Welcome to my lair!
I write noir thrillers that are chock-full of my fears, harnessing readers' imagination to fill in the scariest details. Experience unusual plots, innovative abductions, bizarre locations, chilling psychological tactics, lawless justice, and sexual depictions probably not possible in reality. (That last one isn't true, yet, but I'm not above anything for a nice hook.) You’ll meet Morana Mahker, a character appearing in every story and who is equally attractive, cunning and ruthless. The books can be read in any order, although Malice Aforethought will be most enjoyable after Prey for Us as they begin a new series. Grab a title. See if you can escape.
About my style: I’m a humble writer. I don't use fancy prose or cute phrasing. I write with a goal of simplicity and vividness. Anyone at a junior high reading level can blaze through my books in a few hours, needing no dictionary. Fair warning: I don’t censor characters' profanity (apologies to the easily-offended) though you’ll find that it’s sparse. And finally, I'll confess upfront that I suck at writing metaphors, so I tend to avoid them. This shortcoming in my craft annoys me like a pebble stuck in the shoe of my mind. See? Awful. I'm working on it.
I'm grateful that you stopped by—thank you! Be sure to try a sample. Might be tasty.
