About Me

I grew up in Toledo, Ohio, attended Harvard University, and taught English, history, and drama in Honolulu, London, Abidjan, Bogota, and Westchester County, New York. My interest in the Elizabethan period began in college, bloomed in England, and has led me to write the Edward Hunter spy adventures. Now retired, I live in Breckenridge, Colorado with my wife Holley. Besides writing and reading, I ski, sing, play trombone, square dance, travel, and enjoy my family.

Massacre

My Latest novel, Massacre, was a 2015 Winner in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold Contest


1572. Edward Hunter undertakes a mission to discover the source of Catholic propaganda smuggled into England. In Paris, full of tension between religious civil wars, he finds an informant murdered, an ambassador threatened with assassination, and seductive femmes fatales. As if these challenges are not enough, his lover wakes him on Saint Bartholomew’s Day shouting that the Catholics of Paris are killing their Protestant neighbors. Since Catholics believe he is a Protestant and Protestants believe he is a Catholic, can he survive?
