Picture

The Undercover FBI Series – At this time there are 7 standalone books to the series, with the 8th in the pipeline.

I started writing these books back in April of 2014, when I came up with the idea of standalone, fast-paced, conflict-driven romantic suspense stories. A friend of mine had built his own plane and took me for a ride. All I could think about was how cool it would be to have a character in law enforcement who could fly her own plane. (Special Agent Francesca, Book #1)

The FBI connection came soon after when I decided I wanted it to be a series about kick-ass characters and not be restrained by their gender. I mean there are as many strong, powerful, classy women in that arena as there are men…. Right? 

After I started writing Special Agent Francesca, I’d found my niche. It was fun… pure unadulterated joy to let my imagination roam while I forced her into conflict after conflict that would test her mettle. Since I love humor, it seeped through and many of my reviews have mentioned that the book is enjoyable for that reason. 

After I wrote the first book, my hubby asked me to write the next one with a male protagonist, and he suggested I call the agent Finnegan. Just the name sparked all kinds of entertaining situations and it became my Christmas book for that year. This time, I added a secondary character called Joker who was Finnegan’s Irish, bar-owner father. (It was the name my husband always used for his own Dad.) 

That’s when I realized the beauty of having people I know being slipped into my fictional stories. Turns out, The Joker became a favorite – if most of the reviews are to be believed. Since then, almost every book in the series has a character from my own life and it’s been a hoot to take the best from those I love and let the world see them as I do. (Special Agent Charli – the character Poppa John is a dead-ringer for my beloved pops. In the book, he’s funny, adorable and smart – just like the real Poppa John used to be. (Many of his fictional high jinks are factual) If you go to the book’s Amazon page and read the reviews, you’ll find that most readers mention this person and seem to love him.
