I was born in Houston, Texas but have lived most of my life in Minnesota. An avid angler, I served in various positions at In-Fisherman and FLW Outdoors, including a stint as Publisher for the latter. I authored the book "The New Fishing Fundamentals" for In-Fisherman. 
My fiction writing began with two children's books.  My children loved the "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman" annual television specials providing the inspiration for "Jingle Bells". Bicycle Betty was inspired by a conversation regarding a bicycle that had been stolen but was later found in a pond.
Clean Kill, Blood River, No Other Gods, Bring Her Home, A Time For Revenge, and Purgatory Creek follow the exploits of Dave and Don Trask, identical twin brothers in law enforcement, as they chase down killers across Minnesota.  Like me, the brothers love to fish, and I try to throw in a few fishing tidbits in each book.   
The Edge of Winter is the first solo book for Danny Carlisle, an agent who has previously appeared in a few of the Trak Brother's books.  Danny is headstrong and independent, traits that seem to get her in serious trouble.
Thanks for reading!
