When I set out to write this series, I wanted to write the kind of books that I like to read - usually fast-paced mysteries and thrillers with a bit of romance, strong characters and plenty of plot twists and turns. The Carlswick Mysteries are a great mix of these elements. The series focuses on the mystery genre overall with the romantic relationship between Stephanie and James running through each book. History is a key theme, particularly European history surrounding World War II and its cultural impacts.

Praise for The Carlswick Mysteries:
“A suspense-filled thriller, packed full of twists and turns. Highly recommended.” The Wishing Shelf
“Fast paced and highly entertaining.” Reader’s Favorite
