It's Launch Day for DOUBLE BLACK: A SKI DIVA MYSTERY






Yes, I'm excited. Can you blame me? As of today, it's on the shelves and ready to roll!

For those of you who don't know, DOUBLE BLACK  is my debut novel. It's a ski mystery that features a young woman who moves to a Vermont ski town to become a ski bum. She doesn't have any money so she ends up sleeping in her car, until one day she stumbles across a ring of master keys for the area's vacation condos. Since the condos are unoccupied most of the time, she reasons, why not put them to good use? So she starts going from condo to condo, spending one night here, one night there, until late one night she opens a door and discovers -- a dead body. And that's where the book takes off.


I'll be making author appearances at some book stores, ski shops, and ski resorts. If one of these is near you, how about stopping in to say hi?

Be sure to visit TheSkiDiva.com, an internet forum especially for women skiers, where women skiers can connect with one another to talk about everything and anything ski-related.

Just finished the book and enjoyed it! It's was nice to be able to relate to a main character who loves to ski. I would have liked even a little bit more skiing action in the book though...and maybe a bit more romance. I hope this story is continued....
