Murder is always personal in a small town

…which is why all my mystery series are set in small, isolated, communities peopled with an array of memorable characters. Twisted Cedars Mysteries are set in coastal Oregon; Bitter Root Mysteries in the mountains of Montana. The setting for my new series (in the works) may be my favorite yet, and I can’t wait to tell you why. Stay tuned!
