I am the author of the Niki Alexander mysteries. LESS DEAD was my debut mystery with L & L Dreamspell and came out September 2008. LOST WITNESS is the second in the series with the projected release date of September 26, 2009. Niki is an ex-cop turned counselor for runaway and throwaway teenagers in the heart of Houston. She does whatever it takes to keep these kids safe.
The Final Twist has authored three anthologies. My short story, "Searching for Rachel," appears in the second anthology, A DEATH IN TEXAS. "Dying for Chocolate" is included in the upcoming A BOX OF TEXAS CHOCOLATES. Chocolate is my weakness. Can't live without it. Which makes our launch party at The Chocolate Bar on Alabama that must sweeter.
