“Jeff found scuff marks on the windowsill.”

“Yes, from your shoes.”

“I wasn’t wearing shoes.”

“You weren’t?”

Hidden Gem: the Secret of St. Augustine--Cover Reveal!

Hidden Gem Cover Reveal!

My new creation, Hidden Gem: the Secret of St. Augustine, is only awaiting a release date from the fabulous Wild Rose Press. To get you salivating, here’s the fabulous cover from Tina Stout:


This is the story:

Barnaby and Philo’s story begins with very bad chili and a dead body.

Barnaby is in St. Augustine, Florida, to teach a college seminar, and plans to use The Secret—a treasure hunt book—as a framework for his class. He enlists Philo Brice, owner of an antique map store, to aid him in seeking clues in the historic sites of the ancient city.

Together they face murderers, thieves, thugs, and fanatics, heightening their already strong attraction to each other. Can they solve the puzzle and unearth the treasure before the villains do? Philo and Barnaby pursue several twisting paths and false leads before arriving at a startling conclusion.

I had a fabulous time at Books on the Beach this past weekend. Held at the Hilton on Clearwater Beach, hundred of authors and readers gathered for fun-packed days of panels, looking at books, talking shop, and talking a lot. Thanks to the wonder organizers Sheri Lyn, Jennifer Wedmore and Cassidy O'Connor and their fabulous crew of volunteers!

Here's a photo of me with Minion the Monkey:
