Hi and welcome to my website.
Starting with a pad of paper, then moving to a plastic orange Smith Corona typewriter, and now to my trusty laptop, I have always enjoyed the puzzle of finding the right word, phrase or plot twist. So far, my published works are both non-fiction and fiction.
My legal mystery, Deadly Sacrifices, set in my Boston hometown, won a 2012 Royal Palm Literary Award (unpublished - mystery) from the Florida Writers Association. My underwater fantasy novel, Bridles of Poseidon, was selected as a finalist in unpublished fantasy in 2012, too. Both are on Amazon.com.
I live and teach in Florida--but would love to earn my keep someday as a full-time author. Thanks for taking a peek at my author page.
Please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You always remember your first time....
Monty's first happened in St. Stephen’s church, directly beneath a statue of the Virgin Mary, right after morning mass. A local soccer mom is bludgeoned to death in her suburban parish chapel outside of Boston. In her first homicide case, prosecutor Marguerite “Monty” Montez endangers her life digging up evidence that shows police nabbed the wrong man. Moonlighting as a Portuguese fados (blues) singer, Monty’s investigation also uncovers disturbing memories and fresh leads in an unsolved murder of her childhood friend in her close-knit Portuguese community. Her dauntless search for the real killer is a wild thrill ride into a dangerous world of lethal secrets. Action, humor and romance collide in this first book in a new Marguerite Montez mystery series.

Bridles of Poseidon, The Last Emissary Series, Book 1
Aquan, a fearless Triton, uses her unique power to transform into real and mythical sea creatures to police the boundaries of land and sea from rebel forces. When her fellow Tritons are savagely massacred on the eve of her first mating season, Aquan reluctantly teams up with Key West dive boat captain, Dave Cutter and marine biologist, Jen Ortiz, in a world-wide hunt across the lost sister cities of Atlantis.
In Bridles of Poseidon, Aquan must not only unlock her true power, but confront disturbing revelations about the deaths of her parents and dangerous political intrigue in her once-peaceful society at Rapture's End. Ultimately, this young Triton faces a terrible choice between preventing another Great Deluge or destroying the future survival of her own underwater community, now torn apart by discord and treachery.
