I have just signed my contract with Five Star Mysteries, the wonderful publisher who has accepted Pursuit in Provence. The book is a traditional mystery or a cozy if you will, set in the South of France. I am working on the second book in the series set in Ireland. Thanks to Alana White, another Five Star author, for putting in a good word for me with the acquisitions editor, whom I met at Killer Nashville. More about Pursuit in Provence as we get closer to the pub date.
I write a little bit of everything - fiction, nonfiction, and sometimes even poetry. For twenty years I served on the English faculty at Nashville State Community College, where I taught composition, literature, and creative writing. I was editor of the literary magazine, Tetrahedra, for eight years, and it was one of the joys of my career to see student writers get their first opportunity to be published. I earned my B.S. in Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and received my M.A. in English from Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. My home is Nashville, close to my two daughters and their families. I like to play tennis and play the piano. Tuesday nights, I meet with a writers group that I've been in for more years than I will say!
