Let Your Imagination Run Wild

Murder Mystery Novels Featuring Women Sleuths

Animal Lover and Attorney Turned Novel Writer


Meet the Author

I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my husband Duane and a pack of rescue dogs. Before I quit to become a full-time writer, I worked as an attorney for the Maricopa County Public Defender, handling cases in adult and juvenile court.

I write a paranormal mystery series featuring attorney Petra Rakowitz, who reinvents herself as a witch while she solves murder cases. The first novel in the series, Murder Casts a Spell, is currently available on Amazon. The second and third books will soon be appearing.

My writing genres include mystery, suspense, and urban fantasy. Six of my short stories have been published, two in Arizona Attorney and four in Sisters in Crime anthologies sponsored by the Desert Sleuths Chapter.

Featured Book

Lawyer Petra Rakowitz vows to find her long-lost birth mother. To avoid a reunion in jail, Petra must solve a tricky murder case before Mom emerges as the prime suspect.

Petra expects her new witchy powers will help her save Mom from the murder rap. Her quest stumbles when she’s told Mom doesn’t want to meet her. Crushed, she still intends to find the murderer before the cops discover Mom had a motive to kill.

Join Petra’s quest and enter a world of magic where your next-door neighbor might be a witch or a wizard.
