The SuperBowl Sunday Salon

Welcome to my first Sunday Salon on my new URL!  I can’t tell you how excited I am that you’re here with me.  Taking this live new site live has certainly been an adventure.  In many ways I wished that I had done this a year ago, but I wouldn’t have made the investment in […]

On April 20, I had the opportunity to speak with Lander Marks about her new novel, Artist’s Proof. This is her first novel and will be released within the next week. I had a great time talking with her about the novel, but I was most intrigued by a mystery that has very recently discovered […]
