Welcome! Thanks so much for visiting.
On this site, you can learn more about me, the books
I write and what is coming up in my world of books.
The news of the moment is that I have two books forthcoming.
SOUTH ST. LOUIS
JUSTICE DENIED FOR NANCY ZANONE
Slaying in South St. Louis - Justice Denied for Nancy Zanone is a true crime book for adults, co-authored with my son, Bryan for The History Press. We have a personal connection with the family of the victim, so it is an important -- and difficult -- book for us to write.
Different Days is a middle grade historical fiction available in stores October 3rd, 2017. The story is set in Hawaii in the early days of World War II. Rosie Schatzer is in for some very different days when , after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, her German-American parents are interned as enemy aliens.
