About this author

With all the style and wit of the classic "Thin Man" movies, The Yankee Club follows a detective turned mystery writer and a Broadway actress in 1933 as they investigate the murder of their childhood friend, along the way uncovering a Nazi plot against newly elected President Franklin Roosevelt.

The Yankee Club, will be released by Random House Alibi in August of 2014, followed by the second in the Jake and Laura series, All That Glitters next January!

I also looked back in time during Goodbye Emily: Three baby boomers relive their 1969 trip to Woodstock. One final roadtrip. One last chance to say Goodbye Emily.
