The first three novels in the Stone Mountain Mystery Series are: Descent, Blaze and Avalanche.

All three novels take place in a fictitious ski resort in the Purcell Mountains, British Columbia. Stone Mountain Resort and Holden, British Columbia do not exist. The areas around them, such as Fernie and Kicking Horse, are real.

I’ve done my best to research the novels and have spoken to many experts. I have interviewed bootfitters, firefighters, EMTs, doctors, and ski resort employees, and I must thank everyone who has helped me along the way. These incredible people have all spent time and effort to provide me with the information I needed. All mistakes are mine.

I couldn’t have written these novels without my circle of friends. My amazing group has spent hours proofreading and commenting. It’s difficult for a friend to critique another’s work, but the input is invaluable. Thanks to all those, and you know who you are, who spent hours and hours working hard.

My strongest supporter is my husband, Mathew. He has encouraged me from the very first sentence and continues to be enthusiastic as I travel through the journey of writing novels.

Descent nominated for the 2014 Arthur Ellis Unhanged Arthur for excellence in crime writing.

Blaze (working title Burnt) shortlisted for the 2014 Debut Dagger.

Short story When a Friendship Fails won the 2014 Audrey Jessup (Capital Crime Writers) and is published in May 2015 Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine.
