Welcome, make yourself at home, and sit a spell while I share my tales of the paranormal, of the enchanting, of the historical, and of the adventurous.

Please peruse my website for interesting Victorian-era tidbits ranging from vintage newspaper articles (Wild West Wednesdays) to artwork; from tantalizing portions of my novels (Milton Mondays), to the occasional blog update about my creative process and the journey to publication.

If you haven’t already, you’ll want to subscribe to my newsletter for access to exclusive goodies by using the easy-peasy one-field form to the right. You’re also welcome to subscribe to my site so you don’t miss any updates here.

Thanks for coming and don’t hesitate to say “hello!”  I love reaching out to readers, writers, and–well, basically anyone who may become a friend. 🙂
