About The Author

I help catch naughty folk for the Government.


I've successfully run in the Walt Disney World Marathon as a woman, climbed to the top of Mount Fuji, kicked off Mount Rainier, taught English Conversation in Japan, sailed through the Suez Canal twice, hunted pirates in the Persian Gulf, and can analyze anyone's handwriting.


When I worked at the FBI, my thesis on Red Flag Behaviors Found in Relationships, earned me an invitation to present a paper at the First Annual Forensics Congress in China, which led to write the award-winning book Naughty or Nice - Whose List Are You On? available as a handout during lectures. I also co-authored the bestselling book, The Happiness Code with Ray Brehm, and other authors, and we all share our personal happiness hacks you can use too.


My latest award-winning book, The Devil Pulls the Strings received the Literary Titan Award, and 5-Star Book Reviews from Book Viral, Chanticleer Reviews, Literary Titan, and Readers on Good The novel and audiobook shall launch on 15 September, and available on most online retailer websites. The e-book is available for pre-sale on Amazon, Barnes and Noble websites now, and for those who can't wait, sample chapters of the audiobook are avaialble via the following website:
