Mystery Writers Conference

June 22-24 I’ll be attending the 5th Annual Mystery Writers Conference in Key West.  This will be my third time at the intimate conference which includes panel discussions, speaker and lots of fun mixing with readers, well-known authors and other members of the publishing industry.  Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

Lovers Key

I hope you enjoy the second installment of The James Gang series. Josie and Steve have some issues to deal with while the try to decipher a cryptic message she’s received from an old friend. Someone wants that information badly. Badly enough to kill for it.

I’m already working on the third in the series. My hope is to have this one out by summer of 2018 but Lovers Key didn’t go as planned so I don’t want to make any promises just yet.

If you enjoy Lovers Key, don’t forget to leave a review with your retailer and/or on Goodreads. Thanks for sticking with me.
