With the Winter Olympics just one month away, I’ve been thinking more about this case. The events happened in Detroit, where I was […]

Are you thinking things may get better when pigs fly? No doubt you’ve seen it splashed on bumper stickers and greeting cards and just about everywhere. Comics like Woody Allen and Albert Brooks have spent decades entertaining us with variations on the wry joke that “Life Sucks – And Then You Die.” Yet, studies repeatedly […]

Here in Northern Michigan, we’re fortunate to have access to Interlochen Center for the Arts. Tonight, we’re attending a performance by Philobous. No, I’ve never seen […]
Four years ago, when I was plotting my new book, Fatal Distraction, the first job was finding the central crime that pits the psychopathic villain against Jess Kimball.

Fatal Distraction, like the rest of my books, is about strong women who never, never, never give up until they triumph over life using their inherent gifts – and sometimes, humor and an equalizer.
