Most of my career has involved collaborating with exemplary educators—lifelong learners who leave the door open to new skills and fresh knowledge. It’s a perfect environment for a developing writer.
My stories reflect a fascination with the relics and ruins littering the landscape of England, Wales, and Scotland. I’ve driven down so many of their back roads, embraced by people with deep historical roots and an amazing talent for storytelling. My passport, suitcase, and wellies anxiously await another trip across the moody moors and rugged coastline where getting lost often leads to the best discoveries.
On a personal note, I live in the American Midwest with a small family and an even smaller cat. I'm happiest when hiking along the Lake Michigan shoreline, wandering across farm fields, or sitting in front of my laptop. I’m intrigued by articles on art fraud, archeology, and the illegal trade of cultural antiquities. When not reading or writing, I enjoy the dry wit of British comedies, the rich texture of period-piece productions, and the glamour of 1940s televised mysteries. Who doesn't love The Thin Man?
