Biography

I am a graduate of Denver University with a degree in mathematics and physics. As a Woodrow Wilson Fellow, I did graduate work at Brown University. I lived in and traveled widely throughout Asia for seven years, including two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Philippines and five years in Japan, where I taught English. I have spent dozens of summers in Maine, on lakes and in the woods. I chose it as the setting for this novel because I love its rugged natural beauty and the charming idiosyncrasies of Mainers. I have also written and recorded three musical albums. This, along with my formal education, proved invaluable when molding the persona and voice of Jesse Thorpe, the narrator in my series of mysteries: 1) DEAD DOWN EAST, 2) A PRIESTLY AFFAIR, 3) REDBONE and 4) FLIM FLAM. 

Currently, I am a freelance writer living in Sedona, Arizona.
