Bad Company

Detective Malone Series Book 1

Loner private eye Mal has three goals as she navigates the mean streets of Chicago: Avoid the local mafia, keep an eye on the smoking-hot fire captain, and maintain a steady stream of coffee in her veins.


Unfortunately, one of those things is proving a lot easier to manage than the other two. 

Determined to prove her worth, Mal jumps ship from the police academy to open her own private investigator agency. She has the training but going solo might not have been the best decision...for a long life, that is.


Stumbling upon a crime she can’t ignore, even if it doesn’t fund her ten-cup-a-day coffee addiction, a sizzling fire captain stands between her and the solid lead she needs. Unlikely new friendships come to her aid...wait, doesn't she do things on her own? Either way, now she has to keep them out of the gangster's crosshairs as well. 


If Mal can’t crack the case soon, she’ll not only fail at keeping her friends safe, but she could soon become the target herself.

Follow local PI Mal through the streets of Chicago, slinging back coffee, and avoiding the local mafia. This zippy, lighthearted romp is perfect for fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and Stephanie Bond's Two Guys Detective Agency.

Detective Malone Series Book 2

A former crush. An ongoing investigation. A criminal mastermind. At least Mal isn’t doing it all on her own this time around. 

Detective “Mal” Malone’s life has turned upside down. Her office has been taken over by a new friend and employee, Suzy, and Suzy’s husband, Sam, who persistently pops in like the techie-rockstar and wanna-be detective that he is. She has to take on enough work to keep the lights on, but she’s dedicated to finding a way to nail slippery Dessi to the concrete floor of the jail cell.

A new case of stolen jewelry highlights Sam’s strengths and puts a new spin on how she does her job. Then, an unexpected visit from Rhodes, a fireman she shared a combustible history with, joins her on an out-of-state journey to find his estranged father. What could go wrong?

The new team comes together to devise a carefully laid plan that leads her directly into the lion’s den. Mal’s been caught in his web once before. This time, will she make it out alive?

Under Pressure

Detective Malone Series Book 3

Rhodes joins Mal and the team as they come up with an elaborate plan to put Dessi down once and for all in this heart-pounding installment of the Detective Malone series. Brace for intrigue, deception, and twists. The con is on!

Mal and her unlikely team have hit enough dead ends to last a lifetime and the building threat of criminal mastermind Dessi holds them in a state of danger. One single, illegally-planted bug in the conference room of underground criminals is the ace in the hole—that is, if they can actually catch something incriminating. 

Each lead guides them down another path of disappointment. Not even a side-case at a local pet store can pull the team from their plummeting spirits. Time is running out and loyalties are challenged, forcing them to attack Dessi head-on if they’re going to end this thing. 

The two teams embark on a complicated game of cat and mouse, and even with all the coffee in the world, Mal doesn’t know who will come out on top.
