Welcome to my web site,
I hope you’ll linger awhile. I
write historical fiction about strong

professions, as well as writing a
Victorian-era mystery series about a
female undertaker. My latest book,
THE MOURNING BELLS, released in April
2015, and my next book, DEATH AT THE
ABBEY, comes out in October 2015.
Please see my Books page for

titles. If you want more
