I’m hard at work on Silenced by the Yams, and having tons of fun putting Barb into another high-stakes fiasco/adventure.

Since I just revised the description, I thought I’d post it here for fun.

Remember, Silenced by the Yams is due out in December of this year!


Film lover and suburbanite mother of three, Barbara Marr, attends a film screening that turns deadly, when famous action movie director, Kurt Baugh, is poisoned at the pre-screening dinner. Barb would love to leave the whole mess behind her, but there’s a little problem: her friend, ex-mobster Frankie Romano, is arrested for the murder. Convinced of Frankie’s innocence, Barb takes to finding the true guilty party and restoring Frankie’s good name. When she gets a little too close to the truth, the real killer decides Barb must die, and die HARD.


  1. Uh-oh! Barb’s back in deep do-do. Poor girl, trouble just seems to follow her. Can’t wait!

  2. I love it and I can’t wait.

  3. I’m very excited! I just finished Citizen Insane and loved it! I can’t wait for the new one to come out. I’m happy there are three more for me to read while I wait. 🙂

  4. Thank you for the nice comments everyone! It always makes my day to know Barbara Marr is entertaining readers. 🙂

  5. When is it coming out? Can’t wait to read it!!
