I am currently at work on my first solo endeavor, a historical novel set in Renaissance Venice.

I am the coauthor with Janice Kirk of The Sidewalk Artist, Ciao Bella, and The Wolves of St. Peter's.

I along with Janice also have written under the pen name Meadow Taylor and have won one Canada Council for the Arts grant and two Ontario Arts Council grants.

My Historical Fiction Recommendations – Fall 2020

What is there to say about 2020? No matter your position on masks or vaccines, I think we can all agree that 2020 is #theworstyearever.

Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith
"I’d say this was between 4-4.5 stars for me, but my reasons for rounding up to 5 are twofold:

1) I love Cormoran and Robin, and all I want to do is quit my job, somehow learn how to become a private detective, and move to London to hang out with them " Read more of this review »
