My favorite pastime is reading, especially mysteries. When I’m not curled up with a book, I write. So far, I’ve had four novels published: two mysteries in the Jane Serrano Mystery series, one contemporary romance, and one mystery for middle grade/young adult readers. My current project is a novel of romantic suspense. I also write personal essays, short stories, and poetry. When absolutely forced to step away from books and computers, I enjoy travel, sailing, and hikes in the sagebrush. Just don’t make me do crafts or swim in cold water. I live in idyllic Bend, Oregon.
