A former academic, I used to write nonfiction but then I came up with an idea for a novel and wanted to write it. I’ve always loved reading mysteries and now I am writing them. I’ve started getting short stories published and am revising two mystery novels from two different series, so I hope to move forward with finding an agent and getting published soon. See my pages on my short stories listed in the menu above and my mystery novels.


I still give talks on a number of historical/literary topics from my days as an academic. If you want to hear more about Shakespeare, the War of the Roses, the murder trial of Harry Thaw, or any of a number of other topics I enjoy, take a look at my speaking page and let me know. I currently offer talks freelance through the Oasis Learning Center and Osher, but I’m available through other venues as well.
