• With $5 million and their lives on the line, can a determined criminologist and a beautiful con artist learn to trust each other…or themselves?


    “On all levels License to Lie justifiably earned this five star rating!” — San Francisco Book Review (1776 Productions)

    License to Lie
  • “A gripping fast-paced read, with characters you will want to see again and again!” — Deborah Crombie, New York Times Bestselling author of “The Sound of Broken Glass”.

    Con Game
  • “Kauai Temptations is a fast-paced mystery with quirky characters and loads of island charm. Recipe for a great day at the beach: sunscreen, bamboo mat, mango shave ice, and Kauai Temptations in your beach bag!” — JoAnn Bassett, author of The Islands of Aloha Mystery Series

    Kauai Temptations
  • “Toss together a bit of Hawaiian voodoo, a con artist on the trail of a big score, and a wiseass hero who can’t resist getting involved. Mix with wit. Add a touch of sarcasm and you have Terry Ambrose’s ‘Photo Finish’—a mystery as refreshing as a visit to the islands themselves.” — Deborah Coonts, author of “So Damn Lucky” and the Lucky O’Toole Vegas Adventure Series
