What readers are saying about my books

About Me

I’m a novelist, wife and mommy to five-year-old twin boys. While earning my bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences at Old Dominion University and a certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I did a little bit of everything to pay the bills.

I’ve been a gas station attendant, waitress, dancing waitress, beer girl, shot girl, bartender, closing coordinator, executive assistant, medical assistant, EMT, content manager, webmaster, news publisher, editor, copywriter, weight loss coach and publishing consultant.

Through it all, though, what I really wanted to be was a novelist. It’s been a very long, and sometimes difficult road, but in 2011, I finally began living my dream with the release of my debut thriller, Never Smile at Strangers.

To date, Never Smile at Strangers has earned a place on the USA Today Bestseller’s list, the #1 spot (across all categories) on, the #1 spot (across all categories) in the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Store, the #1 spot in several mystery subcategories—and has appeared in the Kindle Store’s Top 100 list in several countries, including the UK, Canada, Australia and Brazil.
