Praise for The Consort Conspiracy...

"Loved the characters in this fascinating story of murder and intrigue that will grab the reader and not let go until The End."

-  By Patricia Bradley, author The Logan Point series and Delayed Justice, a Memphis coldcase novel, winner of 2012 Daphne du Maurier Award

For almost two hundred years an ancient cemetery deep in the lowlands of Georgia has protected the identity of an infamous, brutal murderer, whose act of betrayal changed the course of the town’s history and catapulted the family's descendants into the nation's highest political office.

Thirty-one-year-old KATE COVINGTON, downsized from her corporate position and desperate for work, calls in her last favor to land a film documentary job designed to boost the American president's ratings and travels to his family home in Midway. But her research unearths clues in the ancient cemetery that prove his entire political career rests on two hundred years of murder and betrayal. With this knowledge, Kate must fight for her life.

AND...Coming May 2020!

On the eve of a historical G7 summit, event coordinator Mattie Maguire discovers that the small North Carolina town of Sinclair Station is more than a picturesque setting. The century-old estate, Clairmont Place, where the summit is to be held is also the center of a family mystery, political machinations, and a series of death threats—including to Mattie’s own beloved grandparents.


As Mattie struggles to find the solutions that will protect her family, the estate owners, and the summit itself, she uncovers secrets that endanger her own life as well as that of the estate’s true owner—a man who has been hidden since his father was killed. Is his return to Clairmont Place the ultimate solution to all the troubles—or will it put his life in danger as well?
