Hello! I grew up in South Dakota, and spent most of my adult life in Arizona.  Nature is where a story starts for me: the seasons, the birds, and the wildflowers are carved indelibly in my psyche.

When not writing I read voraciously, garden sporadically, and drink lots of coffee. Occasionally I ponder what would drive an ordinary person to commit murder and mayhem. That’s where the mystery occurs!

I divide my time between Arizona and Michigan,  where I share my writing life with family and two wacko cats.
