THE REVENANT OF THRAXTON HALL is a Nancy Pearl Award Finalist!

I have been a proud member of the Pacific Northwest Writer's Association for years now, so it gives me great pride to announce that THE REVENANT OF THRAXTON HALL is a finalist in the PNWA's yearly Nancy Pearl Award. Yippee!

Named for Seattle's beloved librarian and literary critic, the award recognises novels published by PNWA members. The winners will be announced at the PNWA's annual conference in July. But, sad to say, unless someone mails me a plane ticket, I won't be attending.

However, if you are lucky enough to attend this most excellent annual writer's conference, you will be able to purchase copies of my novels in the book store.

DEAD ASSASSIN an open and shut case for Criminal

The prestigious mystery web site, Criminal, just released a glowing review of THE DEAD ASSASSIN.

Even though she hasn't read the first novel in the Paranormal Casebooks series, reviewer Katherine Tomlinson was very impressed with how quickly the narrative catcher the reader up with the mystery and the milieu in "just a few elegant paragraphs."

You can read the full review at the Criminal Element website:

THE DEAD ASSASSIN Slays His First Victim!

The second book in the Paranormal Casebooks series, THE DEAD ASSASSIN has yet to hit the bookstores but it is already grabbing some great reviews.

The first book in the series, THE REVENANT OF THRAXTON HALL, received a rapturous review from an Aussie-Lady-Turned-Edinburgh-Book-Blogger by the name of Mel.

So when I received my ARCs of THE DEAD ASSASSIN, it seemed a good idea to forward one to Mel. I did and here's she tweeted upon reading it:
