When a controversial politician is found dead of natural causes, Celia and Nick must prove his death came about in a most unnatural way...

I abandoned a career in Engineering to take up the pen and haven't looked back. A multi-published author, I am also a former winner of the  Daphne du Maurier award. 

I write historical mysteries. My San Francisco series is set in 1860s California after the Civil War. My Bess Ellyott Mysteries are set in late 16th century England.

When not writing, I enjoy singing with various choral groups, gabbing about writing with friends, and eating dark chocolate. After two decades in Arizona, I now live in my home state of Ohio with my family.
