In Sunset in Old Savannah, everyone has something to hide. Investigative partners and best friends Michael Preston and Elizabeth Kirby are hired by a wealthy socialite to do surveillance on her wayward husband. When the husband turns up dead, the socialite becomes the police’s chief suspect. Mike and Beth must follow the clues through the historic town with more secrets than branches of moss-draped oaks. The duo uncovers a hodgepodge of potential murderers, including a scheming business partner, a resentful mistress, and a ne'er-do-well brother. As praise of their agency gets around, Mike and Beth must hire investigator Kaitlyn Webb to ease the workload. But will ghosts of Kate’s past threaten everyone's safety before a killer can be put behind bars?

Favorite place you’ve traveled to? 
When we were first married, we traveled up to the Georgian Bay in Canada, about 300 miles north of Toronto. We stayed at the Saga Lodge. Picture the lodge in the movie, Dirty Dancing, and that’s what it was like (minus all the dancing). All meals and activities were included for the week. Although the lodge was far from romantic, somehow that vacation turned out to be incredibly romantic. When my husband retires next year, we’re heading back there. I’ll bet the place has changed, no?

Favorite dessert? 
My favorite dessert is ice cream topped with fresh fruit topped with whipped cream. Oh, my, I could eat that every day!

What's one chore you hate doing? 
I hate scrubbing out the shower. Since we have well water, we end up with orange stains on the fiberglass enclosure even if we wipe down after every shower. It takes strong solvents and serious elbow-grease to get the “orange” off. Two years ago my husband took over the chore, and I am so grateful.

Deep Extraction

Purchase: Deep Extraction


A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.

If your book became a movie, who would you cast for your main characters?

Would you rather go to the future or go to the past?
Definitely the future. I want to experience new technology and explore the world.

What’s one thing you must have/do in the morning?
Other than my quiet time with the Lord, it’s the treadmill. I prop my laptop onto it. Tug into a pair of gloves to protect my wrists. And write away while exercising.
