Hello there.  I’m a recovering TV writer who spent 8 years working in Hollywood and now writes the Detective by Day mysteries with Midnight Ink. The first, HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE, hits stores on August 8, 2017. It was a Library Journal Debut of the Month and was called a winning first novel and series launch in Publishers Weekly’s starred review.

My time in LA included a stint writing for the CBS drama Cold Case. People were always surprised to learn what I did for a living. Probably because I seemed way too happy to be brainstorming ways to murder people every week. But to me, Hollywood is a place where it’s better to laugh than to cry. And so I wanted to write a book that combined my love of mystery with the absurdity that can be show business.

Just imagine if someone like Nicole Richie becomes so broke she resorts to crime solving to get the reward money to help save her parents’ home and you have the premise for my book.

You can find out more about my series (and me) by visiting the links in the above menu.

I also blog with a group of super-talented, super-funny mystery writers so please visit us every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at Chicks on the Case.
