Many thanks to everyone who came out to my book signing and launch party and panel. Now I know what it feels like to be a "celebrated" author!

Reviews are rolling in and I'm thrilled - and relieved - that they've been great. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read my little book baby and posted an honest review on Amazon or Goodreads. It's a small thing, but every time you post a review, tell your friends about a book, or request that your library carry an author's book, it helps keep that book alive.

I'm a people person, so although I love creating my world of Mystic Bay and the Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack, feedback is priceless. What am I saying, human contact is priceless, so stop by my Facebook page and say hello!

But now the parties are over and it's time to go back into writer mode. I'll emerge from writer's jail this spring, blinking into the sun, with Book Three winging off to my editor.

And I forgot to mention Book Two of the Lobster Shack Mystery Series, Against the Claw, will be published this summer! Here's a look at the cover - it's a hoot! Click to visit its Amazon page and get a taste of what's next for Allie and the crew at the Lazy Mermaid.

Thank you for making my dreams come true,

News from The Lazy Mermaid Lobster Shack

A dear friend called last night to tell me that Book One in my Lobster Shack Mystery series was now available for preorder on Amazon! What a kick! I hope you'll be able to come back soon and enjoy some time at the Lazy Mermaid lobster shack. I'm a native New Englander and love this opportunity to write about a place I love.
