The Secret Staircase

3rd book in The Victorian Village Mysteries

Welcome back to Asheboro, Maryland, where real estate can be a matter of life and death...

I always wanted to write, but it took me until 2001 to even try to write a book, until 2006 to find an agent, and until 2008 before I could hold a published book of my own in my hands. Now I write multiple mystery series: the Orchard Mysteries for Berkley, the County Cork Mysteries, set in Ireland, for Crooked Lane Books, the Relatively Dead Mysteries for Beyond the Page Publishing, and the Victorian Village series, from St. Martin’s Press.

I also write short stories, which have appeared in multiple anthologies.
