May You Have a Merry Christmas!


It’s been an amazing year! Yes, there’s been some ups and downs, but there are always things that we can be thankful for. I cannot believe that it’s that holiday time once again. For me, it’s a time of reflection, thankfulness, and joy. I’m particularly thankful for those of you who have supported me and my books–and for that I’m truly grateful.

A couple of highlights this year has been three book awards I received for my two series: Emily Stone Thrillers & Chip Palmer Forensic Mysteries. Here’s my trusty German shepherd Odin_Awardcompanion, Odin, wearing one of my book medals.

The other big announcement for 2018 is that I signed with Bookouture for a three book deal! I still have to pinch myself that it’s real. 20180915_172015The first book will be out May 31, 2019. I’ve been sworn to secrecy until the cover reveal, which will be in a couple of months. But, what I can tell you, is that it is a forensic crime series with a police detective who is a former military K9 veteran. I will be updating about the first book in the weeks/months to come.

There will be many new things coming up in 2019. A new book series with some fun events, more from Emily Stone, forensics, series of first-hand accounts of police ride alongs, and video blogs! 2019 here I come!


May you be blessed with a joyous Christmas, and peace and happiness in the coming New Year 2019.
