A phone call at two a.m. is never good news. But there’s bad
news and then there’s strange news. Lindsay’s two a.m. call is a plea for help.
There’s a woman in Fred’s closet and he can’t get her out.
Their new neighbor, Sophie Fleming, has taken up sleepwalking,
straight into Fred’s house and his bedroom closet. She’s having nightmares
about the brutal stabbing of a little girl named Carolyn. But Carolyn was her
imaginary childhood friend.
Lindsay, Fred, Trent, Paula and Henry must solve a
twenty-year old murder with no bodies, no DNA and no proof the victims ever
How can someone who never lived be murdered? Why is Sophie
seeing it happen in Fred's bedroom? Why is she hiding in his closet? Will his
clothes even fit her?
I grew up in a small rural town in southeastern Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories—ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.
For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.
Besides writing, my interests are reading, eating chocolate and riding my Harley.
I have two ongoing mystery series, Death by Chocolate (Death by Chocolate; Murder, Lies and Chocolate; and The Great Chocolate Scam, and Chocolate Mousse Attack) and Charley’s Ghost (The Ex Who Wouldn’t Die, The Ex Who Glowed in the Dark and The Ex Who Conned a Psychic).
I also sold fifteen romance novels ranging from comedy to dark suspense under the names Sally Carleen, Sally Steward and Sara Garrett. For those novels, I won several awards including National Readers' Choice, Romantic Times Best Silhouette Romance and two Rita finalist slots. Most of the Silhouettes are available as e-books, and I have e-pubbed six of the out-of-print single titles.
Contact information is available on my website. I love to talk to readers! And writers. And riders. And computer programmers. And teachers. And gardeners. And dogs. And puppets and poets and pirates and pawns and kings. Okay, I just plain love to talk!
