Free Runner (published by Saguaro Books) won a Purple Dragaonfly Book Award. 

For the past few years, I've continued to write and research while spying and eavesdropping. My love for mysteries as a kid and my obsession for anything Sherlock led me to writing for a middle-grade audience.

I spent many years teaching fifth and sixth grades and taught art for over a decade. During this time, I acquired a love for art history. Da Vinci is da man! I can't wait for you to read my ghostly mystery featuring Da Vinci and a special object belonging to him. Hint: It's not the Mona Lisa. 

This middle-grade mystery won third place in the Authors.ME diversity contest last fall. 

My attraction to creepy houses and abandoned buildings runs deep. I live near both. I sense a theme. RUN. Maybe I should move?  

Nah. Because this inspiration led me to write another murder mystery. LINK LAKOWSKI AND THE DEAD HOUSE won third place in the 2017 Rate Your Story "Awesome Openers" contest! 

My latest murder mystery THE INK AND PAPER SOCIETY won runner-up in the 2018 RevPit Contest hosted by a group of professional editors. It was also a contender in this year's Query Kombat contest hosted by Michelle Hauck.

I am happy to announce I am now represented by Britt Siess at Martin Literary Management. We are currently working on edits for this middle-grade mystery. I will keep you updated on the status of forthcoming books!
