Announcing the debut of my first paranormal mystery!

Release Day - Today, April 18, GONE AND DONE IT hits the marketplace. 

I am delighted to be debuting a new mystery series and a new sleuth! Baxley Powell stars in this dreamwalker series. She's a single mom barely making ends meet in a small southern town by petsitting and landscaping. When her father steps down from his title as county dreamwalker, Baxley has some pretty big shoes to fill.

Not only does she have to become familiar with her various, er, skills, but there are unwritten rules about what she can do on the Other Side, not to mention the shady characters who are determined to trick her and wreak havoc among the living.

Before you know it, Baxley finds not one, but two burial sites, the last one being very recent. Worse, the evidence points to Baxley. She needs all the help she can get, in this world and the next, to prove her innocence.

Early Reviews for Gone and Done It are in:

"A brisk plunge into the paranormal" Kirkus
"Wow! I couldn't put this book down once I started it!" Lori Mitchell Myers
"A unique style and likable characters" Joyce Lavene aka JJ Cook
"Loved this new series" Sherry Troop
"I very much enjoyed this book" Denise Zendel
"Paranormal fans will enjoy this ghostly whodunit" Paula Adams
"I loved it and couldn't put it down" Monica Pulliam
"I found myself captivated by the characters and the story plot" Robin McKay
"A book readers won't want to put down until the last word is read" Jacqueline Seewald

  5. Hey! You are extraordinarily talented. I didn't know this was stepping into the paranormal. Just by the title and the sleuth's name, it's still "you." I wish you well with this series, and hope it's as successful as the Cleo books.
