Welcome! I’m an award winning writer who started writing science fiction and fantasy, and have had my work appear in Realms of Fantasy, Bruce Coville’s Shapeshifters, and Writers of the Future, Vol. X. I’ve also had my non-fiction work appear in The Arizona Republic, American Forests, and High Country News.
Now, I’m mostly known for the Doodlebugged Mysteries, a cozy mystery series featuring an obedience-impaired labradoodle with a nose for trouble.
Recently, I’ve gone back to my fantasy roots with TreeTalker. Here are a few reviews:
“Fast-paced and engaging, this tale weaves magic, mystery, and action together to deliver an entertaining story. . . a gripping contemporary fantasy with relatable characters.” —The Booklife Prize
“The author is able to convincingly pull together many disparate elements: an alternate universe, Hopi tradition, Celtic myth and ecological peril, and then drop them all into a sleepy Utah town.
The final magical ingredient is a pack of brave and loyal dogs, who join with the kids and their pooka-in-poodle form companion to save the day.” —ThorLuther, Amazon
“This is a rich tapestry of magic interwoven in the ordinary world, with a curious ending. HIGHLY recommended.” —M. Alm, Amazon
Also, ILL-SERVED, the seventh Doodlebugged mystery is out!
Service to die from . . .
Big changes come into Molly’s and Doodle’s lives when the boss gets married. Doodle loves their new home, except for the annoying kitten that seems to have come with it. But then a neighbor threatens the boss, and escalating acts of vandalism make it clear that someone is trying to force them out. Worse, Molly’s new friend collapses on the sidewalk after his service dog runs away. The dog is supposed to be a diabetic alert dog, but he doesn’t act like any service dog Doodle has ever known. With the boss away on his honeymoon, it’s up to Molly and Doodle to sniff out the truth and set things right.
A family friendly mystery perfect for dog lovers of all ages.
