Help me celebrate Wyoming's unique spirit, along with the courageous people who call this state home, by coming to visit the state where babbling brooks flow through tall peaks and rivers rush through vast canyons. 

If you are unable to visit, I promise to guide you through the pages of my books where you will be able to "see" Wyoming's beauty and meet unique characters.  

As an author based in Cheyenne, I will do my best to take you on a grand adventure!

    When life gets crazy for Fran Lightfoot, she moves home to the small town of Moose Creek, Wyoming, teenage daughter in tow. It sounds good: Hometown. Family. A fresh future.

  Fran and her sister Lucy open a small business, The Saucy Lucy Café, in an old Victorian home they have inherited. The soups, stews, breads, and muffins they serve offer townspeople hearty, home-cooked meals.

  Detective Gabe Stevenson is called in from a larger, neighboring city to assist Moose Creek's Sheriff Otis Parnell with the investigation. Fran and Lucy develop theories about who the culprit may be, however, Gabe and Otis urge the sisters not to get involved.

  At first, the police suspect Fran of Henry's murder, although she insists that she had nothing to do with it. When someone begins to threaten Fran's life, she and Lucy are determined to help law enforcement bring the murderer to justice.

  Even if it means putting themselves in harm's way.  

  Awesome! Can't wait to read the rest of the series!!

  This is a wonderful mystery with lots of laugh-out-loud moments, clever dialogue and characters to die for! Can these unlikely sister sleuths solve the crimes and save the cafe? You could well imagine this book as a movie. It's a delightful read that should not be missed.
