About me, I am an American-British writer of historical crime fiction and a Creative Writing PhD student at Kingston University, London. I am a 2020 Blood Scotland Pitch Perfect finalist and co-editor of the 2020 Amazon bestseller Noir from the Bar. I am also the Crime Writers’ Association London Convenor and a Society of Author’s member.

I grew up in Indiana, in a working-class background, and was the first person in my family to go to college and complete multiple degrees. I studied Theology at University of Manchester.

I’ve authored over a dozen publications through various literary magazines, journals and presses, with works translated into Italian, French and German, and licensed through Jaico Books India, and adapted into audiobooks.

I currently live in London where my writing journey led me to a MA in Creative Writing and to progress to a PhD.
