I am a novelist. My first novel, Bright Deep, was written for my son, starting shortly after he was born in 1985. I have written three novels set in the 19th Century. Concession Street Secrets is published. A Foundling's Quest and Hawdon (a sequel to Bleak House) are awaiting publication. I took the Stanford two-year novel writing program.
