Here you will find reader and reviewer comments about my writing. Enjoy!


Praise for TEXAS DEAD (release date 6-1-2021)

🔷 “I finished the book yesterday. If you were looking for your first beach read of the season, this book may be what you were looking for. ‘Texas Dead’ is the first book in the Mackenzie Michaels mystery series. This is a fast-paced exciting book that takes place in Corpus Christi, Texas. I really did enjoy this book. It has a solid mystery and a blooming romance. There is also comic snark between detectives Michaels and Jameson that breaks up the high drama of the story. I can’t wait for future books in the series.”
