Hello, Friends! Thank you for your interest in my novels.

I live and work in Chester County, Pennsylvania, an area rich in Revolutionary War and Colonial American history. My enduring interest in 18th Century America began at a young age, inspired by the novels of Dale Van Every and Allan Eckert, whose timeless tales of adventure and romance capture the essence of early American lore. Eager to read more such stories, to my disappointment I had trouble finding them on bookshelves, so I decided to write one of my own. Thus began a journey fueled by my passion for breathing life into history through believable characters, plots woven with adventure, romance and suspense and, of course, plenty of derring-do.

You simply can't feel inspired to write 100% of the time. When I'm stuck on a particular chapter, I try to move ahead to the next part of the story. If that doesn't work, I go back and edit the portion already written. This usually inspires me with fresh ideas. If worse comes to worse, I put writing aside for a time to read someone else's work.(less)
