About Me

I'm the author of award winning historical romance featuring pirates, smugglers, privateers and the occasional possum. My novels are available in digital and print editions, and I'm hard at work on my next book.

I haven't been a pirate (yet) but I've been a news director, reporter, producer, and radio station owner.

My idea of a great work day is throwing on a shirt festooned with flamingos, hopping in the convertible and driving back roads to the Florida coast to do research, preferably at a site that serves mojitos.


Reading, hiking, ziplining, travel, attending SF conventions.
