I started writing mysteries to share unforgettable stories from my back-to-the-land experience in the North Carolina mountains. I've kept writing them because of my readers. They tell me they love the characters, especially Abit Bradshaw. He started in a supporting role, but I listened and gave him a starring role in the rest of the series. Then came Astrid Holt in Welcome the Little Children and more recently Wallis Harding in Murder Ballad Blues. Oh, really, there are too many good characters to list—you'll have to see for yourself.                  

My fifth book in the series, Deep in the Forest, is slated for autumn 2021 publication! Sign up below to hear more about advanced reader copies and exciting launch deals—plus you'll receive the free series prequel, Waiting for You.
