What’s next? That’s a question I always ask myself when I finish a book and it’s on its way to publication. What are my choices? Cruise to Tahiti? A week in Paris? Learn to speak Mandarin? Attend Santa Anita races? Join a Bobby Shew fan club?


Most fulfilling for me is the thought of writing another mystery novel for my readers. DAIQUIRI DOCK MURDER is the sixth book in my Key West Mystery Series.

Maybe it’s time to start a new series, and I have some ideas for the new book. Do you have any ideas?

Usually a book’s title is the last thing I write, but this time the title has jumped to the front of my thinking.


Of course that title may change, but that’s it for starters.

Hope to see you reading another of my titles in the not-so-far future.

Thank you for visiting my website. Please read on and come back soon.

Mini Synopsis:

Newspaper columnist and hotel owner Rafa Blue hides her sordid Key West past from her lover Kane Riley. But when she finds her friend Diego Casterano murdered, she investigates his death, facing Diego’s angry son, a long-ago enemy’s gun – and Kane.

The idea for this book came to me in bits and parts over several months and years as I saw Private ownership of the Key West Bite change to county ownership.
