I always wanted to be a writer, and it looks like I got my wish. After a rather late start, now I write three mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime: the Orchard Mysteries, the Museum Mysteries, and most recently, the County Cork Mysteries, set in Ireland. The first book in the newest series, Buried in a Bog, was a New York Times Mass Market Bestseller, and so was the most recent book in the Orchard Mystery series, Golden Malicious.
I also write short stories, several of which have appeared in Level Best Publishing's annual anthology of stories from New England writers. One of them, "Kept in the Dark," was nominated for both an Agatha Award and an Anthony Award.
My first standalone ebook, the romantic suspense Once She Knew, debuted in September 2012 as a Nook First Look selection, and went on to be one of Barnes & Noble's 100 bestselling books of 2012. My second standalone ebook, Relatively Dead, a paranormal romance, was released by Beyond the Page Publishing in May 2013, and the same publisher released Reunion with Death in November 2013.
If that's not enough, I write for three different blogs:
