Welcome

Welcome to my website! Please click on the pages tabs for specific information about me and my books.

I’m very excited to announce the release of my new historical roman, Safe Refuge. The book is Book 1 of a series I’m calling The Newport of the West Series. My hometown of Lake Geneva, WI carried that nickname for most of the beginning of the 20th Century because of the large number of beautiful mansions on the shores of Geneva Lake. In 1871, after the Great Chicago Fire destroyed many of the homes belonging to the wealthy bankers and industrialists of Chicago, the families of these movers and shakers of the 19th moved their families north to the lake and built large beautiful homes for them to live in while the city was being rebuilt. Other well-to-do families came later and built equally beautiful homes as a nice respite from the summer heat in the city.

Safe Refuge chronicles a fictional wealthy family as they come north to the lake and have to start anew.
