Cabin at The LakeMadison Compton’s story begins in a ramshackle mountain cabin when she was a defenseless child of nine. Terrified, yet defiant, the abused little girl grows up to carve out a successful life for herself in the fast paced world of Industrial Design.

Maddy's BedroomEverything seems perfect for Maddy, then suddenly, without warning, her past returns, threatening to destroy everything she’s built and everyone she loves.

East Los Angeles

Her only hope of salvaging her business and her love life depends on Special Agent Ben Merrill, and he’s lied to her from the beginning.



Deadly Design is a Ben Merrill mystery, that’s been languishing on my hard drive for several years because it is “secular” fiction. It is not “Christian” fiction. It is not “motivational” fiction.  It’s fun fiction…because I love to write almost as much as I love to read…and following Special Agent Ben Merrill through his crazy adventures is fun for me.

I hope Ben’s crazy adventures will be fun for you, too. Let me know what you think…
see ya soon
