Marching into Spring with a New Book Contract

I’m proud to announce that I’ve signed a contract with Creativia Publishing for my psychological thriller, Sea Scope.

When infertility threatens her marriage and her husband refuses to seek medical help, children’s book illustrator Sarah needs an escape. Sea Scope, the family-owned inn in South Carolina where she spent her childhood, seems just the place. It’s been twenty years since she’s set foot there, twenty years since she and her brother Glen discovered the body of a guest. Although ruled a suicide, Sarah always had her suspicions. Now she faces long-buried memories and ominous text messages from someone claiming to be her dead brother.

A devout skeptic and seeker of facts, Sarah hunts the prankster, uncovering inconvenient truths and family secrets along the way, until that long ago “suicide” looks more like murder. And if Sarah keeps digging, the next body found by the lighthouse may just be her own.

What’s unique about this book are the true facts about lighthouses and lighthouse keeping that are scattered throughout. Of course, what will come as no surprise to readers of my other books, this one also features a cat.
