Editorial Review:
"Inappropriate is a wonderful whodunit, with one of the greatest opening lines ever-"I hate discovering dead bodies." A body washes ashore and immediately we're thrown into the protagonists internal monologue full of sex, frustration, longing, mother issues and career angst. So much kaos too little time. The next day she and a group of mystery writers leave on a writing vacation/workshop with the wife of a noted televangelist on his train going from crusade to crusade. This set up is SO good, I can't wait to see what will happen next. The writing is brilliant. Equal parts quality storytelling in a classic neurotic smart ass voice. This excerpt is brilliantly done and I've reserved a place on my shelf for the finished product."

I am stunned to learn that my manuscript, Inappropriate, has made it to the quaterfinal round in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest! Out of 10,000 entries, it is one of only eighteen romances that made the cut to 500, which is the top 5%. Publisher's Weekly is now reviewing the manuscripts and Penguin will select 100 from thier recommendations for the next round. In the meantime, an Excerpt is available for FREE download. Please read it :)
