My book!

My first murder mystery, called Blood on a Sugar-Sand Beach, is now available on Amazon/Kindle as an ebook. This is a mystery written in the "cozy" style, and takes place in Naples, Florida, in the mid-1960s.

Here's the link if you want to buy it:

I grew up in Naples and worked on the old Naples Star weekly newspaper there while in high school and college. So some incidents in the book are loosely based on real events, but I played around with them, and with the people in the book, and mixed it all up for the sake of the story.

If you grew up or wintered in Naples back in the olden days, you should get a kick out of this mystery. I tried to keep it fast-moving and funny, and the ending should come as a surprise. Just remember, please, that it is fiction, not an actual history of Naples.

Those of us who lived in Naples back in the old days probably never realized then how lucky we were to live in such a beautiful town filled with so many interesting people. We realize it now, though, and luckily many of us are still in touch, thanks to the internet! All of us are surprised at how large Naples has become. I'm pleased that so much of the "Old Naples" remains.

So get this book on your Kindle, or on the Kindle app on your computer or iPad, and enjoy it!
