Mystery Author: Strong Women, Great Stories

My photo

I write three series: The Loser Mysteries, The Dead Detective Mysteries & the Simon & Elizabeth (Tudor) Mysteries as well as stand-alones that offer readers "Strong Women, Great Stories."
These days I also answer to Maggie Pill, who writes a cozy sleuth series. Maggie is a lot like Peg, just younger, cooler, and funnier.

The Loser Mysteries

Loser is like no character you've met before: homeless, dirty, and mostly silent. Join her as she fights her way back from the dark places she's been. Find out why she fell into despair. See if she can learn to cope again, to sleep in a bed, meet someone's gaze, and possibly accept there's something worthwhile left in her life.

Killing Silence (Book #1)

Loser sleeps in alleys, washes up in gas station rest rooms, and eats when she can. Lost in her own misery, she barely notices the hardships of life. 
When a child captures her attention and that child's welfare is in doubt, Loser calls on long-forgotten resources to help. Can someone who lives among the lost become a rescuer, or will her demons--and a vicious murderer--defeat her?


Killing Memories (Book #2)
Ebook: Print 
  Upset by the attention surrounding her as "The Homeless Hero," Loser escapes Richmond and returns to her childhood home. She plans on a quiet life in the mountains of West Virginia, but circumstances change. A former foster sister arrives on her doorstep with her teenage son, pleading for shelter. 
When the woman disappears, Loser is left with a boy who doesn't want to believe his mother abandoned him and a mystery that will lead her into danger. As with most things in life, change brings opportunity. Loser forms new relationships that confirm she can return to full participation in life--if she lives through present dangers.

Killing Despair (Book #3)
Print  Kindle
 When two disappearances in Richmond seem related to crimes the police laid at her door, Loser returns, determined to find out what happened the night her world fell apart. Once there, she again finds herself the main suspect in a murder. 
To escape arrest she fades into Richmond's underworld, taking on her familiar Loser persona. She's protected by old friends, but it's soon clear she needs more help than they're able to give. Should she ask Alex to come to her aid, or will she simply be putting him in danger too?
