Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Shadow of Innocence: The Thin Man" meets "Pulp Fiction"
A unique mystery set amid the drugs-and- music scene of the sixties.
The Newport Folk Festival provides a groovy backdrop for this drug-and-sixties-music-soaked mystery, featuring partners in love and danger, Mick and Bridget, hopping on their motorcycles and into action. As the family of detectives quip, banter, and swing into action, posh Newport is threatened by a perverse, shadowy secret. Mick and Bridget's exuberance and optimism manage to glimmer through even the darkest of perils, as they delve into a seamy world of drugs and sex, and are forced to match wits with both the mob and a shadowy psychopathic killer.

Shadow of Innocence has it all: adventure, sleuthing, humor, DSM (drugs, sex, music), and a perverse, shadowy secret that threatens to tear apart the posh Newport town.
Don't miss the McCarthy family in action.

A Pleasant Surprise

A Pleasant Surprise

Driving home from one of my library talks tonight it occurred to me

that it was almost one year ago that I started doing signings and

events. So by now I should have a pretty good idea of what to

expect, right? Nope.

I've probably done at least 20 of these library talks and they

usually run around 8-10 people and last between an hour and an hour

and a half, consisting of a talk and then Q & A.

The usual 'remuneration'… Continue

Confessions of a sales pitch Junkie

It often seems today that in order to make it in todays competitive world of publishing, it's no longer enough to be just a good writer, you've also got to be passionate about and committed to, marketing your own works.

First of all, unless your John Grisham or JK Rowling, even the largest publisher is going to expect you to carry your own torch. And it can't be done halfheartedly either - plodding through it while thinking all…

I'm so excited!

Check out my latest blog post to read about my newest cover design, read the latest book review and find out how to attend my first book signing for the JGDS (Junior Geography Detective Squad) children's mystery state book series (signing as illustrator of course).

Here is the cover for the second book in the series just to tempt you further...

Isn't my job cool?

Hi Monica
Yeah, and she can't wait to go back to the land 'down under' again.

BTW... as you do romance, etc. I should mention that I have just 'broken the mold' a little for the characters in my mystery series and have incorporated some very mild erotica into the plot of my 3'd book in the series.
Part of the premis asks the question; "can a person be psychologically controlled and manipulated into being unfaithfull?"

Some of my readers who read my drafts seem to be uncomforatabe with it, as I have it affecting the beautiful and fiercely loyal female lead. And something like this would be a shocker for her and very much out of character (but that's the whole point)

I think that especially with a series, you've got to shake things up lest the relationship become boring and predictable.

Any thoughts?

Ric :) Glad your daughter enjoyed her visit to Oz. She's a wild and beautiful land. I recently visited the US on holiday-- LA--loved it. It's such a wonderful country. I can't wait to travel there again.
Cheers, M.
