Welcome and let me introduce myself to you!

Hi welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping in!

I'm a writer here in Alexandria VA and have published my first novel, The Bloody Mary Club. The action is set in Old Town, Alexandria Virginia.

Here's what it's about:

An all women investment club meets in historic Old Town, Alexandria, in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol. The friends, caught up in a ruthless bank takeover, uncover accounting fraud and trading irregularities. When the tight circle faces off against greedy executives sitting on millions of dollars worth of stock options their financial security blanket is ripped away. The ladies become the target of a predatory national bank. As the intrigue and violence escalates so does the vodka in their namesake drink, Bloody Marys.

How did I come up with the snappy title?

Well...Bloody Mary has special meaning here in Old Town. The Bloody Mary Club, isn’t just about the four ladies drinking made-to-order Bloody Marys – the “Bloody Mary’ originated at Gadby’s Tavern during the colonial times when a slab of bloody ice was delivered and all toasted , “to bloody, bloody Mary!” It was rumored that George Washington was there to celebrate in the toast.

The novel is now available in
Paperback - Amazon or Barnes & Noble
e-book - Amazon or Barnes & Noble
