About Me

My photo
I received teaching and engineering degrees and have traveled extensively, living ten years outside the US. I moved from the big city of Houston to a small sleepy community in North Carolina, which has been a tremendous change and a great inspiration for my novels, full of the local color. My time has been filled with writing and helping to physically construct three additions to our former farmhouse. I have a great view of the mountains ten miles away across the broad valley and the sunsets are breathtaking. I am an avid reader of all kinds of mystery and contemporary fiction.

Spring and Flowers

My mystery book Murder by the Clock is being edited at the moment, so I have free time to enjoy the outdoors. Spring is a wonderful time of the year. I'm not much with flower names, but the above are running rampant in my yard. It just seems a shame to mow them down. The lady who owned the property before planted five forsythia bushes like the ones below. The only problem is they are a bear to keep pruned. They seem to branch out everywhere.
