I write historical fiction. My first novel, The Pict, is an award-winning story of Calach, leader of the 1st century Pictish tribes (in what is now Scotland) in their resistance against Roman conquest.

My second historical novel, Jerusalem Falls, was published in April, 2012. It's set in the Middle Ages, around the time the Crusades collapsed and the Templars met their bitter end.

I'm currently working on a trilogy set in Ireland that follows the trials and the triumphs of a family through the 18th century Penal Laws, the Great Famine of the 19th century, the 1916 Easter Rising, and the tragic civil war that followed.

A native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I grew up surrounded by the richness of American history, and my love for both history and literature caught on early.

If you've read The Pict or Jerusalem Falls, I hope you liked them, and I thank you for your interest in my work.
