“I am first and foremost a teller of tales.”

                              Mary Stewart (1916-2014)

Dear Readers,

I’m excited to announce my second book in the ‘House of Caruthers’ series is under contract and on the editor’s desk. After a few name changes, we decided on A Secret Engagement which goes with the first book in the series, A Perilous Proposal. I’m working on a third book, probably with ‘Wedding’ in the title. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

No cover or publication date yet. I’ll post them as soon as they are available.

A Secret Engagement features Edmund and Dolly, gobs of London fog, a murder in fashionable Mayfair, missteps and a daring rescue with a twist. Edmund and Dolly’s engagement is still a secret, much to the frustration of my favorite barrister, Edmund Caruthers. There are other, more sinister engagements in A Secret Engagement and I hope readers will enjoy reading about them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.


With thanks,
