It’s aLIVE! NIGHT CRIES. Plus Giveaway Winners!

Newest novel release, NIGHT CRIES.


Thirty-year-old Maddie has no memory of being adopted. An only child, her parents loved and protected her. Family means everything. When her daily foundation crumbles after she miscarries and her husband leaves with her best friend, retreat becomes her coping tool. She’s soon forced out of seclusion by her rising success as a crime writer. The public spotlight brings menace in the form of an abusive ex-lover intent on revenge. He stalks her, waiting for his chance…until…an unlikely savior intervenes. She is Maddie’s long-lost sister, her mirror image twin. The sisters revel in a special bond, as if no time has passed.

What is a ‘mirror twin’? Mirror image twins are literally a reflection of one another, identical twins with opposite features. They share the same DNA and similar fingerprints. Many claim to share a psychic connection. One mind in two bodies? You decide.


Excerpt of Night Cries:

Anchored to that moment on the green marble porch, a vibration hummed in the air around Maddie. As ridiculous as it seemed, a bizarre static charge linked her to the woman standing on the threshold of that magnificent estate. Her identical twin.

She grabbed Maddie’s hands. The sensation of live current surged through her body, bringing with it flashes of holding hands, hugging, and whispering secrets in each other’s ears.

Justine stepped out onto the porch, and they embraced. More images swirled around her—sitting cross-legged under a kitchen table, knees touching, their small hands over their mouths. In her extensive research for her novel on multiples, she’d read clairvoyance played an essential part in the lives of twins. Shared emotions, dreams, pain. Some telepathic link between them might have made it possible for her to know a sister existed. She’d been skeptical until then. A twin she’d been unaware of, or forgotten all these years, might have influenced her life.

A sudden chill on the back of her neck made her shiver.

Justine released her and took a step back. She hugged herself and rubbed her hands over the rising goose bumps on her upper arms. “It’s cold out here. Let’s go inside. We have so much catching up to do.”

They crossed the threshold together into a grand entry. Zach followed.

Justine led them into the high-ceilinged great room then to the back of the house and a smaller room with an ocean view. The more casual décor instantly put Maddie at ease.

“Sometimes I feel like I’m in a museum.” Justine kicked off her shoes and sat cross-legged in a wingback chair strategically placed on a Persian rug to complement the pattern. “Tony’s tastes run toward the grandiose. Mine are less refined.”

“It’s a beautiful house,” Maddie said. “I wouldn’t want to clean it.”

Justine laughed. “Me either.”

Their conversation started out slow and hesitant. Since Justine initiated the reunion and knew Maddie was her sister, naturally she took control. It seemed strange to call it a reunion. Before that day, Maddie had no memory of her early childhood. No memory of Justine.

Then the comparisons began. They were news junkies and Scrabble addicts. They had the same tastes in music, art, literature, and movies. They compared the dolphin-shaped birthmarks on their necks and marveled at the exactness of their eyes, golden flecks floating in a hazel shade that picked up more green than blue. They wore the same brand of perfume, an imported scent made from gardenias.

Sitting across from her twin sister was like watching a scene from a paranormal movie. Justine’s hand gestures and body language appeared the same. Her voice and her laugh sounded the same as well. The same inflections and speech patterns, but Justine was more relaxed. A confident extrovert. She owned the space around her.

While they talked, Zach slipped out through the double-doors onto the terrace and kicked back on a chaise lounge. He thumbed through a basket of magazines, looking for a mailing label. Always the cop.

Even though she and Justine were completely enthralled with one another, she knew Zach wouldn’t accept Justine at face value. Theirs was a unique situation, one over which Zach had no control once Justine had rescued her. Yet Zach, with his law enforcement background, would want to take a closer look into her background. Fine with her. Maddie had a few questions of her own.

Better Late Than Never… New Novel!

I’m back and {thrilled}} to announce my soon to be released thriller! Yes, FINALLY!
Cover by Indie Designz

Thirty-year-old Maddie has no memory of being adopted. An only child, her parents loved and protected her. Family means everything. When her daily foundation crumbles after she miscarries and her husband leaves with her best friend, retreat becomes her coping tool. She’s soon forced out of seclusion by her rising success as a crime writer. The public spotlight brings menace in the form of an abusive ex-lover intent on revenge. He stalks her, waiting for his chance…until…an unlikely savior intervenes. She is Maddie’s long-lost sister, her mirror image twin. The sisters revel in a special bond, as if no time has passed.

Zach, a former LAPD homicide detective and Maddie’s writing partner, doesn’t take anything at face value. He digs into the sister’s background, revealing hellish early years on a farm that may have caused irrevocable damage. What he finds leads him to suspect she may be connected to a rash of vigilante murders.

As Maddie investigates her past, she must confront her new reality. She is haunted by unexplained fears and a recurring nightmare. The blood runs bad in this family. Long repressed memories gradually surface, forcing her to solve the mystery of her bone tree nightmare. Will the truth set her free…or destroy her?

To celebrate my new thriller I’m giving away a special prize (a custom-made indoor/outdoor wreath of your choice by WickedWreathz). If you’re a member of my Night Team, you’re automatically entered in the giveaway for this stunning prize. If you’re not a member, please sign up for my newsletter to be included.
