About the Author

I love stories.
One of my earliest memories is of sitting next to my mother as she read to me from Grimms Fairy Tales. I loved those stories so much, after a while, I asked her to teach me how to read so I could read them myself.
I wrote my first story in kindergarten. Well, maybe not wrote it, since it was a series of pictures, but when I got home from school, my mother wrote the words that told the story under each of the pictures. I thought I was in heaven when I reached sixth grade and every Friday we had to hand in a story we’d written during the week.
I continued to write through high school, but my priorities changed once I got to college. Years later, I was divorced, my son had gone off to college, and I was happy in my job as a computer programmer.
Until 9/11.
After the initial shock, I was thinking about how all those people had gone off to work or gotten on a plane to go on vacation or visit family or close a deal. They never imagined it would be their last day on earth. What might they regret if they had?
More importantly, what would I regret not doing if my life came to an end tomorrow? One of my answers was writing a novel. And so I vowed to do that now.
Twenty years later, after a great deal of study and trial and error, I’ve written a lot more than one book. Now that I’m retired from the day job, I’m finally doing what I wanted to do all along: write mysteries in sunny Arizona while my two cats nap nearby.
