I’d love to drop by your book club and answer your questions—about my novels, what inspired them, or how to write your own.

I’ve included Book Discussion Guides at the end of my Appalachian Mountain Mysteries. You can also download my free Book Discussion Group Guides below (click the orange button below).

Thanks to technology, we can easily meet through Zoom or other online programs.

After each event, I’ll send you my Book Club Thank-You Pack, which includes handmade signed bookmarks for everyone who attended plus the grand door prize to the luck winner of a box set of all four e-books in the series.

Just click on Contact Me above to arrange a free author event online for your book club, bookstore, or library group. I’d love to hear from you.


BOOK 1: The past is the past, right? Not for Della Kincaid. After decades as a crime reporter in D.C., Della thinks she's settling in a quiet, idyllic town in the N.C. mountains ... but a walk in the woods changes everything.

BOOK 2: Abit got what he'd always wanted ... then lost it. Trying to find it again could cost him everything. Will Abit Bradshaw find the courage to fight for the one thing that really matters to him? 

BOOK 3: A mother disappears ... Is she lost in the woods? Kidnapped? Murdered? Abit Bradshaw and Della Kincaid join the search, but it's a slippery slope that takes them from the mountains of N.C. to the streets of Washington, D.C. ... and into dark places in their own hearts.

BOOK 4: A mysterious death in the North Carolina mountains. Then a second. By the third, the FBI finally gets involved. Trouble is, they’re looking in all the wrong places. Abit Bradshaw has a theory, but of course the sheriff and FBI don’t take him seriously. 


As a writing coach, I can’t pass up an opportunity to help others yearning to write. I find many people in book clubs long to write their own, and I'm happy to offer a free Q&A workshop after our initial discussion for book clubs with 25+ attendees. What’s Stopping You? How to get started writing that book you’ve always dreamed of writing, is all about you and your needs, so bring your writing questions and I’ll answer as many as I can in this 30- to 45-minute interactive workshop. In addition, each participant will receive a free copy of my latest nonfiction book: How to Write Stories that Sell. Click on the book to learn more.
