Welcome to my website! Thank you for stopping by. Hope you take a few minutes to look around, because you might discover what's behind a mind that ranges from Prohibition gangsters to the captivating beaches of Nantucket.

Several varied story ideas are stewing on the back burners at the moment, so please visit regularly to see what the heck has manifested itself into novel format. Thanks to my publisher, Bold Strokes Books, and its amazing scope, even I can’t predict what tale will emerge.

Please keep an eye on the “Events” page here so you’ll know where to catch me at festivals, Pride gatherings, and other happenings. I’ll always have my books available for selling-and-signing, and will always be eager to chat.

Needless to say, I’m thrilled to be a part of BSB, as it conquers the LGBTQ world of fiction, and I trust you’ll satisfy your quest for “good reads” in all genres and formats whenever you visit BSB’s on-line bookstore at www.boldstrokesbooks.com. Because of their world-wide reach, BSB books also are available through any quality bookseller you choose.

So please feel welcome here, check out my novels to date, and gain a little insight as to what makes yours truly really tick. And drop me a note anytime. I'd love to hear from you!

Are you ready? She's baaaaack!

August is the big month!


For everyone who called for more of my Stick McLaughlin: The Prohibition Years, the moment has arrived: Crossing the Line will officially be released on August 14! Huzzah! You can order from boldstrokesbooks.com at any time, but pre-orders ship after the clock strikes midnight on July 31, and the ebook will download instantly.

The familiar gang is at it again, although this time with a newbie who just might win your heart. And Stick finds she can't remain the background boss she'd hoped to be...quite the contrary! Grab a copy and let me know what you think!

And now there are TWO!

July 2018 Las Vegas, NV---


Night Voice takes top honors at the annual conference: Best Mid-length Contemporary Romance! This very special prize now joins my Debut Author Award, and I'll cross my fingers for more to come.


Guess I always believed Night Voice was a really fun, entertaining read and I hoped for the best, but the competition was stiff--even including my own Nantucket Rose! So I was thrilled when the announcement came. It's amazing to win, and quite humbling just to be included among so many outstanding authors.
