Author of contemporary romance mystery-suspense novels including the Cady Blackwell Mysteries Series. Prolific reader and pontificator of heartfelt reviews.
Reading is a lifelong passion and mysteries are have always been the holy grail. It began with Trixie Belden and the Hardy Boys, graduating to JD Robb and Greg Iles. From the whimsical antics of Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum to the grit and shock of Dennis Lehane’s Kenzie and Gennaro series, I love them all, and everything in between.
The accompanying true crime obsession and penchant for scary movies are probably no surprise but the devotion to contemporary romance novels may be unexpected. It all began with a single book, Vicious by LJ Shen. That rainy day read quickly became a driving need to consume first the Sinners of Saint series, quickly followed by the All Saints High series. Browsing suggestions soon led me to Adriana Locke, Fiona Quinn, Siobhan Davis, Meghan Quinn and many more.
This blog is a place to share the books I love and introduce them to new readers. Suggestions are always wanted so please tell me your favorites and what you’d like to see reviewed next.
An avid reader, I’m very picky and easily lose interest so when I get bored with the available offerings, I take matters into my own hands. When I can’t find something I’m excited to read, I write my own stories. This is how the Cady Blackwell Mystery series was born.
My first book, Go For Broke, is coming September 2021 from Boroughs Publishing. Until then, I’ll be reviewing many of my personal favorite reads and maybe sharing a few teasers so readers can meet Cady and her friends.
Besides reading, I love podcasts and hope to one day write the scene where Cady’s interviewed by Nick and the Captain on True Crime Garage because it’s my absolute favorite. Music is another obsession and everything I write is set to music so every story has a soundtrack. I live with my husband and son and the world’s derpiest but most lovable dog and I can’t wait for the world to meet Cady and her friends.
