Book 2 in the Maggie Newberry Mysteries, “Murder à la Carte.” When her boyfriend inherits an ancient vineyard in France, Maggie Newberry quits her job in Atlanta to accompany him for a year abroad. They settle in the tiny village of St-Buvard, but murder has gone long before them and follows close behind.
Murder a la Carte brings Atlanta copywriter Maggie Newberry to the brink of two connected murders–both committed in her home–and both poised to threaten everything she holds dear. When Maggie agrees to move to France with her boyfriend–a French ex-confidence man who has just inherited a house and vineyard–she doesn’t expect her year of French market shopping and weekend trips to Paris to be interrupted by a vicious murder in her living room. Or that the bloody violence that occurred on their front doorstep sixty years earlier after the end of the Second World War might be connected. This audiobook will give you a delicious escape into the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of Provence–all tucked nicely within the framework of a tightly woven mystery that will keep you guessing until the very last page.

The start of the Irish End Games series, Free Falling is Book 1 and your first step into adventure, thrills and  not a little bit of horror.

A fun family vacation turns into an apocalyptic nightmare when a couple and their young son find themselves trapped in the Irish countryside during an international crisis. With all contact outside the country gone, all electricity and all non-horse-powered vehicles useless, and desperate bands of outlaws roaming the Emerald Isle, the time has come for one soft American family to reach deep within for the reserve of brains and courage to survive.

Available on Audible here.



In Going Gone, Book 2 of the dystopian series, The Irish End Game, tragedy strikes the three Americans where they live in Ireland. Sarah Woodson is brutally taken across the Irish Sea to the pastoral beauty of England’s Cotswold’s and discovers the horrors of a post-apocalyptic sex slave trade.

Determined to escape her captors—including a monster who’s vowed never to let her leave England alive—and to survive the impossible journey of a thousand miles through the harsh Welsh wilderness, Sarah uses every resource she has to find her way home again. Going Gone is an adventure tale of heart-stopping proportion showing the resiliency of the human spirit and the unfathomable depths of a mother’s love.

Things can get pretty dark in the City of Light

Claire Baskerville is a sixty-something American who finds herself alone in Paris when her husband is brutally murdered. Reeling from the onslaught of devastating secrets he left behind Claire is stunned to realize she no longer knows who to trust.

She only knows she can’t move forward until she finds out the truth behind who killed her husband.

In spite of a genetic brain anomaly that makes it impossible for her to remember faces –even ones she’d seen just moments before, and all alone in a foreign city, Claire doggedly collects the clues that will lead her to her husband’s killer.

Unfortunately, the closer she gets to the truth, the more determined that killer is to make sure she never leaves Paris alive.

Some say that Saint-Rémy-de-Provence is the most beautiful village in all of France. That’s especially true at Christmastime when the scent of baked gingerbread mingles with the fragrance of evergreen boughs and wafts deliciously through the village’s quaint cobblestone lanes. It’s hard to believe anything sinister could be waiting in any of its many charming streets and alleyways.

But when American ex-pat Maggie Newberry finds a pregnant, homeless teenager there she’s thrust into a whirling maelstrom of enmity and treachery that quickly reveals in devastating clarity that not all families are created equal.

In fact, some are so badly damaged nothing can fix them.

Except possibly murder.

Audiobook will release in time to enjoy along with the holiday season December 12, 2019.

With the wine harvest behind them, things had just started to calm down for Maggie and Laurent in their French village of Saint-Buvard when a team of food industry entrepreneurs and celebrity judges arrives to put on a contest to decide in a blind taste test which country makes the best chocolate éclairs—the Brits, the Americans, the Germans or the French.

When one of the contestants ends up stabbed to death, the suspect is a close friend. Maggie will need to find a way past the woman’s obvious motive and the damning circumstantial evidence to free her friend—without putting herself or Laurent in the hot seat in the process.

(Bonus: Laurent’s classic chocolate éclair recipe is at the end of the book.)
