About me

As a writer of historical fiction, the 18th century is my passion.

I have a B.A. in Studio Arts from Whitman College.

My up coming book is Cut From The Earth a historical adventure story about famous 18th century Portuguese tile maker, monogram PMP-Piloto Manuel Pires, who harbors a female tile designer whose invention of the figura de convite, an invitation figure, puts the tile shop’s works in demand by Lisbon’s elite and at odds with a Jesuit priest. When a commission from the Amazon arrives and an omen is disregarded, the shop falls into struggle. Then on November 1, 1755, All Saints Day, Lisbon’s most celebrated liturgical holiday, disasters strike: earthquake, tidal waves, and fire. Piloto’s life is forever changed and challenged as is his shop’s, tile making, Portugal and the priesthood, and the colony of Brazil is called upon to assist and console those that survive — but at a cost to all.
