I’m a self-published author and avid reader of murder mysteries. I am particularly fond of those featuring impossible crimes. Footprints in the snow, locked rooms, and missing murder weapons are some of my favorite things. On this site, you can find links to purchase my three novels, Goodnight Irene, The Opening Night Murders, and The Strange Case of the Barrington Hills Vampire . My books are not fast-paced thrillers. They are inspired by the Golden Age of Detective Fiction. I strive to give my readers a well-plotted mystery while providing them the same clues the detective receives. Sometimes I cheat.
