Once told to read Jeffery Deaver to learn how to write a mystery, I became hooked. He manages to instill a twist in everything he writes.

Seems I'm just as twisted.

Find out by reading my stories.  ;-)

This is the fourth anthology by the Malice in Memphis Mystery Writers Group that I produced, but the first I received cover credit for editing.

I set out to figure out how to publish a novel I'd written, joined a writer's group, learned a lot, got published, but it didn't turn out as planned as so many things do in life. I'd thrown in the towel when another author called and insisted, I continue my path, my way.

Originally planned as a series, Mysta, will return soon as a trilogy. The genre is hard to pin down, from suspense to romance, from thriller to horror, you'll just have to stay tuned to find out more.
