The Pointe System is coming soon!
Projected Release Date: August 2021
I am making progress on my next book, The Pointe System. I hope to have it published this summer. This murder mystery takes place in the exclusive Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, a community that was restricted until the 1960’s. Meet Albert and Rachel Green who bypassed the restrictions and bought a house on Somerset Avenue in 1952 and the established old money industrialist Chandler family. The two families become closely linked with tragic consequences that unexpectedly occur after a decades long interdependent relationship.
I finally finished my next book: Murder at Beulah Crest
Released: September 30, 2020
Welcome to Beulah Crest, a small community overlooking beautiful Crystal Lake. People feel safe here. Nobody locks their doors. Neighbors meet at the old Mouse House in the center of the park for coffee and potluck dinners. The residents of Beulah Crest enjoy the natural beauty of Benzie County and feel lucky to have neighbors who are trusted friends.
Trust soon turns to fear and suspicion when one of the residents of Beulah Crest is found brutally murdered on the deck of a neighbor’s home. Anger and speculation spread throughout the Crest and the county when residents begin posting a mix of fact, fiction, and gossip related to the murder on the Internet.
Meanwhile, the sheriff hinders the investigation of his own officers as he tries to pin the murder on migrant farm workers in an effort to guarantee his re-election.
Speaking on the Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary 2
I gave a number of talks about my books, writing, and self publishing on board these great ships. Thank you passengers for the feedback on my books and for some great ideas.

The Carinthia Secret Cover Design Finished

I finished writing my next book - The Carinthia Secret.
My next book, The Carinthia Secret is now in the hands of my editor, Jasmine Cummings, who will catch all of my errors and make the book readable. I hope to have this new thriller published in late June. The story takes place on the RMS Carinthia during her first world cruise in 1925-26. Will the charming but evil Tommy Thornton be caught before he kills again?
Readings while on the Queen Victoria
While on a crossing from Ft Lauderdale to Southampton, I conducted several readings from Table 29 and also from The Carinthia Secret. In another presentation, I shared what I learned about life on board The Carinthia in the 1920's. To learn more about the Carinthia world cruise and the ship, click on the photo.
