Welcome to my website where I highlight my romances, mysteries, and books for children and adults. Among my titles are Prepped to Kill, Gadfly, Jigsaw, Lost in Spindle City, and Poof! (Ricky Steele Mysteries), A Friend of Silence, In the Name of Silence, and The Silence of Memory (Roger and Bess Mysteries), Widow’s Island, Hestor’s Way, and Song of the Spirit. Song of the Spirit was a finalist at The 2014 International Digital Awards for Historical Fiction for Young Adults. I am also the author of the popular Morgan’s Run and Morgan’s Fire romance series. Morgan’s Run books are set in the U.S. southwest. Emma’s Dream is the gateway book and I am currently completing number 12, Tom’s Ride, which is due to be published on February 22, 2022. The spin-off series, Morgan’s Fire, set in New England, debuted in June 2019 with book number 1-- Lucy’s Hearth. Morgan’s Fire, number 7, A Horseshoe Crab Cove Christmas releases on December 14, 2021.

I have recently retired from my “day job” as a professor at a small New England liberal arts college. My scholarly work centered, and still centers, around social contexts within which children learn and I am the author of three works of nonfiction. My research for the past two decades has focused on the impact of mindfulness on readers and writers, work that has brought me tremendous joy and satisfaction. 

I live on a beautiful river on the Atlantic Flyway, so am blessed with an everchanging variety of wildlife passing by my windows. When not writing, my passions revolve around family, yoga, swimming, walking, canoeing, and teaching mindfulness to people of all ages. I love to hear from readers and always respond. I always appreciate followers on AmazonBookBub, and Goodreads!
