Coming soon -- the next Ed Ramsey Mystery!
Bad Breath

Guitarist Ed Ramsey, his girlfriend, and his son embark on a weekend scuba diving trip in the Gulf of Mexico, only to have it marred by tragedy: a diver goes missing and later is found dead on the sea bottom. However, what first appears to be a fatal accident turns out to be a baffling case of murder, and Ed reluctantly finds himself entangled in the investigation.

My first mystery novel is now available!
Arrangement for Revenge

Edwin Ramsey, a jazz guitarist and music professor at a small college, has his life turned upside down when his department chairman is found with his throat slashed.


Ed becomes embroiled in the murder when Allison Clark, the victim’s oboe student, discovers the body and rushes into Ed’s studio for help. To complicate things further, Ed’s friend and faculty colleague becomes the prime suspect in the killing.


Questions abound as the local sheriff tries to sift through the puzzling clues. What is the motive for the crime? Is the enigmatic Miss Clark somehow involved? Why does a student’s suicide four years earlier seem to hold a key to identifying the murderer? While trying to help the sheriff solve the mystery, Ed finds his own life in danger!

​This is available as an e-book from several online book dealers.  I hope to have a paperback version available in the near future as well. Please keep checking this site for details!
