Gertrude, Gumshoe Cozy Mystery Series

Welcome to Gertrude’s page! It’s about time she got one of her own, isn’t it? We first met Gertrude in Grace Space, and people loved her so much, she showed up again in Shelter, where people loved her even more. So now she has her own series, where she gets to be the star! Introducing … Gertrude, Gumshoe!

Gertrude has been called a lot of things: a hoarder, an odd duck, and a crazy cat lady—but she’s never been called a gumshoe. Until now. When her neighbor goes missing, she can’t help but get involved, no matter how many people ask her not to.

Available for Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Kobo, and Google Play. Also available in paperback from Amazon or wherever books are sold. Available in audio from Amazon, Audible, and iTunes


Gertrude is back! When she finds a murder victim at her local Goodwill, she tries to tell the Sheriff’s Department everything she knows. Of course, they don’t listen. So of course, she must solve the mystery herself. And the only way she can figure to do this is to go undercover—as the Mattawooptock Goodwill’s newest team member. Anyone who knows Gertrude knows this probably isn’t the best idea. She’ll probably get fired. Or arrested. Or worse.
