Hi, There!

Are you looking for a book that is funny, has quirky characters – probably some you know personally but won’t admit to it in public because they might be your friends, small town craziness let loose, some good old fashion twists and plot turns to keep you entertained so you can de-stress after an aggravating day at work?

Parker Bell and her merry band of hormonal, sugar-and-caffeine infused Lady Gatorettes run into more shenanigans than Carter has little green pills. My attorney unequivocally states I have to say all of my stories and characters “may be” loosely based on my hometown and people I know. Please note, all of the Parker Bell Cozy Mysteries are fiction. They in no way represent real people or events…maybe. Well, probably not…or mostly not. Not really. Pretty much not really. Oh, heck, read the books for yourself and decide.

The Faberge Easter Egg – Tsar Chauncey and Tsarina Anne Livingstone have moved to Po’thole from the frigid tundra of Maine. They have a Faberge Easter Egg. Is it real or is it fake? What does Russian billionaire Anatoly Petrov have to do with it? Has the Cold War come to Po’thole? Parker Bell and the Lady Gatorettes are back for international mystery, intrigue, and Po’thole’s own brand of craziness.

You didn’t base any of these characters on me, did you? Do we need to discuss this? You’re not answering my phone calls either.

I KNOW these people! They live in small towns everywhere. Love the story. I’m still laughing.

I laughed so hard at Parker Bell and the Lady Gatorettes I thought my husband was going to have to call 911 on me.

I can’t have lunch with you any more. Someone might think I’m in your book. You know you are wrecking my reputation in town.


Po'thole City Official



Parker Bell is a wise-cracking, somewhat sarcastic heroine who keeps being pulled back to her hometown to solve unexplained murders. Everything you have ever read or thought about crazy Southern characters in a small sleepy town in northeast Florida is….true! The Lady Gatorettes – five hormonally challenged women who believe there is never enough sugar and caffeine in their bodies – show up on a regular basis, corrupt cops, a city commissioner who is a personal friend of “Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson” and totes her gun around in an oversized purse heavy enough to anchor a houseboat during a storm…well, you get the idea.

Enough crazy characters, who may or may not be loosely based on people found in a somewhat fictional small town in northeast Florida, who will keep you laughing with their antics. (sigh) Attorneys and their disclaimers.
