Writing romantic suspense is an adventure. My heroes and heroines include police detectives, CSIs, DNA experts, and forensic anthropologists like you see on the TV show Bones. The heroine of my new book, EXPOSED, is a forensic photographer. Every time Maddie Callahan grabs her camera and heads off to a crime scene, she is on a mission to help bring criminals to justice.

EXPOSED is the latest book in my Tracers series, which focuses on a world-renowned crime lab where an elite group of forensic scientists known as Tracers help police detectives solve their very toughest cases. Maddie loves working at the crime lab and has built a stellar career as a forensic photographer. Her personal life, on the other hand, needs help. After a major loss, Maddie has shut herself off from relationships, especially with men. But when she crosses paths with FBI agent Brian Beckman, all bets are off. Brian is determined to get past Maddie's defenses and gain her trust.

When a photograph Maddie took becomes key evidence in a federal investigation, Brian realizes Maddie's life is in danger because of something she saw through her camera lens. He is intent on protecting her... and also unlocking her heart.

I had so much fun writing EXPOSED and learning all about crime scene photography. I interviewed forensic photographers and came to understand just how important their work is to detectives and prosecutors, who use their photos at trial. Maddie is passionate about her job and considers herself "the eyes of the jury."

I hope you will enjoy reading about Maddie's life and love in EXPOSED. Readers often ask me if you need to the read the Tracers books in order, and you don't. Each story features a different mystery and a different romantic couple, so feel free to plunge right in!

Sounds good. Count me in.
(Pat Lieberman 7:34am June 26, 2013)

You live in the perfect area to find material in which to write your books - especially the area you've chosen to write about. I've seen several stories in the news lately regarding death penalty cases in your state, and people being put to death for different reasons. That alone should go hand in hand with the stories you write about. I'm sure that I'll enjoy your books. They should be just the type of reading to get into for my Summer reading!! I love the cover to your latest book as well!! There's something about her wind-blown hair, that sort of blends into the background, that catches your eye!! Congratulations on all of your awards!! I'm sure with all of your interviews and hard work, they go hand-in-hand with the kudos you've received!!
(Peggy Roberson 8:58am June 26, 2013)

(Anna Speed 11:26am June 26, 2013)

I loved the original CSI and NCIS, I even loved Quincy (showing my age I guess). Cases in a book or TV drama are always solved by the end and I always think "too bad it isn't that way in the real world." Love your books and hope you have many more years of success!!
(Annetta Sweetko 11:27am June 26, 2013)
