Sit back, relax by a roaring fire, by the pool, or just in a comfy chair.
Have a cup of tea or cocoa...or a nice glass of wine. There will be no monsters,
no war, or nightmares. My mysteries may have light horror and some blood.
Lull yourself in soft romance, mystery, and contemporary relationships in the
real world, and maybe partake of a few mild sexual scenes. You will be dredged
in the emotions of the characters as they pursue love and overcome adversities,
broken relationships, or grief and loss. Snuggle with a box of tissues for tears
or laugher, but reserve a period of time for my stories to transport you to the
land of contentment.
