Personal Note from the Author:
I started this mystery series when my job required traveling around New Mexico. Mysteries and quirky characters floated to the surface. In Dulce, New Mexico, I felt the presence of spirits, hidden in the hills, on every visit. Truly, I was disturbed. My own mother died when I was 13, and I spend most of my life chasing her, so, in this cozy mystery series, I created the woman sleuth, Cinnamon, who chases her momma while she solves crime stories in picturesque locations in the Land of Enchantment.

Paris, France, is known as the City of Lights, a metropolis renowned for romance and beauty. Beneath the bustling streets and cafés, however, exists The Catacombs, a labyrinth of crumbling tunnels filled with six million dead.
When a video camera containing mysterious footage is discovered deep within their depths, a group of friends venture into the tunnels to investigate. But what starts out as a lighthearted adventure takes a turn for the worse when they reach their destination—and stumble upon the evil lurking there.
Interview with the Author
Q – So, who are your favorite authors and why?
A – I grew up reading all the big names in horror like Stephen King and Dean Koontz and James Herbert and Clive Barker. I’ve also always enjoyed Bentley Little and Richard Laymon. Recently I’m getting into some new names like Bobby Adair and Joe Hill and Blake Crouch.
Why do I like them? The answer to that is pretty simple. They write fantastic horror stories that check all the boxes: realistic characters, real chills, lurking dread, danger, lightning-fast pacing, plots full of twists and turns. And they also experiment with other genres, mixing horror with sci fi, psychological suspense, crime thrillers, and so forth.
Q – What other books do you have available?
A – I started out writing in the suspense genre with White Lies. Then I moved on to action/adventure with The Taste of Fear. However, now I am firmly in the horror game. They are as follows in order of publication:
– White Lies
– The Taste of Fear
– Suicide Forest
– Black Canyon
– The Catacombs
– Helltown (coming soon)
Q – So, why should readers give these books a try?
A – Because they are fast and fun and include quite a few surprises and scares (and the occasional touch of humor). They have hit the top ten bestsellers list in Kindle’s Suspense/Thriller/Horror categories, and they have been been featured in Amazon’s Thrillers 100 Must Reads list.
