I enjoy meeting the folks who read my books. This year I’ll be focusing publicity efforts on Pennsylvania, the setting of my new historical mystery, A Stranger Here Below. I also have events scheduled in my home state of Vermont and elsewhere in New England. To set up a book signing or engage me as a speaker or panelist, please contact me HERE.
