Welcome! Thanks for visiting my website, and I hope you enjoy the books.
-Narrator (Psychological Thriller)
Sunrise-Side Private Investigator Mystery Series
-The Blue Hour Sanction
The Great Lakes Saga
I have always thought that the Great Lakes region, beautiful and rich with history, would provide the perfect place to set stories. My approach for the 5-book saga is to tell one story set on or around each Great Lake. Don’t let the different genres dissuade you. The books are all summer reads full of drama, tension, betrayal, murder, lust, romance, mystery, and suspense.
Note: Hampstead, Michigan and Shelter Harbor, Michigan are fictional places—as are some of the islands that I put in my novels to serve the stories—but, if you are from Michigan, they will have a familiar feel.
-The Wreck (Lake Huron-Sea Adventure)
-The Sail (Lake Superior-Sea Adventure)
-The Cabin (Lake Ontario-Espionage Thriller)
-The Hike (Lake Erie-Crime Thriller)
-The Bay (Lake Michigan-Sea Adventure-TBD)
