I write stories of mystery, suspense, and light romance set in small port towns of the Pacific Northwest. I love to "bend" reality...just a bit. You won't find vampires and werewolves in my novels, but you may run across a couple of ghosts who act suspiciously like humans. More than likely, though, the ghosts' antics are more humorous than scary.
