Let’s discover together the first book of her mystery and suspense series set on Gull Island, First Case (Writers Retreat Southern Seashore Mystery Book 1), published in May 2017.


The fact that Katrina Pomeroy had been murdered was in and of itself a newsworthy event. The fact that she had been murdered on Friday October 13th exactly eleven years after she’d been one of five teenagers to survive the Friday The 13th Massacre, made her passing worthy of notice by the national news agencies Jillian Hanford used to work for. When an old editor of Jillian’s offered her the chance to write a human interest piece about Katrina’s life and subsequent death, she jumped at the chance to re-launch her currently defunct career. Of course in order to make the sort of impact she was after, she’d not only need to write about Katrina’s unusual life, but she’d need to answer the question of who was responsible for her death. She knew she’d need help so she decided to enlist the help of the five writers currently living at the writer’s retreat on Gull Island. Jillian would soon discover a decade old secret covering a shocking truth that was better left unrevealed.
