About Me

My Sun sign is Sagittarius, and the Archer in me loves to travel. Visiting cities like Venice, the setting of Renaissance Woman, provides great inspiration for stories. Another Romantic Suspense takes place on the Greek Island of Crete.

While traveling is fun, there's no place like home. I was born in Louisiana and still live there. All my mysteries, written as A.C. Mason, are set in South Louisiana.   I'm a member of Sisters-in-Crime and Sisters-in-Crime New Orleans.

A very spoiled cat named Wiley shares my home. My two daughters and their families live in nearby communities. Yes, I'm a grandmother and a great grandmother
