The launch of Chloe 11, The Weaver's Revenge, is here!
I invite you to join me for the virtual launch party this Wednesday, May 12, at 7 PM US Central time. It will be hosted by Mystery to Me, my local indie bookstore. 

I'll show slides of some of the people, places, and the past that inspired me to write the story. I'll also sign and personalize books for anyone who orders one from Mystery To Me

 With Gratitude
When my former publisher closed, I wasn't sure what the future held for the 10 book Chloe Ellefson series. All I knew was that I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Chloe and Roelke.
Thanks to encouragement from readers like you, I took a chance and began working on Chloe 11.  
My ideas notebook for the story that became The Weaver's Revenge.
I'm very grateful for your patience as I transition the series to HenschelHaus Press. A reader's recent note said simply,  
"I love this series and want more."  
I'm so happy to get The Weaver's Revenge into your hands!
 Warm Regards,
