My Bio

  A native Californian, I have recently   returned from Italy, where I lived for   almost 16   years.  I’ve published many   short stories. "A Man of Honor,"   one of   the short stories I have had published in   Futures Mysterious Anthology   Magazine, was nominated for a   Pushcart Prize and, after I translated it   into Italian, won 2nd place in the Akery   National Literary Competition in   Acerra, Italy. LETHAL RELATIONS is   my first novel.

Terry Strong is a PI with a Black Belt in Taekwondo and a ceaseless determination.

Fred Greene has been murdered…in his own home while watching TV. The police have arrested his girlfriend, Barbara Metcalf. But Barbara’s brother, attorney Donald Remick doesn’t believe she did it. Remick hires Terry to prove Barbara’s innocence. But it won’t be easy. All the evidence points right to Barbara. Even Fred’s son, Robert, believes Barbara shot his father. She had been at the Greene residence that night just as Robert was leaving. Later that night, Fred was found dead…by Barbara.

Trying to untie all the twisted knots of relationships has Terry frustrated and confused while at the same time, her relationship with her sometime SO, Carl Black, compounds the stress. Adding to that the puzzling connection between Robert Greene and Donald Remick’s daughter, Sylvia, makes this a mystifying and difficult case to solve.

Terry finally unweaves all the strands and with the help of her Black Belt, brings this case to a shocking conclusion which no one expected.

The day after the first meeting, Oldfield is arrested for killing Louise. Oldfield hires Terry to clear him of the murder, sending Terry on an ever-changing whirlwind search to discover who Eloise/Louise truly was and who, in fact, killed her.
