"I’ve been writing mysteries for grownups (the Shadows Antique Print Mystery Series) and historical fiction set in Maine for young people (the latest of which is UNCERTAIN GLORY, about a boy who really did publish his town’s newspaper during the first two weeks of the Civil War) since I left corporate America in 1998 and moved to Maine, a state I’ve always loved and had family ties to. In early September of 2014 the seventh book in the Shadows series — SHADOWS ON A MAINE CHRISTMAS – will be published, and in January, 2015, Kensington will publish TWISTED THREADS, the first book in my new mystery series (the Mainely Needlepoint series)set in Maine.
I earned my B.A. at Chatham College and did graduate work at New York University. I’ve also owned an antique print business, MAH Antiques, since 1976. I adopted my 4 wonderful daughters when I was a single parent. They’re grown now, and I have eight perfect grandchildren. (Aren’t all grandchildren perfect?) In 2003 I married Bob Thomas, a man I’ve known and loved since 1968 .. sometimes life moves in slow but steady ways. Bob’s an artist, and is immensely supportive of my writing. (He even does all the errands and cooking so I have no excuses to leave my desk!) I’m very lucky to have achieved so many of my goals in life, and to have had fun doing it. My favorite quotation is “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for; it is a thing to be achieved.” William Jennings Bryan wrote that, but I think it defines my life.

And remember — LIFE is the REAL mystery!"
