Hello, and welcome to my new website! I write the Modern Midwife Mysteries. Book #1 is Murder at the Wedding, and Book #2 is Murder on the Widow's Walk. Book #3 will be released later this year. Maeve O'Reilly Kensington, my modern nurse midwife, provides excellent patient care and also solves crimes in Langford, her quintessential New England town. I hope that you enjoy her adventures.
Malice Domestic is an annual fan convention that celebrates traditional mysteries. Agatha Christie was indeed the grand dame of the genre. Malice Domestic will be held April 28-30 in Bethesda, Maryland. I will present my books at the New Author's Breakfast on Sunday, April 30th. Please say hello if you are there.
