Front Page News was published in May 2016 by Penguin Random House, after being selected from its open submissions pile.

Cadet journalist Stacey McCallaghan is struggling to find news in the small country town of Toomey when suddenly there's an influx of front-page stories - in the form of murder. Ambitious Stacey is pleased to have something to report on, plus, it’s an excuse to spend more time with arrogantly attractive Detective Scott Fitzgerald. But when Stacey shows up at one crime scene too many, she hits the top of the suspects list, and has to find the killer before the cops decide she’s the culprit.
