I'm an author and copywriter. My murder mystery, Sins of the Border, follows Lila, ex-newspaper reporter turned suburban mom, as she tries to solve the murder of a beloved Arizona artist, known for her efforts to aid Hipanic immigrants. When Lila's best friend stands accused of the crime, she becomes even more determined to find the killer, following the trail of evidence from the upper eschelons of Scottsdale to the violent border of Mexico. Will Lila find the culprit before her friend is shipped off to prison in designer jailhouse duds? Or will the killer find Lila first?
