About dm sterrett

After thirty-plus years of writing advertising and online content for industries ranging from finance to education to medicine, dm sterrett wanted to write what she loved: mysteries. Raised on Agatha Christie and Ellery Queen along with a steady diet of Sue Grafton and Janet Evanovich, she read every mystery she could get her hands on. As an adult she fell in love with sailing and long cruises up and down the East Coast, to the Vineyard, Nantucket, Bermuda, and in the Caribbean.  With long nights on watch, what better time to dream up wicked mysteries and nefarious characters?

She later stumbled on NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). The challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days was just the creative kick in the pants she needed. Hence was born a short version of Ocean Effect. The fiction hook was firmly set - Ocean Effect was soon followed by No Safe Harbor, River Banks and Key Chaos – all set on different boats in different locations with all the mayhem you could wish for, along with more twists and turns than a spinnaker sheet.

Rhode Island is her home port, where she sails as often as she can. She is also a member of Mystery Writers of America and the Association of Rhode Island Authors.

At sea, my favorite place!
