Historical fiction, crime fiction, true crime.
Thought-provoking, character-driven literary fiction.
Descriptive and engaging nonfiction.

Writing, for me, is bliss. But I am simply a conduit through which my characters tell the story.
They are the story.

My body of work includes both fiction and nonfiction, short form and long form, as well as articles and blogs of literary interest.

While I am comfortable playing across a broad range of genres, much of my focus is on historical fiction, crime fiction, and true crime. Rigorous research is foundational to my writing. I get that honestly, having spent much of my professional career as a scientist.

I split my time between midtown Atlanta and a lake in the North Georgia mountains, far away from the rat race of the city. The balance between city life and mountain life inspires my writing.

In this space I will share what I’m reading and working on, as well as other items of interest to readers and writers alike. I hope you enjoy it. I have kept some of my earlier professional articles and blogs here so you can read them as well.
