Me (not a book!)

Here I am with my second novel BLUENESS which continues the travel saga of brave Kat Jensen. I’m a former internal audit manager and now a full-time novelist. I love traveling, especially on ships, to explore new ports of call. When I’m not living out of a suitcase, I’m home in Philadelphia with my Danish husband and cats.

I blog on, not just my novels, but my new hometown (Philadelphia), my old hometown (San Antonio) and ships, and travel. Lately, I’ve been blogging about libraries. Never knew they had such unique personalities.

A Thrill to Finally Hold AQUAVIT published in 2017

For more information on each of my novels, please see the separate website pages with the tabs, AQUAVIT and BLUENESS.

Right now, I’m working on my third novel about Kat Jensen. This time I am jumping ahead to when she returns from the cruise (can’t call it a vacation) to New York City and is working again. This novel should fit the category of “crime thriller” with a few detours in the pursuit of a better story. Eventually, I will get back on the clipper ship with Kat en route to Hong Kong. I left her in the last draft being held hostage by island rebels. But I’m getting ahead of myself and don’t want to ruin the surprises!
