I write crime suspense thrillers that explore race, oppression family secrets and relationships. And yes, there is always a little wink and a raised eyebrow when I say that because good suspense engages, perches you on the edge of your seat and spins a tale that makes you hold your breath and just when you think you can release it…boom…the next twist. I can’t stop smiling about the stories I tell.



Coasting On E – A young woman returns home after a lie of abuse destroyed her father’s political career

Floating Girl – Two Native cops search for two girls missing from a North Dakota reservation leading them to sex slavery ring on the Great Lakes in Minnesota.


Stands Alone – A Mixed Blood cop with the help of her ancestors takes on a white supremacist who starts a race war.

Mayberry Circle Club – A cop has to solve the assault of a young girl before her brother and friends in the neighborhood seek revenge.
