Most people know me as a voice teacher or performer, but I’m also a serious bibliophile. I just love books and words; I’ve written four books myself! Sadly, my cookbook is no longer in stock, but the other three are.

How about you? Do you love to read as much as I do?

If so, here’s one to check out.  

Pineapple Wedding – Pineapple Port Mysteries

Amazon US | Amazon CA | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon IN 

New to Pineapple Port? No problem! Each book can stand alone, but be warned, one taste of Pineapple Port’s charm and you’ll want to devour the entire series.


USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amy Vansant tries to marry off her detectives in this latest installment of the fun, thrilling, twisty Pineapple Port Mysteries!

A goat invasion at a local wedding venue pushes the owner to call on Charlotte and Declan of the Charlock Holmes detective agency for help. Short on funds, the new client offers to trade them a free wedding, pushing the detectives to search for other businesses willing to exchange mystery solving for wedding services. When someone murders a local celebrity chef, and his partner turns up as the suspected killer, they might have a caterer…

Charlotte and Declan aren’t the only ones working on their wedding. Mariska and Darla are determined to get Charlotte the perfect wedding gown, but that turns out to be more complicated than expected. Declan’s Uncle Seamus and his mysterious father want to help, too—but nothing is easy in Pineapple Port!

Go, Amy Vansant!

Now, here’s one I wrote several years ago that I basically never talk about. But it’s good. It’s really good, and it’s only $3.95. How do I know it’s good? Because one of my favorite authors told me once she started reading, she finished the whole thing in one sitting and that I’m a terrific writer. A writer can’t get a whole lot better compliment than that now, can she?

How do you be yourself in a world that celebrates conformity over creativity?
