Ideas for my historical novels grew out of my employment as a journalist–or, more exactly, from the places my job as magazine writer and editor took me. One of those places was Seneca Falls, NY, where I traveled to write a town profile for a regional magazine. I toured Elizabeth Cady...

I thought Wixumlee Is My Salvation was a great read. The author created an interesting plot and believable characters. The story line continues from the 1st book, “A Shocking and Unnatural Incident”. I can’t wait for the next book. This book makes you think what it must have been...

Rochester, NY is no stranger to water. The Genesee River starts as a drip somewhere in Pennsylvania and flows north through New York’s southern tier, past Geneseo and Avon (both mentioned in Wixumlee Is My Salvataion). The narrow river drops down three waterfalls stuck smack in the middle of...

I was blown away by the creativity and energy put into my latest book signing by friends Diane and Vicki. They took their theme from the Black Pole Tavern in Wixumlee Is My Salvation and ran with it. When I walked into Diane’s home it smelled like my grandma’s house–and...
