Welcome to my website. I'm a writer, lover of animals, reader, teacher, and mischief maker. Perhaps it's the last category that I most want to excel at! On the site you'll find stories about readers/friends and their animals, Jitty advice, contests, book news, newsletters, and photos of the things that matter in my life.
I love to hear from my readers, so feel free to drop a line to my e-mail address, and I will write you back.
If you spawn mischief, I'll join you in it!
My calendar is also on the website, and while my travels are mostly confined to the South, you never know when I might pop up somewhere. So check the calendar to see if I'm going to be in your neck of the woods. I wish I had time to travel, but I also have a small animal rescue (Good Fortune Farm Rescue) and that keeps me close to home.
Left Coast Crime is a convention of fans and authors who gather during
the first quarter of the calendar year in Western North America (as
defined by the Mountain Time Zone and all time zones westward to Hawaii)
to celebrate crime fiction.
Anyone who loves mysteries. Attendees will include hundreds of fans of
crime fiction, along with published authors, aspiring writers,
librarians, large and small publishers, editors, agents, and
Our days are built around panel discussions and other programming on a
wide variety of topics designed to allow lots of interaction among
readers and writers. There are typically four or five programs to choose
from at any given moment. They can be humorous or serious, educational
or entertaining, and most often are a little bit of everything.
In addition, there are many author signing sessions, a book room, and
special events such as award ceremonies, movie nights, and parties. And
always, there are a lot of people just hanging out and enjoying each
Register to attend! And volunteer:
Left Coast Crime is organized and put on by a group of dedicated
volunteers—and you can be one of them. Get involved onsite by monitoring
panels or book signings, stuffing registration packets and book bags,
handing out badges, or staffing the hospitality suite. Email our
