My Regency mystery series features a trio of crime-solving friends: a Bow Street Runner, an unconventional lady, and a melancholic barrister. On a Desert Shore is the fourth title in the series following The Rose in the Wheel, Blood for Blood, and Die I Will Not. After earning an MA in literature, I became a high school English teacher and writer. I live in Los Angeles with my husband, a former English major, who works on The Big Bang Theory. Our only child Miranda, named after one of Shakespeare's most idealistic heroines, carried on the family tradition by majoring in English and theater studies.
