Who are you and what have you done with Ranger Rick?

Author of the Calamity Jayne Mysteries & More

Excerpt from my upcoming Calamity Jayne Mystery #9, Calamity Jayne and the Kiss Me, Kiss Me Couples' Retreat. 

June 1, 2019

Welcome to my website! It's a work-in-progress and I am not tech-savvy, so bear with me. So much has happened since the release of my last book that I wanted to update readers and let you know what has been going on. In the last three-and-a-half years my mother passed away suddenly, my father passed away a year-and-a-half later, I was diagnosed with a heart valve issue, and a  

beloved immediate family member was diagnosed with Stage 4 Stromal Sarcoma. To say life has been a challenge is an understatement. The struggles continue, but I am now back writing on a semi-​regular basis and it is my hope to have the latest Calamity Jayne Mystery  finished this summer.

Calamity Jayne and the Kiss Me, Kill Me Couples' Retreat finds Tressa, Ranger Rick, and some of Grandville's quirky, but lovable, residents at a Couples' Retreat--but not just any couples' retreat.  A killer couples' retreat--featuring couples' "bonding" opportunities, couples' competitions, and culminating in a "mock" murder mystery that just might turn out to be the real deal. Stay tuned!

Thank so much to all the readers who have emailed asking about my next book. I am thrilled to be back writing again and so grateful for those readers who have stuck with me during this difficult time. I will strive not to disappoint as I continue the misadventures of Tressa Jayne and Company.
