I’m an award-winning author of books about American history and biographies, who now writes mystery novels with a historical angle. My Miranda Lewis “living history” mysteries are set in the present-day but at historic sites, enabling me to weave in a lot of history. Titles include Murder at Plimoth Plantation, Murder at Gettysburg, and Murder at Spouters Point, which takes place at a fictionalized Mystic Seaport.
I also write mystery short stories, and have published about a dozen, mostly in the annual anthologies of crime stories by New England authors, put out by Level Best Books, where I served as a co-editor/co-publisher for six years. In addition, I have a couple of other book-length projects in the works. I’m a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime/New England, where I serve as Speakers Bureau Coordinator, and a founding member of the New England Crime Bake Committee, which sponsors an annual mystery conference in November.
