About me

Occupation writer
Introduction I write mystery fiction both in novel format and as short stories. There are currently five titles in my "Rhodes to Murder" series: A Merry Little Murder, The Rune Stone Murders, To Kill A King, and The Scarecrow Murders are full length novels. The fifth book in the series, Criminal Mischief, consists of two back-to-back Caroline Rhodes novellas, Framed and Haunted Hearts. My short stories include "The Case of the Fugitive Farmer", "Code Blue" in Chicago Blues, "Murder Most Politic", "A Family Affair" and "The Casebook of Caroline Rhodes".
Interests I'm interested in all things to do with crime and mystery fiction. I'm an avid gardener and sports fan.
Favorite Movies Fried Green Tomatoes, Steel Magnolias, and any movie with Cary Grant
Favorite Music Fleetwood Mac; rock 'n roll in general
Favorite Books Bruce Catton's Civil War series (non-fiction); Fanny Flagg's many novels; Troy Soos' baseball mysteries; Terry Pratchett's Discworld series.

Which is more important to you and why: flexibility or expandability?

Flexibility. Life is uncertain. You have to be flexible.
