When I was a kid, I was obsessed with reading in general and mysteries in particular.  I read every Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys book I could get my hands on.  Now that I'm old an adult, that passion for reading has turned into a passion for writing. 

For me, Sugarcomb Lake is the perfect escape.  I love writing about Irene Meddler's bizarre conspiracy theories, Barbara Norman's complete lack of self-awareness and Justin Brown's misguided pranks.  I like my protagonists to be flawed, yet relatable.  And I like my cats to be, well, cats.

Crafting mysteries is a lot of fun for me.  Weaving clues and red herrings into my stories is something I take particular delight in.  I also like to balance all the murder investigation stuff out with a touch of romance.

When I'm not busy writing, I like to curl up with a good book, bake cupcakes, watch scary movies, indulge my online shopping addiction and go for long walks.  I would write more here, but I need to go attempt to pet a cat.  For research.
