Thank you so much for visiting my cyber home!

I’ve loved mystery novels since I was a young girl and first met Nancy Drew and Trixie Beldon. In my early teens I broadened my reading to include my mother’s romance novel collection. Now I write my own romantic mysteries. My first series stars Liz Talbot, a private investigator with a weakness for Kate Spade bags and shoes. Liz lives on the island of Stella Maris, which is situated in my mind, just north of Isle of Palms, near Charleston, South Carolina. Stella Maris is a small town—the folks are warm and friendly. I hope you’ll visit them often.

My debut novel, Lowcountry Boil, was released on September 18, 2012, from Henery Press. I’m thrilled and humbled that so many readers have connected with the characters and setting. Lowcountry Boil is a USA Today bestseller. It won the Agatha Award for Best First Novel, is a Macavity nominee, was awarded the 2012 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense, and was a finalist in the 2012 Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® contest. I am deeply grateful to the readers who have made all of this happen.

Lowcountry Bombshell, the second Liz Talbot Mystery was released September 3. I’ll be on the road a good bit meeting readers, and on several blogs as well. Y’all check out the schedule and come see me if you have the chance! I’ll have giveaways… 

And of course I’m working on Liz’s next adventure. Check back with me here on the web—I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, drop by to visit when you can on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and Pinterest—be sure to check out Liz’s World on Pinterest!

Thanks again for stopping by!
