Thanks For Visiting! I love to write sassy, strong heroines who, unfortunately, tend to
get into desperate situations. You'll find some stories funny and others dark, but I'm a believer in happy endings. Even if it takes some time and wading through a lot of trouble to get there. Keep reading below!
The bestselling Cherry Tucker Mystery Series (Henery Press): Meet Cherry Tucker, big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than kudzu climbs telephone poles!
The Cherry Tucker Mystery series with Henery Press begins with Portrait of a Dead Guy, a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist, a 2012 The Emily finalist, and a 2011 Dixie Kane Memorial winner.
Following Portrait are Still Life in Brunswick Stew, the 2014 Georgia Author of the Year and Silver Falchion nominee, Hijack in Abstract, and Death in Perspective, the 2015 Georgia Author of the Year finalist for Best Mystery. The Cherry Tucker novella, Quick Sketch, in the mystery anthology The Heartache Motel is a prequel to Portrait.
The Body in the Landscape (#5) released December 15, 2015. Cherry Tucker's escaping problems in Halo with a trip to the Big Rack Hunting Lodge to paint the winning "kill portrait" for a Hogzilla hunt contest. Between an accidental death and a serious of malicious pranks, Cherry fears the hunting party may be the prey for a vengeful stalker.
Coming in 2016, A Composition in Murder, A Cherry Tucker Mystery #6. When Cherry volunteers to teach drawing at Halo House--Halo, Georgia's premier independent living facility--she finds herself witnessing a will and embroiled in the scandalous intrigue of Meemaw's Tea company, a family-run tea empire where the tea is sweetened with murder.
Working on it!
