About me

I love to read — all genres and all time periods.
I write historical fiction, primarily nineteenth century.
My first novel, “Syncopation,” is the fictional memoir of Adele Hugo, daughter of French playwright Victor Hugo. It was published in 2012 by Cornerstone Press.
“Wilde Wagers” features a charade wherein a Victorian actress pretends to be an aristocrat, while the aristocrat pretends to be the actress. Oscar Wilde guest stars. (seeking publication)
“Charlotte’s Inheritance” is the coming of age story of a young woman in 1840s England. After a childhood in a convent surrounded by religious women, Charlotte is brought to her family’s estate, a gathering place of male scientists. (seeking publication)
