• About Me

    I write historical thrillers that feature fierce and dangerous women. I write about the thieves and servants, murderesses and mediums, grifters and frauds - the women with darker stories and tangled motives.


    Novels include the historical thrillers THE DECEPTION (September 2022), the bestselling Silver Falchion Award winner AFTER ALICE FELL, and THE COMPANION, lauded‚Äč by Publishers Weekly as "a captivating tale of psychological suspense." I am also the author of the young adult historicals BOWERY GIRL and WILLA award winner CISSY FUNK.


    I have taught creative writing workshops since 2010. Workshops are experiential, with writing exercises and feedback focused on skills to strengthen prose and story. I love writing and I love to teach. Enough said.
