Welcome!

I’m a writer and occasional blogger. I write a cozy mystery series set in the Beach Tea Shop, run by three sisters: Danielle, Chelsea, and Alexandra Powell. It’s set on Florida’s Treasure Coast, where I live, and where inspiration washes up with the tide daily.

Crime and passion aren’t found only in big cities. The confines of small towns work on the residents. When everyone knows everyone, how can you keep a secret?

I like to write about the interactions of sisters. Not surprisingly, I’m the oldest of three sisters – a true case of art imitating life!

Happy Homicides: Thirteen Cozy Holiday Mysteries is available now and Happy Homicides 2: Thirteen Cozy Mysteries / Crimes of the Heart went on sale February 14. Dying for Holiday Tea: A Beach Tea Shop Novella is in the first one, and Dying for Valentine’s Tea: A Beach Tea Shop Novella is in the second one. I hope you’ll read both, and discover new (or at least new to you) authors. Both e-books include a link for readers to receive a Bonus pdf with recipes and crafts from stories in each anthology.

Settle in with a cup of tea and a sweet or savory treat, and meet the Powell sisters.
