A New Project

I have always loved mystery stories. Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, Trixie Belden, Brains Benton and Jimmy Carson, and the Three Investigators, were welcomed guests in my home when I was growing up. In fact, I still have many of my original copies of these books, yellowed with age, well-worn, but thoroughly enjoyed. Every so often I will pull one out and read it again, re-experiencing the pleasure of joining these sleuths in their many adventures.

Because of my love for mysteries, it has always been a goal to write my own series. I have written several adventures, with the hopes of getting them published, but try as I might, publishers were just not interested. So I decided to try to publish them on my own. It was a lot of hard work, getting the stories fine-tuned, and then working on the formatting requirements, cover, etc. But I am pleased to say that my first mystery story, The Mystery of El Rancho, is now available.

The story is the first in the series of the Oak Tree Detectives, best friends Ruth Tapia, Victoria Reyes, and Solana Flores, who start their own detective agency in their small town in Southern California. I’m now working on book two, The Stone Heart Mystery. Hope you’ll have as much fun reading as I did writing!
