It is a joy for me to write two mystery series.


Each of them is very dear to my heart. The WITCH CITY mysteries are set in Salem, where I was born on a spooky Halloween Eve. Well into that series, I was asked if I had any ideas for another series--this one set in Florida. Well, I did! Here on the Gulf Coast we have such a rich and fascinating history that I was inspired to write a story set in Haven,

my fictional town in Florida. My HAUNTED HAVEN series draws upon the many famous people who vacationed in my area. Some of them check into Haven Inn and seem to never leave.

I am very grateful to Kensington Publishers for the beautiful
covers they have created for both of my series.
