Florida Mystery Suspense Author
I live in Tampa. All my stories are set in Florida.
However, I’m originally from Texas; I grew up in Grapevine, a small town just outside of Dallas. In addition to bass fishing and boot stomping, I raised a male African lion named Hakeem. To read more about Hakeem, and more about me than you’ll ever want to know, click below!
DO YOU LOVE MYSTERY?
I really appreciate the Advanced Reader Team. I sent each of them an advanced digital copy of DARKNESS HIDES so they can read it prior to the book release. On April 27th, they posted reviews on Amazon, GoodReads, and other sites. For all their hard work, I’ll be mailing them a signed paperback of DARKNESS HIDES.
