It has been several months in coming but it is finally here! I am thrilled!





I am excited to announce Mariah’s Revenge, the sequel to Hunting Mariah, is now here! Here is the cover that my husband created. The model is my beautiful niece, Laura, who graciously agreed to model for both books.

Book Blurb For Mariah’s Revenge:

This book begins where the first book, Hunting Mariah, left off. A suspense/thriller/crime novel that will keep you turning pages as the suspense grows. There will be twists and turns and some surprises. Many of the same characters will be in play to give support and encouragement to Mariah along the way.

A new man comes into Mariah’s life that reminds her of someone she wants to forget. He threatens to bring back the horrors that she and her family once endured. While the one she wants to forget suffers from a horrendous attack that puts his life in jeopardy.

Mariah must draw on her strength and resilience to survive danger at every turn. How much more can Mariah endure? How far will Mariah go to protect her family? 

All my books are available on and here on my blog on the right by clicking on the covers of each book.

Don’t forget the first book, Hunting Mariah, is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. In order to understand the story and the mind of the killer you should read Hunting Mariah before Mariah’s Revenge.

Book Blurb for Hunting Mariah:

An insane killer, obsessed with blood and death, seeks revenge with those he perceives wronged him. He is now on the loose. His next victim may be Mariah.

Mariah has lost her memory. Will she remember what has transpired in her past? Can Mariah escape this deadly killer’s grasp. Will she finally be safe? Will the killer be apprehended?


HAPPY READING if you dare! I would love to hear from readers about these books and welcome reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes & Noble.

Blessings & Hugs!
