Carlene Rae Dater

San Diego, California, United States


I began my writing career as a journalist writing hard news, feature articles and humorous essays. I have sold short stories to magazines in the horror, confession, religious and humor markets. I have published three humorous mysteries, a romance, a romantic suspense novel, a straight mystery, a paranormal romantic suspense novella and a non-fiction novel about my adventures as a volunteer at the San Diego Sheriff’s department. I teach a monthly Writing Workshop and write full time from my home in Southern California where I live with my husband and two huge Labrador Retrievers.
