I write suspense novels.

 I advocate for animals.

These tend to overlap.

​​SCRATCH LINE:  No one believes that a crime ring has infiltrated the local animal shelter—Except Sarah, a wealthy suburbanite volunteer, and Darryl, an ex-gang member working at the shelter. They are set on exposing it...but soon find themselves in the crosshairs of something even more deadly. Despite coming from opposite sides of the "tracks," they find they have more in common than they first thought.
