'I have a bone to pick with you: Your book grabbed me, keeping me from doing my work! Best laid plans epically failed as I was drawn in and HAD to finish the book! You are the master of red herrings.'

- Terry Rabe, teacher

'A stunning novel – a true rocket ride into a brilliantly imagined adventure. Very highly recommended.'

- Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Reviewer

Welcome! Whether it's the YA fiction of Kaylee's Choice, the regional non-fiction of Haunted Mukwonago, or my newest novel, The Book of Invasions, it has been fun to write books that appeal to almost everyone!

The Book of Invasions...

Where can you find mystery, romance, a wry sense of humor, and a globe-hopping tour of cruelty and nightmares all in one place? That would be my latest novel, The Book of Invasions. Twin sisters, a relentless cult, Egyptian and Celtic tombs, and a 5,000-year-old scrap of parchment that may be nothing. Or it may be the end of everything.

Not just adult thrillers; check out the YA titles

My murder whodunits and thrillers have gained me many fans. But so have my YA titles such as Kaylee's Choice (which Hornpipe magazine called 'a book every Irish dancer should read'), The Irish Witch's Dress and Dance of Time. The Kaylee O'Shay, Irish Dancer series is beloved across the US and also boasts readers in Canada, Australia, Mexico, England and Ireland. Check them out by clicking on the appropriate menu item.
