Profile Information

About Me:
I never wanted to be anything except a novelist, so of course I've been everything else-—proofreader, typesetter, editor, nonfiction writer, photographer, secretary, data entry clerk, legal assistant, Starfleet lieutenant commander, stable manager, dancer—-and no, not that kind of dancer. My long-suffering husband is just excited I'm actually using those two degrees, one from the University of Houston Downtown and the MA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. My novels are mysterious, adventurous, and romantically suspenseful, but all sorts of other stuff can leap out of that keyboard without warning.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer, Editor, Critic
Books And Authors I Like:
Ellery Queen, Dorothy Sayers, Alistair MacLean, Jack Higgins, G.K. Chesterton, John Douglas, and Jane Austen
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
don't really watch visual media

The Dingo Baby case, Part One

Six Sentence Sunday 05/01/11

My uniform pocket, meanwhile, felt rather heavy. And increasingly hot.

That midnight, while Greentree and those who couldn’t escape continued the search, I rappelled down the outside wall of his apartment building, let myself into his bedroom, and planted the ruddy things in the trouser pocket of the uniform he’d worn the previous day. It seemed a decent enough plan at the time, and my skills weren’t so rusty that I left any fingerprints that would incriminate me. And I must admit to…

When the victim’s fingerprints count the most

Most commonly, it’s the perpetrator’s fingerprints that land him or her in jail. But in the kidnapping of Charles Urschel, it was the victim’s fingerprints that lead to the capture of a notorious Prohibition era gangster.


The crime

Charles F. Urschel, oil millionaire and philanthropist, and his wife Berenice were entertaining their friends, the Jarretts, at the Urschels’ Oklahoma City home with a game of bridge on July 22, 1933, when two bandits armed…

Formatting your ms for Kindle upload

Yes, you get some formatting errors when you upload your usual word processing doc to Kindle Direct Publishing. And yes, there’s a free and relatively easy way around this problem. I’m preparing a short how-to manual, teaching self-pubbing authors how to format their work for a seamless Amazon.com upload without formatting errors, in four steps. But honestly, the most important part of the process is detailed in the instructions listed on my… Continue
