    I just finished your book “The Gathering Murders”, outstanding…I ordered two more of your books as I was so impressed with your setting, characters, storyline and mostly, your writing. I’m in Mexico on holiday and when I tried to leave comments on Amazon…it was all in Spanish! I’ll comment, very favorably of course, to Amazon when I return home. Please keep writing!

  2. Thank you so much! I am pleased that you enjoyed the novel. I am busy writing another at this moment!


  3. Just finished “Floatsam & Jetsam” and loved it. Just when I think they can’t get any better, the next one does!!

  4. You are too kind! I hope you enjoy the next. And if so, perhaps the one after – which I am working on right now!


  5. I have just finished The Gathering and enjoyed it very much. I have to thank you also for solving a 30+ year mystery for my sister and me in this book. Our great grandparents were from Scotland and immigrated to Vermont, USA. Throughout our childhood, living in Connecticut, we were treated to what our grandfather called “buttries”. These wonderful treats were brought to us from family visiting from Vermont. Beginning as young women and up to last evening, we searched high and low for these wonderful treats. Every baker in Vermont we visited looked at us as if we had 3 heads when we asked if they made “buttries”. Now, after all these years, you have given us the answer to our long quest! The Aberdeen Buttery! A silly misunderstanding of pronunciation! I called my sister immediately and we laughed ourselves to tears! Thank you so very much for this added bonus to your wonderful writing! You have a fan for life!


    1. Kim, that made me chuckle. How very kind of you to write. I have always loved butteries and, whenever I go home I seek them out. Sometimes I also make them! They are quite labour-intensive, but taste superb. Not great for cholesterol, though. Your grandfather’s pronunciation was perfect. Indeed, you have given me the idea for a fresh post on the blog, which I’ll get done as soon as I can.
