My third book, KARMA’S A KILLER, is now available at most major booksellers!

Hello, and welcome to my website! Make yourself comfortable and look around. Although this website is ostensibly dedicated to my writing, I also plan to share information about the three loves that inspired it: yoga, German shepherds, and cozy mysteries. Yoga, dogs, and murder...what could be more fun?

For information about my mystery series, take a look at the BOOKS and NEWS pages, and sign up for my NEWSLETTER. For information on yoga, dog-related issues explored in my books, and a list of my favorite mystery writers, check out the LINKS page.

The BLOG discusses yoga philosopy, practices, and applications in daily life. Occasionally other authors and yoga instructors will drop by and share their insights. We publish an article every Monday morning. Please visit often and feel free to post comments or questions. You might just inspire a future article!

Thank you, and namaste!
