I'm thrilled to be able to say that my newest Mimi Patterson/Gianna Maglione Mystery Novel, DEATH'S ECHOES, the fifth in that series, will be published by Bywater Books in February 2018 (M/G#6 is in progress), and that my collection of short stories, GOD'S WILL AND OTHER LIES, will be published by Black Lesbian Feminist Press in late 2018. My novel of historical fiction, BELLE CITY, was published by Whitepoint Press in 2014. I've also written six other mystery novels in two other series, and half a dozen stage plays. I was a journalist in my former life, a newspaper, radio and television reporter based primarily in Washington, DC. I live in Los Angeles with my partner of 18 years.
