Following a career in marketing that took me around the world, I began writing mystery/crime novels in 2009. I write at my home overlooking the Blue Ridge Parkway, where my wife Claudia contributes her considerable editing expertise in shaping my books. In our free time, we enjoy traveling and hiking nearby mountain trails with our rescue dog, Milo.
My recent focus is adding fast-paced novels to the Mountain Mystery Series. I refer to these stories as “cozy mysteries with a bite!” 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 the 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 mystery series is A TOWN IN FEAR. This book is a stand-on-its-own sequel to A TOWN DIVIDED. Attorney Luke Maxwell returns to once again defend the wrongly accused. I hope you pick one of them up and join the thousands of other Mountain Mystery readers.
