emily Stone doesn’t have a badge. But that hasn’t stopped her from tracking down some of the West’s most dangerous child-killers. Armed with a digital SLR camera, laptop computer and her trusty Beretta, Stone uses her innate gift for detective work to identify the perps — and then anonymously e-mail the evidence to the cops.
Now, the hunt for two brazen serial killers on the loose right in her own coastal California town threatens to expose Stone’s identity — unraveling her carefully constructed cover and jeopardizing her life’s work. But when she gets too close to the action, this razor-sharp hunter becomes the hunted. Cooperating with the handsome local police detective could be the only hope for stopping the rampage directed at unsuspecting young women — and saving herself. Can they piece together the clues in time?
Compulsion mixes CSI-style investigation with a ripped-from-the-headlines plot and a dose of romance for a keeps-you-guessing, fast-paced and savvy thriller, right up until the shocking finale.
“A strong female lead!”
“As the first in the series, “Compulsion” is a strong, promising start that certainly impressed and left me wanting more.”
“Right from the start this has you, I read it one day. I had to find out what happens next with the main character. Loved that it is a strong smart woman.”
