I dipped my pinkie toe into the world of fiction writing with a short story in the Blasted Heath crime fiction collection, Worth the Wait. I waded further into the writerly waters when my short story “The Best Dish” was named winner of the 2013 Bloody Scotland Short Story Competition. Gaining confidence, I cannonballed into the deep end and published a novel. Lo and behold, the Amazon best-selling Reverend Lindsay Harding mystery series splashed into being. More recently, my short story “The Blackness Before Me” made waves as the lead-off piece in the 2017 Malice Domestic Anthology: Murder Most Historical, edited by Charlaine Harris and my sci-fi story “Equality Day” won the Artemis Journal/Lightbringer Award at the LitFest Pasadena.
Before I started writing fiction, I spent years stuffing my brain full of knowledge and traipsing around the world working in project management roles with university research centers.
I live with my husband and various children in Virginia, USA. The most recent book in the Reverend Lindsay Harding series is The Burnt Island Burial Ground, available on Amazon. I’m currently working on a middle-grade series set in Scotland and a new mystery series.
