This is Jen, and I’m just pleased as whiskey that you’re here. I would be pleased as punch, but who really likes punch? ‘Sides, whiskey is so much better.

I just finished what I think will be the final draft of my first novel. I’m currently working with a graphic designer to get a super cool cover. Can’t wait for the first review so I can share it with everyone.

By everyone, I mean my sister and my husband. I doubt I have any other followers. But hey, you gotta start somewhere and I love my fans. You two are the best! 🙂 ha.

I have tweaked the synopsis and will be adding it to my Books page. I’ll keep updating that page with cover art and the link to Amazon when it’s finally up for order.

So you don’t have to click, I’m adding the synopsis right here. See how nice I am?


When you’re a female private investigator in a city like Chicago, you don’t expect the work to come easily for you.

Washing out of the police academy, Detective ‘Mal’ Malone, a sassy baton-carrying redhead, spends her time working cases from theft, embezzlement, and the occasional cheating spouses, but only when money is tight.

Running out of leads on a missing persons case, Mal stumbles upon a serial arsonist. Between juggling cases, several cups of very good coffee and the attentions of an attractive fire caption, she finds she’s digging into some dangerous territory.

Unearthed secrets within city politics and the local mafia lead to some menacing adversaries. Mal will need to lean on the help of some new friends, old friends and all of her wits to solve these cases.
