After years of research and hard work I completed my first novel, Twisted Vines: A Shakespeare in the Vineyard Mystery, last year, and much to my delight was recently offered a contract by small-press publisher Five Star.
My daughter was kind enough to create a mock book cover for me while I wait for the final cover selection. August of next year is a long ways off from now, but I’m really enjoying the publishing process and keeping busy with my second novel in the series.
My mystery series takes place in beautiful Livermore, California, where my family and I have been residing since 1980. Famous for its numerous wineries, including the longest operating family-owned winery in the United States, Livermore is framed by golden hills and has a vibrant community of wine and art lovers alike. With all kinds of festivals throughout the year, fabulous plays and visiting dance troupes at local theaters, over 40 wineries, and an active farmer’s market, Livermore is a Bay Area gem.
And the perfect location for a murder in the vineyard. While waiting for my first book to be published, I’m hard at work on the other two books in the series. Please check back for release dates and speaking engagements. You can also visit my blog page, and stop by The Lady Killers’ website and read my recent post, Drive by Ambition. Thank you!
Thank you and hope to see you again. Cheers!
