An author of mystery novels and short story collections, I began writing following a career in sales and marketing that took me around the world. I now write at our home overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway, where my wife Claudia contributes her considerable editing expertise in shaping my books.
My current focus is adding fast-paced novels to the MOUNTAIN MYSTERY SERIES. Each book in the series stands on its own and features hometown heroes chasing clues to unsolved murders, only to fall into the path of killers. The murders, motives, and mysteries change from book to book, but each novel is set with the North Carolina mountains as a backdrop, contains characters you’ll long remember, and takes you down winding paths to conclusions you won’t see coming.
The latest release in this series is A TOWN DIVIDED. A stand-on-its-own sequel to this book, A TOWN IN FEAR, is planned for later this year. I hope you pick one of them up and join the thousands of other Mountain Mystery readers.
This site will be updated regularly, and I welcome your comments and suggestions. I hope you come back often. You can learn more about my writing by CLICKING HERE.
