I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas, so that automatically makes me a native Texan... but then I've spent most of my life in New Mexico, so I can claim dual citizenship!
"End of the Road" is the first book in the Black Horse Campground series. The Black Horse and Bonney County exist in my imagination, for the most part, but visit the Ruidoso/Lincoln County region of New Mexico and you'll see how I happened to find it! As for Corrie Black and her friends, I hope you enjoy reading about their adventures as much as I enjoyed writing about them... and I hope there are many more to come!
When I'm not writing, I'm a cake decorator at Walmart in Alamogordo, NM; slinging vino at Noisy Water Winery in mid-town Ruidoso; and being a wife to Paul (since 1988) and mom to Paul Michael (since 1994) as well as enjoying life in general in Bent, NM.
Trouble often comes in threes. It's no different at the Black Horse Campground.
On his first day as detective with the Bonney Police Department, J.D. Wilder finds three cold case files on his desk—three women who disappeared over a fifteen year period. It seems no one has ever taken the cases seriously... or even properly investigated them.
Then J.D. receives news that he's about to receive a visitor; a woman from his past who is in trouble and needs his help. Again. The timing couldn't be worse, since he's finally about to ask Corrie on a date, but then Corrie also has a visitor from her past show up... and Sheriff Rick Sutton has his hands full dodging his ex-wife, Meghan, who insists on digging up a painful past.
When three bodies are discovered that prove the missing women were murdered, J.D.'s investigation reveals that all of their visitors have some connection to the victims. But which one of them killed three women... and is prepared to kill again?
When trouble comes to Bonnie County, Corrie, Rick, and J.D. band together to protect each other and their community. But can they solve the mystery before the murderer strikes again?
