Do you see writing as a career?
I think a lot of people would love to write as a career but given that I self-publish I know there is so much work that goes into it that I don’t think it’s viable. You have to put a lot of time, energy and funds into promoting your work to make sufficient income to support yourself. Plus, I love my day job and don’t want to give that up.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I’m mostly into urban fantasy and international thrillers. In addition to committing to read 35 books this year, I’m also checking out 3 or 4 new authors to add to my repertoire.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
I usually always have music on when I’m writing o r editing. It helps me think. I also have a lot of playlists on my phone and there are definitely times where a certain one gets me in the right headspace to work on a particular project. And sometimes, a project can be motivated by more than one playlist.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
When I was younger, I could do multiple projects at once but as I’ve gotten older, I find I need to concentrate on one project at a time so that’s what I do. I give the characters and story my full attention before moving on to the next one. For instance, while I have work out to betas, I’ll work on a different project and then put that one down when it’s time to go back to the first one.

Pen or type writer or computer?
Computer all the way. For one thing, my handwriting isn’t that great and given my vision problems, being able to read what I’ve written is kind of crucial. Plus, I type very quickly so I’m able to get more down typing in a shorter amount of time. And I can make thing as big as I need them to be.

While Detective Harper runs his investigation, she cozies up to the dead woman’s best friend, Mrs. Grant, and learns that she and a third woman, Ms. Ellicott, might be targets. Someone has sent them notes with the cryptic warning ‘Lying is a mortal sin’. As Kalina digs deeper into the women’s shared past, she unearths the perjury that sentenced an innocent man to prison.

The small town of Ellesworth, MA is abuzz with the upcoming wedding of Kalina Greystone and newly promoted Police Captain Christian Harper. But not everyone is thrilled for the happy couple. On the morning of Chris’s promotional ceremony, they receive a shocking package—a severed finger wearing an engagement ring! Under the guise of last-minute wedding preparations, Kalina questions a local jeweler who may have sold the ring adorning the finger. In fact, he’d sold three such rings recently. When a second finger is sent to a local reporter and the bodies of the victims are discovered near the beach, Kalina knows there is little time left to find the third victim. But why target these brides-to-be? After digging deeper, she uncovers a startling connection between the players and must race to save the woman who is the true target of the killer’s rage.

Your favorite amateur sleuth is back for one last case in the final installment of the Geeks and Things Cozy Mystery series.


Kalina Greystone’s life has finally fallen into place. Now happily married and eight months pregnant, she is ready to step away from sleuthing and give all of her time to her family and Geeks and Things. Unfortunately, sleuthing isn’t quite done with her. On a trip to the cemetery to visit her father’s grave, she happens upon a dead woman’s body. Video footage reveals the killer but the case takes one bizarre turn after the next. The woman, Verona Maxwell, shares fingerprints with Paige Fischer, a little girl who died over fifteen years ago in a boating accident with her twin brother, Patrick. Or did they? The killer looks an awful lot like Patrick. Having briefly known the twins in her youth, Kalina searches their past in the hopes of making sense of the present. But the more she digs, the darker the reality becomes. Systemic abuse by Paige and parental neglect rise to the surface, making her wonder if the past isn’t as buried as everyone was led to believe.
