Author has written 6 stories for Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew.

I like mysteries and writing them. I currently completed Missing in Action, Ocean of Deceit, Out of Tune, and Haunting Memories. I'll be updating my story every week, so come back in a week and you'll see a new chapter.

Also, I don't intend to make my story romantic in any way, so don't expect me to write a romance novel. I just write the good old-fashioned mystery.

Title finished: Missing in Action, Ocean of Deceit, Out of Tune, Haunting Memories

Title in progress: Broken Promises (almost finished, though!)

I like drawing, too, and illustrated the covers for these three stories.

I am a senior in high school and a mystery fan. I read many mysteries and like books by John Dickson Carr. My favorite is The Hollow Man, a.k.a. The Three Coffins. I like mysteries involving impossible crimes and locked rooms.
