I write several genres, but mostly mysteries: cozy and psychological. I also wrote a medical mystery, Memory Makers, that came out in the summer. I have a cozy mystery series, the Cobble Cove mysteries that feature a librarian and a library cat in the small, fictional town of Cobble Cove in upstate New York. I've just completed the 5th book in that series, No Gravestone Unturned, a Halloween mystery that was published in October and is currently on blog tour with Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours. The ebook is free from Amazon until the end of the day on November 1. You can get it here: mybook.to/CobbleCove5

After Sarah returns to the inn, she faces long-buried memories, text messages and strange clues. Something is not right in Sea Scope. Reunited with people from her past, she tries to figure out what's going on in her childhood home.
When past and present collide, Sarah must face truths about her family, and what happened that summer day by the lighthouse. But will she survive to tell the tale?
Twenty-five years ago, Lauren Phelps and her sister Patty were kidnapped from their backyard on Long Island. Lauren escaped her captor, but Patty was killed.
Ever since, Lauren has suffered from nightmares of the “Shadow Man.” Trying to recall his face and avenge her sister’s murder, Lauren, now a kidnapping investigator, enrolls in a clinical trial for a new memory drug.
At the offices of Memory Makers in California, she receives the injections of the Memory Makers' serum, and begins to experience flashbacks of repressed memories. Along with the flashbacks, she receives threats from an anonymous source that point back to her childhood trauma.
Soon, Lauren becomes involved with a fellow trial participant who seeks to recall his own traumatic past. But can Lauren discover the identity of the “Shadow Man” before history repeats itself?
