I was born and grew up in Mississippi but have set up households in Rome, Paris, Geneva, London, and fishing villages in France, Portugal, Cyprus and Italy. I am a published novelist, memoirist and writer of true crime with a background in radio, television, and film. Right now my show, Basic Black, is broadcast on World Radio Paris. It is vignettes of crime, scandal, and death; I have a lot of fun with this. I also work as a private detective with cases that range from money laundering and stolen art recovery to missing persons, rape and murder. Plenty of stories, loads of inspiration.
