Hello and thanks for visiting!
Do you love cats, mysteries and delicious baking? Olde England, magic and gorgeous chocolates? Then this is the place for you!
I write cozy mysteries set in the beautiful English Cotswolds and the historic city of Oxford, filled with humour, quirky characters, quaint village settings… and of course, a clever puzzle mystery for you to sink your teeth into!
BEWITCHED BY CHOCOLATE Mysteries

Add some paranormal hijinks, a cute cat, and a fun, relatable heroine, and you have a book that's impossible to put down."
