About me

My first novel, Tornado Siren, was published by Behler Publications. I’m also an award-winning playwright—thirty-five of my plays are published and have been produced in theatres around the world. I’ve written several historical plays including Reading the Mind of God, about the astronomers Kepler and Tycho, and Fire on Earth, about the creation of the English Bible, which was developed with the Huntington Theatre Company. I was commissioned to write the book for an historical musical, None but the Best, about 19th century Boston philanthropist and publisher, Daniel Sharp Ford, which premiered in November 2013. I’ve recently completed my first historical novel, Steering to Freedom, about escaped slave and ship’s pilot, Robert Smalls. In my spare time, I like to farm.
