Advance Praise for Grave Disturbance

"Beautifully written,  Grave Disturbance evokes the fragile beauty of the Cascade foothills and the precarious balance of the human mind in the grip of fear. The story feels so real you can smell the dirt from the plundered graves."
          Jeanne Matthews–Where the Bones Are Buried
"An atmospheric mystery novel filled with lyrical language that will transport you to a misty place where nothing is clear and danger hides in the shadows."
