About Trespasses
When the skeletal remains of three young women are discovered on the vacation estate of a U.S. Senator, the local sheriff enlists the help of Special Agent Gabe Landry and a local forensic sketch artist to help him solve the murders.  As a profiler, Gabe knows his skills are useless until they discover the identity of the victims.  
That’s where the beautiful and talented Mackayla Kensington comes in. Mackayla is all too familiar with the heartache of not knowing the fate of a loved one. The brutal murder of her own daughter is the driving force behind her determination to bring closure to families missing loved ones. Using her artistry skills, Mackayla works frantically to put faces to the skulls so that their identities can be revealed and the killer can be caught. When the killer realizes how good she is, it appears she may be the next to die.
You can purchase Trespasses at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and most online bookstores.  Here's the link to my author's page on Amazon where most of my books are listed.

Cookies That Are Good for You! Wow! I can't wait to try this recipe.
Anne says, "Not only are these cookies tasty, they’re good for you. And for those of you on weight watchers you get two cookies for one point."
Ingredients. chips (chocolate, peanut butter, butterscotch, white chocolate, whatever you like) and Fiber One 'original' cereal.
Using a double boiler system (glass boil on top of a pan with boiling water {be sure the water is not touching the bottom of your boil}) melt your chips. You need a standard bag of chips. I mixed peanut butter and chocolate together, but you can use whichever flavor you like.
Once melted, mix in an 18oz box of Fiber One cereal, then, with a spoon, scoop them out onto wax paper. Cool. Then enjoy. Note: You could jazz these up by adding coconut, dried cherries, nuts, etc.

Anne's Favorite Bible Verse: Isaiah 49:15-16a (NLT)
“Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child?  Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?  But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!  See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands."

Bio: Anne Patrick is the author of more than a dozen novels of Romance, Mayhem; and Faith, including the award-winning and best-selling Fire and Ash, Lethal Dreams and Sabotage.  Her heroines are usually strong willed, witty, and often very opinionated…combinations that usually land them in situations where death seems imminent.  When she's not working on her next novel she enjoys spending time with family and friends.  She makes her home in Kansas.
