You can’t fight city hall… the house always wins…

Maybe not?

Let’s face it, the letter of the law isn’t always right and deep pockets can buy a congressman or ten. The world isn’t fair.

It takes a rebel to do the right thing despite the rules of the world.

Whether it’s an amateur sleuth solving crime in cozy mysteries or a reformed con men catching the worst of the worst while helping those who the system fails…it’s a lot faster and more fun to work outside the rules.

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I heard a few stories about Al Capone. They were good ones, believe it or not…like the soup kitchens he opened when the depression hit. Do you think those hungry people cared if the food was paid for with profits from illegal liquor? I don’t.

Even my great-grandmother enjoyed a shot of whiskey every night before bed.
Do you think she stopped drinking during prohibition? Me either…

Lucky for me, I can break all the rules in my stories. I can kill off the bad guys, or just take all their money and toss them in jail. My characters can help those in need. They aren’t perfect, but they get it right.

Writing contemporary romantic suspense and cozy mysteries is my real love. Playing with the motives and passions of people in life or death situations is the ultimate fun for me…and if love is on the line as well, it just doesn’t get any better!

Join me on an adventure or ten between the lines the legal system so arbitrarily draws. Be prepared to fall for con men, reformed thieves, former feds, and shameless rebels…They do what the law can’t or won’t.

Tell the truth: a guy who breaks the rules is really hot!

Oh…About Me?

I have lived in the Chicagoland area all my life, still do.

No, I’m not connected—to the legal system or anything else.

So cliché, but I do love fedoras and cats!

I own a gun…and yes, I can shoot it :)

I love Ocean’s Eleven, Leverage, Monk, Psyche, The Blacklist, and so on…all the rebels/misfits in all varieties.

I write stories with modern day Robin Hoods, crime stoppers, and Godfathers you can trust to get you justice!
