I stuck my toe into the deep, scary waters of novel writing twelve years ago. My first attempt was an abject failure! Since then I've had two computers crash on me, lost two unfinished novels and out of this chaos was reborn a mystery writer. Funny, because I had always seen myself as the dramatic, literary, family saga type of girl. Now, I still may be all those things, but at the moment, I'm focused on my series of cozy mysteries featuring amateur sleuth Peaches Donnelly.
I do most of my writing while sitting on the couch watching TV. In fact, that's what I'm doing right now. I'm inspired by the satiric works of people such as Ben Rehder and Carl Haaisen. But I also like the sly humor and clever works of authors such as Jo Nesbo (particularly Headhunters) and M. C. Beaton. The everyday madness of life generally keeps my head churning faster than my laptop.
So, by day I am a catering superstar alongside my husband, but by night I'm a mystery writing phenom hoping one day to gather dust on your bookshelf.
