Profile Information

Dudley, North Carolina, USA
About Me:
I taught English for thirteen years, became a high school principal, and eventually started to write, something I'd always wanted to do. I started out to write a short story and it transformed into a mystery novel. I'm a life-long resident of North Carolina, having had the pleasure of living near the beach and in the Blue Ridge Mountains. My novels are set in the state I know and love. The Logan Hunter series includes Genesis Beach, Just North of Luck, Hell Swamp, and Sin Creek. I'm now working on the fifth one. I authored a unique cookbook, Killer Recipes, which includes recipes from mystery writers all over the country. My first women's fiction, Slightly Cracked, will debut in October.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
Favorites? There are so many! Patterson's Cross series is awesome. I also like Deaver, Gerritsen, Sandford, Scottoline, Maron, Lane, Mary Alice Monroe. Cathy Holton is adorable. A new discovery is DH Dublin's series, starring Madison Cross. I've read all three and anxiously await the next one. He gets right down into the tissues.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Law and Order: SVU

Are you doing blogtalk?

I had my first live radio interview this week where people from all over the country could call in or send an email or blog. It was great! I was on the air for an hour but it didn't seem like it. The questions just kept coming and the host and I got lots of snicker time about the testicle festival in my second book. A few northerners commented on my cute Southern accent. I hope to do more of these kinds of shows. I was also able to post the link on my website after the fact, but I have to… Continue

My character is alive!

Imagine my surprise the other day when I had an email from Pepper Ellis, a ficitional character in Genesis Beach. Well, it turns out that there really is a Pepper Ellis. Not sure if she's a chef, or brunette, etc., but I thought it was really cool. I let her know that Pepper is also in Just North of Luck, attending a Testicle Festival.

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi Susan, Nice to see a friendly face here. I haven't visited for a long time, but am taking the afternoon off to play on the computer. Cheers.

L.J.! Great to hear from you. Listen, I just posted a note to the main forum here and I'd like your opinion if you use any software during your writing processes. I'm about to plunge in to a rather challenging mystery and think maybe a little more organization of thought my be beneficial. Hope you're doing well on every level as well. Thanks for stopping by.

I'll be right over (if only) and we can sit on a porch with a pitcher of lemonade and eat pecan pie!
sometimes I get homesick for all things American!
one of these days!

Oh the Blue Ridge Mountains! I read something like that and I want to take the first plane back!
I'm not from there--a new yorker originally, but I loved the South and have never forgotten the sight of those gorgeous mountains!
just had to say hi and tell you!
