Mysteries, Thrillers, and Crime
I'm a writer, reader, and knitter (not necessarily in that order.) After earning an M.A. in Classics from the University of Georgia and another from Brown University, I studied at the University of New Mexico with Sharon Oard Warner and Julie Shigekuni, at the Taos Writer’s Workshop with Pam Houston, and in Houston with Justin Cronin. My short story, “Margaret’s Magnolia,” appeared in the “Southern Arts Journal” and I won first place in a WOW! Women on Writing Flash Fiction Contest .Since then I have written two crime novels and a psychological thriller.
I've been told that for a "basically happy person" I write very dark prose.
ONCE TWO SISTERS
My current unpublished novel is a psychological thriller about two sisters.
Happy for the first time in her life, ZOE HALLETT is living in Texas under an assumed name with her husband and stepdaughter, when she sees a news story about a missing best-selling author--her estranged sister AVA HALLETT.
Zoe believes this “disappearance” is just another of Ava’s twisted fictions, but the authorities consider Zoe a prime suspect.
Can Zoe leave the emotional turmoil of the past behind, or will she let a troubled childhood kill more than her relationship with her sister?
