Final Book in the Tuper Series


The fourth and final book in the Tuper series is here! The book is called Liberating Lana. If you’ve read the other three books in the series, MASON’S MISSING, FINDING FRANKIE, and RECOVERING RITA, you know that Lana has some big secrets. She’s been looking over her shoulder throughout the series and obviously hiding from someone. LIBERATING LANA reveals her past history. However, she’s not the only one with secrets, Tuper has a few of his own that are revealed as well.

The book will be released on October 16, 2023 and is now available for pre-order on Kindle. Just CLICK HERE or on the cover, and it will take you to straight to the book on Amazon.

Happy Reading,


New Book in The Tuper Mystery Series

LIBERATATING LANA is the fourth and final book in The Tuper Mystery Series. Here’s the cover, my readers chose:


This was a fun series to write with the old cowboy, Tuper, and the young, spunky hacker, Lana. They keep you on your toes with their bickering, but they always come through for each other when needed.

I know you’ve all been waiting to find out what Lana has been hiding. Here’s your chance. Her story unfolds before your very eyes. But she’s not the only one with secrets; Tuper has a few of his own. If you enjoyed the first three books, you’ll love this one.

THE ADVOCATE’S MEMORY Releases August 9, 2022

The 13th book in The Advocate series, THE ADVOCATE’S MEMORY, releases on 8/9/2022. For those of you who haven’t discovered it yet, my books are written in alphabetical order. This book puts me at the half way mark. I’m starting down the hill with the “N” book. There’s still time to submit a word suggestion for the title. Remember, it must start with N. The Advocate’s N______. I understand you don’t know what the book is going to be about–I don’t either. Your suggestions often trigger a storyline for me.


There’s also still time to pre-order The Advocate’s Memory on Kindle. It is discounted through the release date 8/9/22.

I guess it’s time for me to start writing again. Off I go…

Murder on the Hoof

If you’re looking for a good book to read or a new author, here’s a chance to try Gayle Carline’s novel, Murder on the Roof. It’s a good mystery, and Gayle always adds some humor. This book normally sells for $3.99, but right now it is on sale for only $.99.

She was looking for a horse. What she found was romance. And danger.

Willie Adams is at the L.A. Equestrian Center shopping for her first horse. A young widow struggling with the idea of dating again, she never expected that a gorgeous trainer like Tyler Ransome would notice her. But he did.
He wasn’t the only one, either. Bobby Fermino is not as handsome, nor as pleasant. After attacking Willie he ends up dead in her tack room, leaving her the most likely suspect.

Willie has to convince Detective Lucas Macy that she’s innocent, but her physical attraction to him isn’t making the task easy.

With growing evidence pointing to her, and two famous actors drawing attention to the investigation, Willie decides to take the reins. She must find the murderer before they find her, but will she survive opening her heart to someone new?

Have fun!
