My love of writing was born of my love of reading, so my first published work was obvious to me -- I love mysteries so much that I decided to write one (with more to come)!  Please scroll down to see my first cozy mystery, Blood Stained: A Madalyn Mitchell Mystery.


I'm working on other books (including the next Madalyn Mitchell mystery, Blood Meal), so check back here and at my author's page at Amazon:





Blood Stained
A Madalyn Mitchell Mystery

Maddy mused abstractly in the back of her mind, "What if one of the sweet, kind people she knew were someone else on the inside.  Someone capable of murder?"


Madalyn Mitchell in the contented wife of a Lutheran pastor in a quiet rural Iowa town.  Suddenly her world is turned upside down when the body of a murdered man is found in the city park.  Maddy follows clues to identify the murderer, motivated by the desire to return to her safe, calm existence.


But can life ever return to normal?
