Oh hey!

As a writer, I try not to take myself too seriously. What I do take seriously is writing easy-to-read stories for grown-ass women. 

There are no clueless 20-something vixens waiting to be rescued by some hot dominant stud. My heroines have seen a little bit of life and darn it, they're going to rescue themselves.

Oh, don't get me wrong. You'll also find some smokin' hot foxes in my stories, but these guys respect a strong, confident woman over 40, and they have swoon-worthy ways of showing their appreciation.

Best of all, my books are just for you.

You don't have to share it with anyone else in the house unless you want to.

Start with A Hot Flash of Homicide today.

Reviews for the Flamingo Cove Series

“I can’t believe how fabulous [A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis] was. The 2nd in a series I never want to end.
Intriguing, funny, sexy & heartwarming all rolled into one.
This would make a great TV series!”

This would make a great TV series! MJ, purchased 'A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis'

A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis was a perfect follow-up to A Hot Flash of Homicide. The wise-cracking Wysdom Ward is back and more badass than ever.  This plot is high-octane all the way. From the opening chase to the final facedown, Wysdom is not letting up when it comes to solving the case and saving her PERSON. I thoroughly enjoyed her snarky outlook despite the desperate situation and was satisfied with the *fans face* happy ending ;)”

Dawn Dugle is a FIND! A Hot Flash of Homicide is crazy sexy and funny as hell while being a top-notch police procedural. The Ward family of cops and the mysterious God Among Men are compelling. I’m reminded of John D. MacDonald—if he’d written M/F slash fiction. Thank goodness Ms. Dugle has committed to making this a series.

For anyone that is of “that age”, Wysdom’s struggles are real. Hot flashes, irritability, and everything else that goes with perimenopause make every day an adventure. Add an infuriating ex-husband and working with your family and you have Wysdom’s struggles. When her family forgets her 40th birthday she decides to find her own gift.

Luke is fine with being Wysdom’s birthday gift. And their chemistry is instant. But when he’s accused of murder, Wysdom is placed in a very precarious position.

A little romantic suspense mixed in with a little RomCom makes this a joy to read. I didn’t want to put it down and that last page is a doozy.

Can’t wait to see what is in store for Wysdom and Luke.

Great combination of romantic suspense and RomCom Stephanie Hutchinson, bought 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'

Very, very funny and entertaining. A quick read. Easy to identify with the lead character and her perimenopause. Ready to go onto the next book in the series.

Very, Very Funny & Entertaining Mary Ryan, purchased 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'

I never ever read an entire book in less than 24 hours. I could not put [A Hot Flash of Homicide] down. Totally enthralled with the twists and turns. Never predictable. The characters are well-defined and interesting. Can’t wait for more in the series!

A page-turner with spice! MJ, bought 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'
