Ever had a boss you’d happily kill?
Somebody beat her to it.
Corporate climber, Kadence MacBride, is smashing the glass ceiling with her size ten pumps, or so she thinks. Not only does she get passed over, her promotion goes to her idiot employee, and he becomes her new boss.
Worst day ever, or so she thinks. Worst doesn’t have a floor, and idiots tend to get themselves killed.
Losing a promotion–bad
Becoming a prime murder suspect–CATASTROPHIC
Police Captain Cooper has hit his own glass ceiling. Solving this case quickly will break him through it, so Cooper doesn’t care what’s true. Since Kadence makes the easiest target, he’s gunning for her.
Long buried secrets from the Civil Rights era seek vengeance from the grave. Kadence has her own secrets to keep.
There are some things you don’t delegate. Adding amateur sleuth to her resume, Kadence sets out to find the real killer. If she fails, she’ll trade her red power suit for an orange jumpsuit.

Unlike some, I didn’t start out to write a novel. I viewed learning fiction techniques as a means to improve my non-fiction writing. To that end, I took an eight-week class on how to write a novel.
Our assignment was to write the first chapter of our book. I volunteered to read mine aloud. After I finished, the class applauded.
“That’s really good,” my teacher said. “What happens next?”
I reminded her that she’d asked us to write the first chapter, not what happened next, so I had no idea. She pushed me to continue the story, and by the end of the class, I wanted to know what happened next. That quest, to tell my character’s stories, to give them a voice, to learn what happens next, drives me as a writer.
Since then, I’ve sold 15 short stories and written three novels. The first two books in the Kadence MacBride Mysteries: Death of an Idiot Boss and Death of an Island Tart, and Build a Mate, the first Holiday with Love Novella are available on Amazon. The One, the second Holiday with Love will be published later this year.
As a work in progress, Death of an Idiot Boss placed second in the Daphne Du Maurier Award of Excellence for Unpublished Romantic Mystery/Suspense. Death of an Island Tart was a semi-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, second place for the Daphne Du Maurier Award for Unpublished Romantic Mystery/Suspense and won the Go On Girl Unpublished Writer Award. I’ve also been awarded residencies with the Great River Writers Retreat and Writers in the Heartland in addition to winning an Illinois Individual Artists Professional Development Grant for Literature.
It is my sincere hope that you enjoy reading my books as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them.
