aka Elizabeth Becka

Lisa Black spent the happiest five years of her life in a morgue. Strange, perhaps, but true. After ten years as a secretary, she went back to school to get a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Cleveland State University. In her job as a forensic scientist at the Cuyahoga County Coroner's Office, she analyzed gunshot residue on hands and clothing, hairs, fibers, paint, glass, DNA, blood and many other forms of trace evidence, as well as crime scenes.

She had her life sorted out just the way she liked it until her husband got fed up with Cleveland snow and moved them to Florida, 1400 miles away from her family and her career. Not that she's bitter or anything. Now she works as a latent print examiner for the city of Cape Coral, Florida, police department, working mostly with fingerprints and crime scenes.

The Fire Thief (2020)
(Dark Paradise Mystery, book 1)
Debra Bokur
"The Fire Thief will make you an instant fan of its rock-solid protagonist, Kali Mahoe."
The Last Raft (2020)
John H Cunningham
"This is an amazing book, and extremely well-written. The issues are thoroughly explained by characters who seem to live and breathe on every page."
The Sacrifice of Lester Yates (2021)
Robin Yocum
"The Sacrifice of Lester Yates starts out as if a tale of true crime, then turns into a combination murder mystery and legal thriller, all set against the deceptively peaceful hills of eastern Ohio. Yocum’s pacing as the clock ticks down on the execution date for a potentially innocent man will keep readers turning the page."
Huron Breeze (2021)
(Sunrise-Side Mystery, book 1)
Landon Beach
"It's impossible for a writer not to be instantly taken with this tale of an author so desperate for a plot idea that she becomes an apprentice PI after a man turns up on her beach with a knife in his back. You'll thoroughly enjoy this unique page-turner."
The Greenleaf Murders (2022)
(Historic Homes Mystery, book 1)
R J Koreto
"I believe I was secretly born to be an architect, which is probably why I so enjoyed this mystery of a stately NYC mansion and its role in murders both past and present."
