Friday the 13th

Misfortune falls, and black cats sing.
Evil lurks, and terror screams

I lost my baby girl this morning, due to fatal kidney disease. Bella, the bottle baby I rescued when she was just three days old, who always walked softly but had a huge heart, who gave kisses to everyone she loved, and was the best soccer ball fetcher you’ll ever see… she left multiple footprints on my own heart these past fifteen years, and one more this morning, as she left me. I’ll miss her forever.

“Essex Valley: A Quiet, Nice Little Town”

My fourth book, published in 2016, is a crime mystery, and takes place in northern California’s Redwood Empire. After Sheriff’s Captain Evan Spicer and his teenage daughter, Stevie, suffer a tragic personal loss, he sells their family home in Seattle, and moves them to Essex Valley, in search of a new life for them both.

But unusual people, peculiar situations and strange occurrences soon leave him wondering whether he’s made a huge mistake. Has this move put them in danger? Does something sinister lurk in the deep redwood hollow they call Essex Valley?

Life always has surprises, and everyone has secrets… except some could be deadly.

Available from Amazon in both Kindle and paperback versions.
