Do You Need A Break?


Whether you're sitting around a campfire or driving your daily commute, I bet you like stories as much as I do.


Our ancestors recognized the value of storytelling. Stories bring us together and help us form a connection to others. They help us solve problems, test our minds with puzzles, build empathy and create a feeling that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. 

Living in our modern-day world is stressful. Trying to balance work, kids, parents, pets, volunteer activities and fitting in time with friends can feel overwhelming. That's why getting your Fiction Fix is so important.


"What's a Fiction Fix?" 


A recent article in The New Yorker proves what many bookworms have known for years: reading fiction is just as effective as meditation on our health. Savvy book lovers know that taking the time--whether 10 minutes a day or an hour or more--to read helps us to maintain our equilibrium. Checking out with a good book or short story benefits us in many ways: it gives our minds a break from the daily grind, helps us problem solve, and encourages the use of our imagination, among other benefits. 

Here's What You'll Receive as a Patron:


  • Free print copies of thriller books
  • Behind-the-Book: a compilation of images, articles, macabre trivia and more that inspired the writing of the most recent novel
  • Birthday Blitz: a Swag Bag for you or a family member or friend on your special day
  • Fresh-from-the oven sneak peeks and deleted scenes
  • One-of-a-kind suspenseful short stories that feature you and/or family and friends
  • The entire library of every one of my print books, signed and delivered to your doorstep
  • Frequent and authentic gratitude in whatever creative ways I think up


My Promise to You

I'm a thriller author, but first and foremost I'm an avid reader. Nothing frustrates me as much as reading a fantastically creepy tale...only to have it nosedive into gore/torture/dismemberment...particularly if children or animals are involved. 

The tagline for my thrillers is, "Suspense the turns pages, not stomachs". I hold true to that. My books will scare you, creep you out and leave you on the edge-of-your seat in suspense. But you don't have to worry that they will suddenly veer into gratuitous blood/guts/gore or sexually explicit scenes. 

I chose to be an indie author because freedom is really important to me.  I don't think it should be up to big publishers to decide what books readers get to choose. Sometimes being self-published is challenging. More often though, it's rewarding. When my characters come alive for readers, when someone stops me to tell me that they enjoyed my latest novel or leaves a four or five-star review--that's pretty magical.

Whether you support my work with $2 per month or $150, I'm grateful for your patronage and support of the arts. 

Thank you,
