News & Events

I am delighted to announce that I have been chosen to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic convention 2019.

In conjunction with the Malice Domestic Award, I will be presenting MYSTERY MOST EDIBLE, an anthology of culinary mysteries, for which I will be contributing a short story.

Also in time for the convention, Pegasus will publish LIGHTS! CAMERA! PUZZLES!, my 20th Puzzle Lady novel. The story of Cora's life is being made into a major motion picture! At least it will be, unless someone kills the cast and crew.
