hello
 
Thanks for stopping by! I'm the Agatha Award-nominated author of The Turncoat's Widow, The Counterfeit Wife, and The Paris Mistress, three historical mysteries set during the Revolutionary War. My stories take Becca Parcell and Daniel Alloway—George Washington's two least likely spies—from Morristown and New York City, to Philadelphia, and Paris. I've woven fictionalized versions of real events and people into each story. I hope you enjoy Becca's and Daniel's adventures as much as I've liked writing them.

I was an attorney and volunteer advocate for foster children before becoming a full-time writer. When I'm not writing, you can find me at The Writers Circle Workshops, where I teach mystery writing, on Guns, Knives & Lipstick, the crime fiction Podcast I co-host with three fabulous female mystery writers, or online at the Historical Novel Society, where I interview other authors. I live with my husband in Somerset County, New Jersey, not too far from Morristown, where my first book is set.
