  1. I’m lining up author interviews for February for my series called Mondays Are Murder. Would you be interested in participating?

    • Love to! I’ll be in touch later via your website. BTW I love Hawaii & look forward to reading your novel. I have spent many happy vacations over the past 30 years at the Ilikai condos.

  2. Ruth — I am so glad you are following your passion — it is very important to do this and not let life pass us by. You have a special gift and it is to be treasured — Congratulations!!

    Wishing you much pleasure and satisfaction in you new “full time” career!


  3. As a professional driver, I find good reading a must while out there, so I was elated to find your book, Ice on the Grapevine. I so enjoyed it and even wrote a review for it. I hope the review does the work justice.

    Thanks again

    • Thank you very much! Judging by your review, you’re no slouch as a writer, either. I hope you don’t mind if I post a link to your review. (Let me know if you do.) Best of luck with your own writing.

  4. Recently downloaded to my e-book “Slow Curve on the Coquihalla” from Amazon while vacationing in Arizona. As a resident of Edmonton who is quite familiar with Western Canada, I was pleased to see a tale which covers this area. Having visited the region from Kamloops to Hope and Merritt to Kelowna, this story is almost about my back yard. Furthermore, you have created here a real page turner.

  5. I have just finished two of your books and they are fantastic. I can’t wait to start the next one. Great writing. Also being set in Canada is fab my wife and I just love Canada. We are in the UK.

  6. Looking forward to the next one.

  7. Busy working my way through all four of the Hunter Rayne Highway books – I’m reading Sea to Sky right now. I love to find books located in my own backyard of BC and so rich in location detail. Congrats on doing such a great job of doling out the back story of so many of your interesting characters. I just want more. Keep them coming.

    • Thank you very much, Francis. It made my day to hear from you! I’m so glad you are enjoying the series. I’m working on another set mostly in BC which I hope will be ready by early next year.
