She's included in the GREAT WOMEN MYSTERY WRITERS by Elizabeth Lindsay 2nd editon published in the UK.

Several of her books have been chosen as BookSense Picks and INDIE NEXT choice by the Amerian Association of Independent Bookstores.

Cara, like Aimée, once had a moped and appreciates their tempermental tendencies. She also, like Aimée, likes dogs and owns a Coton de Tulear Unlike Aimée, she has never owned an apartment on the Ile St. Louis but feels she will someday when the lottery smiles on her. She loves black and white photography and took many of the photos on this website--but not this one. Dennis Hearn, a prominent North Beach photographer, was bribed with several lattes to spend his afternoon doing this.
