Works in Progress

Finished Manuscripts:

The Apple Pie Alibi – a 80,000 word, culinary themed cozy mystery. A small town waitress becomes an amateur sleuth when an arrogant chef is murdered and her grandmother seems to be the only suspect.

Submitted to Henery Press for consideration! (I’d cross my fingers, but I need them to keep typing the sequel.)


The Crucible – 3,500 word short story about a prep school teacher who has been striving for Ivy League stardom, only to find a better opportunity within his own school. Better, until his first day on the job. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the chalkboard.

Currently submitted for consideration by  NOW PUBLISHED BY The World Unknown Review.


Currently being workshopped at Penguin’s Book Country:

The Milk Chocolate Murder – the second book in the Winnie Kepler culinary-mystery series. Here, Winnie goes from getting a boyfriend to perhaps a proposal. If only those darned dead bodies wouldn’t keep interrupting her boyfriend’s efforts.


On the horizon:

The Wedding Cake Witness will be a true locked room mystery, the third novel in the Winnie Kepler series. Will she solve the rehearsal dinner murder in time to walk down the aisle the next day?

    • Thanks for the shout out! The book is a first effort by the editor, L.S. Engler. Some issues here and there, but overall I like it. My story was never actually intended to be published; it was a writing exercise. But she liked it anyway so there you go. I hope you find it interesting.
