A native of Northern California and former ER nurse, I'm now a "Texan in training"--awed by initiation processes that include chili cook-offs, a first brush with fireflies . . . and an armadillo in my pool. My first funny & romantic cruise mystery, DRESSED to KEEL, was released by Midnight Ink in May 2006. Sequels AYE DO or DIE and MAI TAI to MURDER set sail this year. Grueling cruise "research" forces me to dress in sequins, sip Mojitos and "Chicken Dance" in shipboard discos around the globe. Rugged work, but I am dedicated.
Hey, Caroline (CT)--thanks for "friending" me. And glad to hear you like some belly laughs amongst the murders. I'm very guilty of that, to the point that some have likened my work to Evanovich. Okay by me! ;-)
Thank you, Laura--it was actually for a nurse recruiting campaign ( People and Passion) that I did for my hospital system, back when I was pre-pubbed. But I chose "props" for the book I was writing at the time . . . which turned out to be my debut cruise mystery, Dressed to Keel!
Thank YOU for "coming onboard"!
Blessings to you as well--Candy
