Welcome to my web site.
You'll find information here about my novels, previously in print from Bantam, Simon & Schuster, Ballantine, and Pocket/Pocket Star Books. They are all in ebook stores now, in new editions with new covers. The buttons at right and the pull-down menu above will take you to information about them, including plot descriptions, reviews, and the opening page of each.
When I'm asked which I'd recommend as introductions to my series, I usually say Prior Convictions (Willa Jansson) and The Good Fight (Laura Di Palma). So I've put them together in an omnibus edition titled--given the theme of both--Politics is Murder. It's available now in Kindle, Nook, and Apple ebook stores.
If you're interested in reading my latest short story, "Snow Job," originally in the January/February 2019 issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, it's also in Kindle and Apple ebook stores.
I've put some complete short stories online, too. “Dead Drunk” was first published in Scott Turow's anthology Guilty As Charged. It won the Shamus Award for Best P.I. Story of 1996. "The River Mouth" was originally in Tony Hillerman's The Mysterious West, "Do Not Resuscitate" was in Carolyn Hart's Crimes of the Heart, and "Destroying Angel" was in Marilyn Wallace's Sisters in Crime 2.
Best wishes, Lia
