Profile Information

Northwest Indiana
About Me:
I'm the author of 4 published horror/mystery novels. Growing up I fell in love with reading very early and tended to read horror and mystery the most. I am also a big fan of films in the same genres.
My first novel, UNFINISHED BUSINESS, was published in 2003 and it's paranormal.
Second book is a dark romantic fantasy entitled, DESTINY'S CALL.
Next, is a horror novel called THE ACADEMY. It is currently being adapted into a screenplay. Keep your fingers crossed!
And my fourth entitled, INVISIBLE SHIELD is about a female homicide detective who has to solve her own murder. It was released April 30,2007 and so far reviews and response has been great.
Each of my books has a mystery in it, because I just can't get away from it!
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
My all time favorite book, aside from my own would be Catcher In The Rye. I was the dork in the high school English class who loved to be there and couldn't wait to start reading every assigned story.
I fell in love with the main character in Catcher, and have never stopped.
Favorite authors would include:
Stephen King
Kelley Armstrong
James Patterson
David Morrell
J.A. Konrath
Robert W. Walker
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Movies, wow that's a tough one. Too many to list that's for sure.
Anything Hitchcock.
Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte
And for TV, I'd have to say I grew up on a steady diet of Charlie Chan and Sherlock Holmes. I still pull them out and watch them at times.

Magna Cum Murder

I attended my first Magna conference this past weekend and had a great time! I made new acquaintances and managed not to get killed on I-65. Every time I go to a writer's con, I feel pumped and ready to write when I get back. I needed the shot in the arm as I've been struggling with a couple of manuscripts. One is a stand-alone suspense, the other horror.

Thanks to several writing vets at Magna, I learned a few tricks for spurring the old creative juices. So now I'm off and running… Continue

Web Woes

Well the second book in the Frost Sister Mystery Series is at the publisher. Now comes the nail biting time. So meantime back at the ranch,I'm busy working on the stand alone suspense that has been calling my name.

But if that isn't enough to keep me busy, my internet connection boots me off after about 5-10 minutes. Makes it tough to do research and answer emails. I have to keep rebooting the computer to get back on for another precious few minutes. That's part of the reason I've…

Book signing success!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Borders book signing on Saturday

the 14th. Wow! Invisible Shield sold out of the Borders'

stock and then I sold a few of the ones I brought along! It was

great to see the other Five Star authors, Julie Hyzy, Mike Black, Dave

Case and Tom Keevers, who signed their books too. We all had a

great time and went out to dinner afterwards. If you email me

privately I can give you the details on who ordered what. :))

Yesterday I… Continue

Hi, Scarlett,

Megabusy all the time, so apologies for the delay in thanking you so much for your Friend Invitation.
I'm Brit, living in Brittany, NW France, dumped six months back by my London agent, still trying to get a foothold back in the writing wracket - because I actually BELIEVE in the book I've written - even if the skeptics don't. Meanwhile, working on a project I believe will be even better.
I do appreciate your support.
Best, David

Looking forward to it! If you can't find me I'm probably in the bar--before 9pm I'll be sitting at a table, after 10pm you'll find me under it!

Hi Scarlett, I think we have probably met at LIM, and I'll be there again this year. I hope we have a chance to chat :o)

Hi Scarlett
Hope you're well. I'm pleased to say Reaper is now available in the States on at $16.99. In advanced search type Dunne for author and Reaper for title. Hope you take a look and spread the word. How're things on your side of the pond?
Best wishes

You know something?! YOU'RE RIGHT! I didn't think about it that way. I will perservere! And maybe get some novel wallpaper in the bargain! Thanks Scarlett. Great name. Great advice!

Well Hi there Scarlett! Thank you, love to be your friend.
I loved reading the kinds of things you write about. and you're actually published! I'm working on a series and some stories. Never actually sent anything in, but I'm going to shortly! Well, it was one way (but STUPID) to avoid rejection, right?! thanks again.
