Caycee Scarlet Tangles with the Zodiac Killer


Scarlet Envy Front

Book Two of the Scarlet Suspense series — Scarlet Envy — is now available on Amazon! Clever FBI Analyst Caycee Scarlet is back in action with all the usual suspects.

Including the delicious men in her life:

  •  Handsome boyfriend and boss, FBI Special Agent Gil Graham-  although their job and personal lives are not meshing so well now that they are working in Washington, D.C.
  • Devilish Carl Hicks- plotting and sacrificing everything to win Caycee’s heart.
  • Loyal confidant Alec Perez- who sticks by her side through a new boss and every rule Caycee breaks.

Thrown into the mix are a couple of serial killers that make their attacks personal — for Caycee. And it gets very personal when Siobhan Hicks, Carl’s crazy ex, pulls them into finding the infamous Zodiac Killer.

Scarlet Envy – Book 2 is Coming!!!


Exciting news on the publishing front — Scarlet Envy (Book 2 in the Scarlet Suspense Series) is at the proof stage! That is when an author gets to see the almost completed book and approve the layout.

The good news is… the book looks great!

The extra good news is… Scarlet Envy will be on Amazon really soon!

I’ll keep you posted on the release date!

WIP Challenge


The incredibly talented romance writer Karen Mueller Bryson, who writes as Dakota Madison (among other pen names you’d know), has included me in a works-in-progress challenge. Here’s how the challenge goes:

1) Provide the link back to the post by the person who nominated you.
2) Write a little about your work-in-progress.
3) Give the first sentences of the first three chapters of your current WIP.
4) Nominate four other writers for the challenge.

I’m currently working on book two in the Scarlet Suspense Series: Scarlet Envy. And I’m super close to completing it!!!! Expect to see the release by the end of October!!! Scarlet Envy has FBI analyst Caycee Scarlet on the trail of the Zodiac Killer. Not that she’s sure he’s even still alive, having disappeared in the early 1970’s after terrorizing California. Everyone around Caycee is dying to figure out the connected!

I’ve had fun with this installment of the series! I love the history of pulling a real-life serial killer into the mix, although I was careful not to re-write history. Caycee, however, stays rooted with the usual suspects from her life: hansom FBI agent Gil Graham and devilish bombing suspect Carl Hicks. Although, Hicks is a changed man and it’s all because of Caycee.

Here are the first three sentences of the first three chapters:

Chapter One: You can miss many things in life, even the bad stuff.

Chapter Two: Our office stairwell felt like the only place I could escape the chaos and read the love letter.

Chapter Three: Hicks gave me a two-finger wave to move quickly.

Here are the four writers that I’m nominating for the Work-In-Progress Challenge:
Jake Ash Strife
Marla Hayes
Angela Falkowski
Cindy McCoy

How do you kill a man with no Achilles heel? You cut off his foot. -Tom Jones

Set against the serene beauty of Kashmir, Ladakh and Tibet, Kingdom Come is a gripping story of death and loss, vengeance and retribution, love and life. Krivi Iyer is an embittered former spy and bomb defusal expert with only one regret. That he couldn’t catch The Woodpecker, a dangerous, mentally unstable bomber who ended his partner’s family. He has a second chance to go after his arch enemy with the arrival of Ziya Maarten, the manager of ‘Goonj Business Enterprises’ in Srinagar, Kashmir, who is alleged to be The Woodpecker’s sister. Except, Ziya is a beautiful distraction and not a terrorist’s sister. When a tragedy in London tears Ziya’s life apart, she can only rely on Krivi to give her the absolution and vengeance she needs to move on. Between training to be an anti-terrorist squad member and finding The Woodpecker, Ziya uncovers the secrets of Krivi’s tormented past. But will two tortured souls find the courage to love?


Aarti always wanted to be either a lawyer. Or a writer. So she tossed a coin and picked writer. Or rather, it picked her. Since then, she has valiantly struggled to put words to paper and bring characters and stories alive that make people sigh and laugh and enjoy every moment of. She has studied Journalism from Mumbai University, Creative Writing at Deakin, and considers herself a student of life. Her three favorite words are, Happy-Ever-After. She has written one romantic thriller already “White Knight” under Aarti V and has a historical series “The Lords of Devil Manor” debuting in June 2014. You can talk to her on
