Manicured lawns (and rehab), domestic bliss (and domestic violence), golf clubs (and strip clubs)--welcome to suburbia, circa right now! A series of novels featuring the same cast of characters, Suburban Sprawl is one scoop erotica, one scoop murder mystery and one scoop ghost story, with a generous dollop of wicked satire.

Set in a surreal landscape in transition--where mega-malls and McMansions sprout cheek-to-jowl with redneck bars and strip clubs--and populated by characters consumed with unintentionally hilarious self-involvement, Suburban Sprawl is sexy, satirical and scary.

It all begins with The Liar's Guide, an erotic ghost story and murder mystery about the quirky human need to keep secrets--and the delight some people take in creating multiple lives. Handsome Jack Marin hires ex-stripper Laura, and his jilted mistress and passive-aggressive wife set out to create the perfect soccer mom murder plot. Staking out Laura's house, one brings home-baked cupcakes; the other brings a Glock.

The chaos continues in The Chilling Effect, as suddenly-famous writer Debbie Bloom draws the lethal attention of her bitter ex-husband and a murderous chameleon. Meanwhile, her passion for bad boy Jack Marin simmers--well, until it starts to boil over, of course!

When is it love, and when is it obsession? Intertwined stories of obsessive passion wrap and tighten around each other like a noose as Owning Betty spins out in a claustrophobic landscape of recurring ice storms and murder. Meanwhile, Laura strays from the unlikely domestic bliss she has found with Jack, and her dead husband simply refuses to let go with love.

The fourth volume in Suburban Sprawl, The Suicide Tour (A Love Story), is a story about unlikely love--and cyber stalking! When is it love, and when is it suicide? It's hard to tell as someone Jack Marin loves mysteriously disappears, and a lethal stalker finds a welcoming home in cyberspace.

In Leviathan, two murder mysteries, a cyber stalker and an immanent flood create an atmosphere as ominous as the constant rainfall as one bad boy flees the country and another trades one addiction for another. Meanwhile, the ghost population of Bucks County, Pennsylvania keeps growing.

The only thing you can count on is that everything will change. Established relationships end and new alliances are formed as sadomasochistic sex leads to tricky "disposal issue" and baby booties become the final straw for a mercurial lover. Dark humor ties it all together in Switch, the sixth novel in the Suburban Sprawl series.

What's next? Oh, I'm not telling . . .except that One Cube Over, currently a work in progress, will be the much-anticipated seventh novel in Suburban Sprawl.
