At the age of ten, I developed an interest in ghastly tales. My love for suspense and mystery began with a novel by Agatha Christie. But my interest in murder and mayhem didn’t stop with plain old murder mysteries. I devoured comic books with paranormal detectives, ghosts, monsters, sinister old houses, and shocking crimes. Movies with vampires, blobs, creatures crawling from swamps, zombies, giant ants, and more kept me entertained for hours. So naturally, I decided to write my own stories.
I sold my first novel to Kensington publishing for their groundbreaking Arabesque line. NIGHT MAGIC went on to be recognized for Excellence in Romance Fiction by Romantic Times Magazine. My third novel, AFTER ALL, became a movie produced by BET. Holly Robinson Peete was the female lead as Michelle Toussaint, an investigative television reporter who uncovers scandal and murder.
My most recent titles include BEST ENEMIES, DEVILISH DETAILS, and PRETTY DANGEROUS, cozy murder mysteries with an edge called The Triple Trouble Series. Three amateur female sleuths track down whodunit in the most unique ways.
My paranormal murder mystery series set in Vermilion Parish Louisiana features psychic LaShaun Rousselle and Deputy Chase Broussard. Together they catch human and supernatural killers Enjoy these southern gothic tales with plenty of Louisiana Creole spice.
Then my love of spirit tales got urban. The Joliet Sisters Psychic Detectives series is set in steamy New Orleans. Charmaine and Jessi Joliet uncover deadly secrets in the city. Turns out dead men are eager to tell tales! The first two novellas, SMOOTH OPERATOR AND HUNTING SPIRITS, are in eBook, print, and audiobook format. Three longer novels in the series are DEAD WRONG, DEAD AHEAD, AND DIE TRYING.
What's next? The Dr. Zen Mystery Series. Stay tuned.
