About me

American author and translator writing fiction and nonfiction, with a particular interest in Scandinavia. Fossil Island and its sequel The Former World are novels set in 1880s Denmark about the youthful romance between composer Carl Nielsen and the artist and ethnographer Emilie Demant Hatt. I’m working on a novel set in Port Townsend at the turn of the 1900s about a Norwegian sea captain’s wife and her descendant in contemporary Seattle.
