When did you write Secrets of a Mayan Moon?

I wrote Secrets of a Mayan Moon two years ago. It is my first trek into writing action adventure and is the first book of a series.

What was the spark that gave you the story idea?

The spark for the Isabella Mumphery adventure series came after complaining to a fellow writer that I’d read a book dubbed a female Indiana Jones adventure and was disappointed. She challenged me to come up with my thoughts on what a book like that would be, and through brainstorming with her, Dr. Isabella Mumphrey was conceived.

Isabella is a young anthropologist with a genius IQ and a survival tin and vest she wears when out looking for ancient drawings and information on the Native Americans she studies. Because all my other books have either cowboys or Indians in them I made her a specialist in Native American people.

In this first book of the series, Secrets of a Mayan Moon, Isabella meets Tino Constantine an undercover DEA agent and sparks fly!

Why do readers buy Secrets of a Mayan Moon?

Most readers are intrigued by how different it is from the usual romantic suspense novel. This is what a few of my readers have said:
  • “I just have one word to say and it's WOW!!!”
  • “Look out Indiana Jones, there is a woman vying to take your place and she will do it with emotion, style, and intelligence.”
  • “…will keep you turning the pages until the very end and then thanking the author she has book 2.”
  • “This is the first book I have read by this author but it will not be the last.”
  • “Isabella and Tino are a spicy combination.”
