I’m so excited to share with you that FINAL DRAFT: An Olivia Lively Mystery will be published by Encircle Publications in March 2023. I can’t wait for you to meet Liv and her friends (and a few enemies ‘cuz, mystery, right?) as they learn, laugh, and love in the arty, coastal city of Portland, Maine. 

Liv’s quite a character, and I had so much fun creating her. She’s flawed. She makes mistakes in her relationships. She’s running her own business, Lively Investigations, and succeeding at it. She’s on point when it comes to fashion. In fact, I wish I had her closet. And her fabulous apartment overlooking the city. 

I can’t wait for you to meet her! 

Happiness: Books to read, coffee to drink, stories to write.
