About this ebook

Rick's car blows
up in his driveway.
is left with an image of Rick's green SUV flying around the neighborhood along
with pieces of Rick—a blue contact lens in Mrs. Hawkins' driveway, a perfectly
creased trouser leg hanging on the street sign, a vertebra on the immaculate


Since their
divorce wasn't final and Rick has no family, Lindsay assumes she is his only
heir. Then Bryan Kollar, local celebrity bodybuilder and owner of the chain of
gyms, Body by Bryan, comes into Death by Chocolate and asks to buy back the
flour mill built by his great-grandfather and purchased by Rick before his
death. Lindsay readily agrees that, as soon as she gets title, she'll return it
to him.


But before his
estate is settled, Rick has more relatives than a lottery winner.


What was Rick
planning to do with the old flour mill? Why does Bryan want it back? He doesn't
even eat refined flour!


Is the obnoxious
Rickie Jr. really Rick's son? Why is the woman who claims to be Rick's mother
so certain the child is not her grandson? Are these people really related to
Rick, or was he actually an alien stranded on earth when the mother ship left
without him?


Come for the
Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars, stay for the murder, mayhem and fun!

Crying Broken
October 18, 2021
too absolutely realistic for comfort! especially if you grew up in a small, rural town, where everyone knew everyone else! And by the time you realized your husband was making time, it was his 3rd or 4th time! yet *I* was the one being accused of having numerous affairs! unfortunately, everyone on his hockey team and league was bed hopping, as were "the guys" up at the fire hall, in other words everyone we knew, except those who dropped out of the social scene.. not a single successful marriage amongst them! seems that, despite my husband's allegations to the contrary, I was the only one out of the 16 couples who actually believed in and followed those marriage vows!🤯🙄🤷‍♀️😱💝💔 when my husband stooped to questioning the paternity of our daughters, I invited him to have them each tested(at his own cost of course, that seemed to take the wind out of his sails, the subject was dropped and never arose again...🤔😱😶just another ruse to get out of paying child support...? *methinkso!* it wasn't the first, nor last, all dropped after a suggestion of him paying for continuation.😲🤷‍♀️and immediate silence was heard! I know what *my* lawyers fees amounted to..given that his first 3 lawyers fired him for nonpayment I shudder to think what *his* eventual total was! certainly enough between the two of us to have given our children VERY fancy educationsset them up for life..., with nary a student loan left for them to carry afterwards...🤯😎🥺 ah, but we were young and stupid, full.of pride, unable to just back down and take the long view...nor pray for a stray meteor...😘😲🤷‍♀️

About the author

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!
