I started writing in seventh grade at St. Mary’s Cathedral School under the tutelage of Sister Delores Marie who told me I had talent. I believed her. I started traveling at age 21. Now I combine traveling and writing. One of my novels, “Murder in a Teacup,” placed second in the California Writers Club Jack London novel contest. Solstice Publishing has released three of my novels, “Murder Down Under,” set in Australia; “Murder Casts a Spell.” set in South Africa; and “Murder on the Seine,” set in Paris and Basque Country. I’m currently working on my sixth Lysi Weston mystery novel set in San Francisco. I’m a member of Mystery Writers of America and sit on the central board of the California Writers Club. I love reading mysteries so of course I love writing them. Visit my web site.
