About the author

I was born in Salina, Kansas, and attended school there and in Evergreen, Colorado. I was graduated from the University of Denver. My background is in education and business. Now living in Florida, I devote full-time to my compulsion to dig into the souls and lives of fictional characters.

We all like stories. I believe the shortest distance between two people is a good story. When I think of mystery writing, I picture children sitting around in the dark telling ghost stories.   In my stories I try not to have one damn thing after another, but rather one damn thing because of another.  And I try to remember that the difference between real life and fiction is that fiction has to make sense. I hope you enjoy the adventures of Sandy Reid.
