News you can use! Amazon is offering the Kindle edition of my first book for only $1.99 right now! If you’ve been curious, this might be the time to check it out. 


My new mystery novel is The King’s Jar.  Acquiring a priceless artifact is a major coup for San Francisco’s Devor Museum, and the gala celebration honoring its donors is a high-stakes affair.

Dani O’Rourke, the Devor’s chief fundraiser, is a pro at dealing with wealthy patrons and museum-world politics. Murder, however, is way above her pay grade, and definitely beyond her comfort zone.

” … fresh, fast-paced, and great fun”

“…wickedly funny”

…a riotous read!

…smart and gutsy sleuth.“ A reviewer recently said “readers who like Janet Evanovich will flock to read Dani’s adventures.”

I hope you’ll explore this site, read an excerpt, contact me, see what the critics are saying, or click through to buy the book.

Are you in a book club? The King’s Jar deals with issues of culture, class, and power. I’ve been invited to share conversation with book clubs and I’d love to speak with yours, perhaps in tandem with another author who deals with social issues through crime fiction. Contact me here if your reading group might enjoy an in-depth discussion.
