Beloved and Unseemly Release Day!


It’s release day for Beloved and Unseemly! The book has been available for pre-order for the last few weeks. For those who have already ordered it, thank you! The book should now be loaded onto your e-reader. I hope you enjoy Concordia’s latest adventure.

Haven’t ordered the book, but interested in learning more about book #5 of the Concordia Wells Mysteries? Here’s the teaser:


A stolen blueprint, a dead body, and wedding bells….
Change is in the air at Hartford Women’s College in the fall of 1898. Renowned inventor Peter Sanbourne—working on Project Blue Arrow for the Navy—heads the school’s new engineering program, and literature professor Concordia Wells prepares to leave to marry David Bradley.

The new routine soon goes awry when a bludgeoned body—clutching a torn scrap of the only blueprint for Blue Arrow—is discovered on the property Concordia and David were planning to call home.

To unravel the mystery that stands between them and their new life together, Concordia must navigate deadly pranks, dark secrets, and long-simmering grudges that threaten to tear apart her beloved school and leave behind an unseemly trail of bodies.

A Special Request: Please Consider Posting a Book Review!

Reviews bring visibility on bookseller sites such as Amazon. Indie authors such as myself rely upon these online booksellers to promote our work when a prospective reader visits the site. From what I’ve learned, 50 is the magic number of reviews it takes for Amazon to start making our books more visible when customers browse.

Can you help? If you have purchased and read any of my books via Amazon (or anywhere else), you can post a review! And we’re not talking about anything lengthy or profound. Just your honest rating (number of stars), and a sentence or two. But it will make all the difference.

Happy November, everyone, and thanks so much for your support!

Until next time,
