I’m a fiction writer and have been working on my stories since 1983. That’s when my second boy was born and I figured I better have something to keep my brain going! I have published 28 novels plus short stories and articles. I once was the film reviewer for the BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN newspaper and love movies. I served on the national boards of directors for Mystery Writers of America and International Ass’n of Crime Writers/North America. Every summer I join the faculty for the Jackson Hole Writers Conference, critiquing, workshopping, and talking writing with writers of all stripes. I lived in Wyoming twice, in Jackson and Lander, twenty years apart. In between, and now, I am home in Montana. I still remember all the words to that childhood song I learned in fourth grade: “My home’s in Montana, I wear a bandanna, my spurs are of silver, my pony is gray…” So far I have neither pony nor spurs but I love my home state.
I went to high school and college in Lincoln, Nebraska, at Lincoln High School and the University of Nebraska, where I had a double major in broadcast journalism and sociology. I got a master’s degree in communications at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I live in rural Madison County, Montana, along one of America’s premier trout rivers. I have a cat! And a husband, two sons, two granddaughters and a grandson.
I love hearing from readers. I find my books often have a bit of philosophy in them, about how life affects you in different stages. And crime, always a bit of bloody crime. (Except for All Your Pretty Dreams. That’s my “new adult” novel.)
