A lifelong lover of the great authors and sleuths of detective fiction’s Golden Age—think Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh, John Dickson Carr and Ellery Queen, I have a positive passion for secluded county estates, shady heirs, locked rooms and impossible murders.

I have poured this love into my books: mysteries featuring professional researcher and Scottish historian Elle Cunningham Mackay, thrillers starring curiosity store owner Emery Vaughn and a pair of Golden Age series featuring former spy Mafalda Marchand and village vicar James Valentine.

Elle Cunningham Mackay must race to prove the innocence of a convicted killer and clear her ex-husband of the young man’s brutal death.

A Haunts & Hollows road trip travel guide with more than 80 macabre, historic and curious stops along the backroads of Georgia.

Who is trying to kill off Clan MacUspaig? Researcher Elle Cunningham Mackay must solve her ex-lover’s murder before the last MacUspaig falls.
