About me

My novels focus on the lives of medieval mystics, bringing their stories out of the realm of the fantastical and into the touchable arena of troubled times, mystical doubts, and the triumphs over the hardships of life in the Middle Ages. In my novels I create what I call “touchable saints,” enabling readers to dive into the realm of Spirit while being able to fully empathize and relate to these incredible lives. Combing years of research into the daily life and political atmosphere of the 14th century with in-depth research on medieval mysticism, I write with a passion devoted to the historical atmosphere of the medieval world. Sharing my time between Maine and Siena, Italy, I’m able to craft a novel rich in the poetic resonance of Tuscany.
