Welcome Friends,

I invite you to travel with me to Winnebago County, Minnesota and follow the challenging cases Sergeant Corinne “Corky” Aleckson and Detective Elton “Smoke” Dawes are assigned. And where regular people find themselves in circumstances that are anything but ordinary in the medium-boiled Winnebago County Mystery series.

Or you might like a  cozier mystery adventure? Brooks Landing, Minnesota is the setting for the Snow Globe Shop Mysteries where you’ll get to know Curio Finds manager, Camryn Brooks, and other intriguing and quirky characters I think you’ll enjoy.
