Coming in August 13th!

A new chapter in Agnes Barton’s life as she embarks on a new journey into the paranormal in the first book of her paranormal mystery series.









Susan Coils has once again proved that she’s tops when it comes to vector covers. Haunted Jinks is 90% finished and is a much different mystery, but one I think you’ll love. Ever since Agnes’ car accident, things have changed drastically for her. After she wakes up in the hospital not only is her son Stuart there, who she hasn’t seen in years, but a ghostly apparition!

Instead of getting ready for the looney bin, Agnes and Eleanor help ready the Butler Mansion for a grand opening as a bed and breakfast on Halloween, except they find the body of Catherine Clark. It’s game on as usual for Agnes, except she now has a new partner, one who has remained silent and is well—a ghost.

Agnes now struggles to keep her wits, keeping her ghostly companion a secret from Eleanor, not such an easy feat since Eleanor is sharp as a tac. Not only that, but where has Stuart been all of these years and what is he up to? Will Agnes be able to unravel what’s proven to be the most unusual case of her career, or will she be faced with an uncertain future as new resident at the looney bin?

Award winning author Doug Allyn invited me to co-host a writer’s round table at the Hoyt Library in Saginaw, Michigan on Saturday, April 12th. I was amazed at how many people showed up.

The Hoyt Library in Saginaw, Michigan, or more notably called, the castle library.


A great time was had by all and I finished up the day by donating my Agnes Barton series books to the library. I can’t thank Doug Allyn enough for inviting me take part in this, and it goes to show you that both traditionally published and independent authors can share the same stage.

For the first time I met some readers at my very first book signing at Diversions Tea House in East Tawas, Michigan. I braved the cooler temperatures and headed north.


Madison and fan

Daniel told me that he has read all of my books. I thought that was great! He brought his sister with him since his wife was unable to attend.
Daniel W. Hanninen’s review:
“I have just finished reading “Treasure in Tawas”. It is the last in a series of books, 5 total, that are set in the Tawas area. If you like funny ‘who done its’, this is the series for you. It is amazing how the two older lady private eyes just barely escape trouble, serious injury, and even death while they are investigating criminal activities in their small town area. This series is well written and a great read. I have enjoyed all of the books in this series and a few more by this Author.”


The manager of Diversions couldn’t have been nicer, and he treated my daughter and I to a chi tea latte. Yummy! His mother also attended.

I love meeting new people who never heard about me. This family did their impression of pirates! She also brought her mother who also bought a book.

All in all, I had a great time and stayed over in East Tawas with a Bayside room, overlooking the still quite frozen Lake Huron.


Yes, that’s a truck on the ice and a ice shanty! Strange how in some spot you could see the water and in other not!
