Welcome to my website where I highlight my romances, mysteries, and books for children and young adults. Among my titles are Prepped to Kill, Gadfly, Jigsaw, Lost in Spindle City and Poof! (Ricky Steele Mysteries), A Friend of Silence, In the Name of Silence, and The Silence of Memory (Roger and Bess Mysteries), Widow’s Island, Hestor’s Way, and Song of the Spirit. Song of the Spirit was a finalist The 2014 International Digital Awards for Historical Fiction for Young Adults. I am also the author of the popular Morgan’s Run romance series set in the U.S. southwest. This series begins with Emma’s Dream and nine books later, Gus’ Home. A spin-off series, Morgan’s Fire, set on the New England coast debuted in June 2019 with book #1-- Lucy’s Hearth followed by Tim’s Hands and Pam’s Garden.
My “day job” is as a professor at a small New England liberal arts college. My scholarly work centers around social contexts within which children learn and I am the author of three works of nonfiction. My current research examines the impact of mindfulness on readers and writers, work that brings me tremendous joy and satisfaction. I live on a beautiful river. When not teaching or writing, my passions revolve around family, yoga, swimming, walking, canoeing, and teaching mindfulness to people of all ages.
