She penned her debut mystery novel, Dead In The Water, that is based on her personal experience in open water swimming. With more than 150 open water swimming competitions under her cap from California to Australia, she has a lot to tell.

Dead In The Water is a fast-paced thriller set in San Francisco Bay where it is open season on open water swimmers. Protagonist Trisha Carson’s life is at an impasse. She has no money, no man, and no mojo. But that situation changes abruptly as she is pulled into the competitive world of open water swimming. Baffling accidents keep her asking questions – to all the wrong people until she’s caught in a web of intrigue, revenge and danger.

The exciting climax takes places at San Francisco’s Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park – a real-world venue for the open water swimming community.
