GETAWAY was an Amazon Best Book of the Month and a finalist for SCIBA's T. Jefferson Parker award. GO-BETWEEN, "a terrific noir tale that channels Richard Stark's stories" was a "Hottest Summer Books" selection from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. Booklist called her new novel, BLACK SWAN RISING, "An absorbing and apocalyptic vision of American politics that leaves the reader hoping it will never come to this." Her work has also appeared Akashic's SAN DIEGO NOIR, The Wall Street Journal, Travel+Leisure, Salon, Los Angeles Review of Books and CNET.
