When driving across the Rudy Inlet Bridge in Virginia Beach, I wondered what would happened to a vehicle if it went over the side. Would it sink? Float? Could someone push a car off the bridge on purpose? Could a barge enter the inlet and pull a vehicle out? Check out “Fishing for Murder” to uncover the mystery.
All I had to do to gain inspiration for my short story was to walk outside. I love living in the great Northwest with its pristine forests, clear, fast-running rivers and, okay, let's be honest here, rain! Of course, the rain brings forth its own bounty. Our rivers are famous for its prized salmon and steelhead trout, the wily feisty fish that can out-snooker most fishermen.
My husband and I have had a family fishing competition going on since we've been married. I am still winning. When we started our fishing derby, we cleared the slate, so to speak. He grew up in the Northeast and spent every summer on Cape Cod, so it really wouldn't have been fair to do otherwise. So this story is also born of this family tradition. This is just a little slice of domesticity.
Who would dare to take that chance?
Robin must put on her thinking cap to solve this crime by quitting time, and net herself a thief.

After two decades of watching many people sacrifice their personal lives and sometimes their sanity at fast-paced software companies, only to be cast aside the instant something goes wrong, I wrote "Inside Job." Many software technologists are book-smart, or code-savvy, but they’re not emotionally wise enough to handle the challenges of inventing an industry from the ground up. This is the story of one woman who plays a vengeful game with her CEO, a man who carries blame for much more than her barren personal life.
