My background

The Cranberry Bog Murder  is my first full length novel. It's a cozy mystery, featuring manufacturing efficiency expert Carrie Harding. Writing a novel has been a dream of mine since the third grade, and I’m excited to share it with you.   

My writing roots

I’m a cozy mystery book writer.My first novel is called The Cranberry Bog Murder. 

I worked in the software industry for a long time and over the years I wrote a lot of trade press articles and marketing collateral, but I yearned to write a novel. I started my career in manufacturing and supply chain operations. I was even featured in Fortune magazine at one time.

I also do freelance writing, content creation and marketing strategy consulting. But my real passion has always been writing fiction. 

My style

I'm a little bit goofy, which I hope you'll like. There's a lot of humor in my book--or at least, there's stuff I think is funny.

By the way, this is a picture of my dog, Penny. She's a wire-haired miniature dachshund.

There's also a wire-haired miniature dachshund named Penny in The Cranberry Bog Murder but it's not the same dog.
