I'm a graphic artist turned CPA, turned mystery thriller writer and the author of both mystery thrillers and true crime mysteries involving financial shenanigans and fraud.  I also write cozy mysteries with a touch of paranormal.

My latest series, The Westwick Witches Cozy Mysteries, is set in fictional Westwick Corners somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, where Cendrine West and her wacky witch family are always stirring up trouble.

I  also write two popular mystery/thriller series with the same character. Katerina Carter is a forensic accountant and fraud investigator with street smarts. She always does the right thing, though her unorthodox methods are a little hair-raising and heart stopping.  I also write nonfiction. Anatomy of a Ponzi Scheme: Scams Past and Present, exposes past, present and future Ponzi schemes and how they (almost) got away with their frauds.

I live on Canada's west coast.When not writing I'm usually out running or hiking with my rescue dog, Jaeger, or fighting weeds in my garden.

I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
