"I don't think the problem is that people don't read enough mystery books, but that people don't read."
--Thomas Perry

"Lawyers enjoy a little mystery, you know. Why, if everybody came forward and told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth straight out, we should all retire to the workhouse."
--Dorothy L. Sayers

Thanks for dropping by! The latest Dotsy Lamb Travel Mystery from Five Star/Cengage, Death in an Ivory Tower, is set in my favorite town in the whole world, Oxford, UK. In this story Dotsy runs headlong into the murder of a King Arthur devotee at an Oxford college where such New Age nonsense is not tolerated. It didn't take much to persuade me I had to go to Oxford for the research.

Death of a Second Wife is now available as an audiobook at Audible; coming soon to iTunes, and Amazon.

My Sisters in Crime friends from across the state have collaborated on two anthologies called Virginia is for Mysteries, Vol. I and II. Volume II will be out in early 2016.  Read about them at http://virginiaisformysteries.com. All the stories, including three of mine, are set in Virginia.


Also, I'm almost finished writing my first historical mystery, set in Egypt in 1955. I won't say any more about it right now. Meanwhile, browse a bit and keep reading!
