Thanks for visiting. I write historical thrillers and crime fiction set in a variety of places and time periods–the Middle Ages, the Cold War, colonial America, the Depression, the 18th century….


As a historian, I adore the past, all pasts.

As a fiction writer, I’m drawn to stories. Old photographs are the perfect combination of both interests, particularly mysterious pictures that seem to hold some kind of untold story.

Like the one above.

That I can’t take my eyes off.
