About the Book

Spirit of Murder is set in the twenty-first century and is about Stella Blake, a tall slender kick-ass ex-lieutenant of homicide, having to face the haunting truth about her heritage, her lineage, the three parallel worlds. This truth pops up and causes her to resign from the force. Now a private investigator, working alone, Stella still solves crimes while trapped into keeping the family secret from the rest of the world. A friend calls Stella when a dead body turns up in her home. There she faces her successor and finds herself strangely drawn to him. The two battle for control of the murder case and eventually their attraction to each other. Stella’s world is once again rocked when she finds out this man also has a secret linked with hers. Her internal strength and determination gets her through and allows her powers to develop and grow. In the end she can no longer fight the fact that she and her family have a special brand of magic flowing through their veins. Stella learns to use the family secret to her advantage in her career in solving crimes. But at times her temper puts her at risk.

About the Author

Born in a small town to a, shall we say, a very gifted family, I have enjoyed creating stories filled with mystery and magic for my family’s pleasure. They see themselves in the characters I create. Now that I am retired and my children are all grown with families of their own, I have the time to indulge in my passion. My mind is always busy solving mysteries, visiting strange places, and creating adventures. Before my husband passed away, he kept trying to get me to publish my stories. I just laughed it off and told him I write for the sheer pleasure it gives me. Now that he is gone, I’ve decided to fulfill his wish, because it meant so much to him. I hope you enjoy the adventures in my books as much as I did writing them. And maybe a little magic will seep into your life too.
