She is currently employed as the office manager of a small accounting firm, dividing her time between tax returns and murder.She has also written the ebooks, ''Test Scores'' - the latest in her Kyle Shannon Mystery series, ''Chicago Dawn'', ''Life Everlasting'' and ''Pills, Party and a Prom Date.'' The second edition of her non-fiction book, ''Dollars and Sense for Writers,'' is in an eformat as well.
