Thanks For Visiting! I love to write sassy, strong heroines who, unfortunately, tend to
get into desperate situations. You'll find some stories funny and others dark, but I'm a believer in happy endings. Even if it takes some time and wading through a lot of trouble to get there.  

Southern Writers Mag 1 2015The bestselling Cherry Tucker Mystery Series (Henery Press): Meet Cherry Tucker, big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than kudzu climbs telephone poles! 

The Cherry Tucker Mystery series with Henery Press begins with Portrait of a Dead Guy, a 2012 Daphne du Maurier finalist, a 2012 The Emily finalist, and a 2011 Dixie Kane Memorial winner. Following Portrait are Still Life in Brunswick Stew, the 2014 Georgia Author of the Year and Silver Falchion nominee, Hijack in Abstract, and Death in Perspective, the 2015 Georgia Author of the Year finalist for Best Mystery. The Cherry Tucker novella, Quick Sketch, in the mystery anthology The Heartache Motel is a prequel to Portrait.

The Body in the Landscape (#5) releases December 15, 2015. Cherry Tucker's escaping problems in Halo with a trip to the Big Rack Hunting Lodge to paint the winning "kill portrait" for a Hogzilla hunt contest. Between an accidental death and a serious of malicious pranks, Cherry fears the hunting party may be the prey for a vengeful stalker.

Working on it! This spring and summer, I'm writing Cherry Tucker's sixth mystery set in an independent living home, Halo House. More humorous mysteries will be coming your way, including 15 Minutes the first in the Maizie Albright: Star Detective series.

I can't wait to meet y'all! I love to chat, so check out my links to Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and Pinterest! Or join the Mystery Minions and get on the Larissa Reinhart and LynDee Walker street team! You can always drop me at line, too. I love to hear from readers!

A Cherry Tucker Mystery #5


When Cherry Tucker’s invited to paint the winning portrait for Big Rack Lodge’s Hogzilla hunt contest, it seems like a paid vacation. Back in Halo, Georgia, a Hatfield-McCoy-style standoff builds, forcing Luke and Cherry to keep their relationship secret. She’s ready for a weekend away, hobnobbing with the rich and famous of hunting.

But as the Georgia sunshine turns to bleak December rain, Cherry’s R&R goes MIA when she finds a body. While the police believe the town drunk took an accidental spill, Cherry has her doubts, particularly when a series of malicious pranks are targeted at the rifle toting contestants and she’s warned off investigating. With loyal companions at her side — sort-of-ex-husband Todd and a championship bayer named Buckshot— Cherry tracks suspects through a forest of pitfalls and perils. And all the while, a killer’s stalking the hunt party with Cherry and the contestants in their crosshairs.
