"I'm an award-winning journalist, editor, and novelist based in Eugene, Oregon. I write the highly praised Detective Jackson series: The Sex Club, Secrets to Die For, Thrilled to Death, and Passions of the Dead. I also have two standalone thrillers, The Baby Thief and The Suicide Effect. All my books are available in print and on Kindle and other e-readers for $2.99. When not plotting murders, I enjoy performing stand-up comedy, cycling, gardening, reading crime stories, social networking, attending writers/readers conferences, hanging out with my family, and editing fiction manuscripts."
