So, although the Publishers Marketplace announcement isn't up yet, my editor and new pub. told me it was okay to announce this --
I have switched genres (to cozy and light mysteries) and taken on a penname (Victoria Gilbert) and ... drumroll... it seems to have been a good change.

For those who don't want to click through to my blog, here's the news:
I am thrilled to announce that I have signed a three book contract with Crooked Lane Books for my Library Mystery Series.
Book One — A MURDER FOR THE BOOKS — will be published in January 2018, with the next two books releasing later in 2018 and in early 2019.
My editor is Faith Black Ross, who acquired the books for Crooked Lane. My agent, Frances Black of Literary Counsel, brokered the deal.
I’ve discovered a great love for writing mysteries (it makes sense, as I have always loved to read them) so I am very excited to embark on this new writing adventure.
