As a pre-teen, I had two passions: Nancy Drew mysteries and Pralines ’n Cream ice cream. So it was perhaps inevitable that I grew up to write a series called the Fat City Mysteries.
My stories are set in Durham, North Carolina, the self-proclaimed “Diet Capital of the World.” And like my journalist sleuth, Kate Gallagher, I understand the Battle of the Bulge all too well. I once lost 90 pounds to land a job on camera as a TV reporter. And even today, I avoid the street that goes past 31 Flavors.
Before I became a mystery writer, I graduated from Welleley College and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. After a brief, misguided career as a broadcast journalist, I turned my talents to fiction writing, where I belong. The Fat City Mysteries are published by Signet/Obsidian.
