I am a Boston-based historical fiction author with a bachelor's degree from Columbia University and a master’s degree from Yale University. I am a life-long lover of history, and my goal is to bring stories of lesser-known historical figures and places to the attention of wider audiences. I have a blog where I share my writing journey, review historical fiction, host guest blogs from fellow authors in the genre, and advocate for making more non-famous women the subjects of historical novels. When not writing, I can be found drinking tea, practicing yoga, reading …. although usually not at the same time.

The Column of Burning Spices by P.K.  Adams
"Amazing book! The second book was as good as the first. The author lent life to a woman out of Catholic history. Saint Hildegard has now become one of my favorite saints."
