"My Neighbor's Keeper," the first in a series, is centered on retired paramedic Mrs. Charlotte Henson, aka Charlie or Mrs. H. She's sixty years old and a widow. Her husband, a former police officer, was run down by a drunk driver three years before.

Charlie befriends shy six-year-old Bert, from next door. One evening, Bert comes to her door, dirty, tattered and crying. His mother won't wake up and his two younger sisters, he says, are hungry. Charlie runs to the rescue, and ends up embroiled in a murder. Bert's mother is crumpled at the foot of the cellar stairs.

When Charlie realizes she's under surveillance, she sneaks out the back door and down to the river, where her canoe is kept. She gets out on the river, at night, in a rain storm, goes upriver and travels to a cabin hidden in the woods in order to buy time to solve the crime.

Along her journey, she makes friends, and also gets help from her husband's niece, Louise.
This is the first in the Charlie Henson series.

About the Author

I currently live in Farmington Maine, the site of this novel, and have lived here for almost forty years. I was brought up not far from here in Livermore Falls and have lived in this area most of my life. I have found great joy in the calming effects of the outdoors.

I’ve done many kinds of work, including office work, wool spinning, shoe shop piece work, and egg processing. I’ve worked in personal care, transportation and education. I’ve been writing throughout it all and find I enjoy mysteries, both the writing, and the reading of them. My goal since my graduation, in my thirties, from University of Maine-Farmington in Community Nutrition, has been to help people discover themselves and find ways to cope with problems and overcome roadblocks in order to better their lives. After a devastating car accident in 1992, I went back and acquired the—then new—degree, BFA in Creative Writing from UMF, to help with my writing career. Writing has actually taught me much about myself and my relationship to others. We are all connected in this vast hoi polloi and the better we understand ourselves, and each other, the easier life will flow for us.

Hope you enjoy this book, and this series.
