I am the author of ten mystery novels set in New Orleans: BOURBON STREET BLUES, JACKSON SQUARE JAZZ, MURDER IN THE RUE DAUPHINE, MURDER IN THE RUE ST. ANN , MARDI GRAS MAMBO, MURDER IN THE RUE CHARTRES, MURDER IN THE RUE URSULINES, VIEUX CARRE VOODOO, and WHO DAT WHODUNNIT, which will be released in May 2011. I have also written two young adult novels, SORCERESS and SLEEPING ANGEL, forthcoming in March 2011. I have published over fifty short stories, in addition to countless articles, columns and book reviews. I also work as an editor for the Liberty Editions line for Bold Strokes Books. I have also published numerous short stories, novels and anthologies under a variety of pseudonyms. I live in New Orleans, and absolutely love the city and everything about it--even the things that annoy me from time to time.
