Autism. Ghosts. LGBTQ issues. If you like fiction with a dose of intelligence, intrigue, and quirkiness, you’ve come to the right place. Writing from Madison, Wisconsin, a quirky place in and of itself (77 Square Miles Surrounded By Reality), I have a degree in English from Ripon College, where I was a member of the co-ed fraternity Theta Sigma Tau, and I’ve published three novels so far …
“Slips of Yew: A Dez Duchiene Mystery, Book 1.” The first in a series, Dez Duchiene is a hospitality professional in New York City, but when a conservative politician is murdered in his very liberal hometown of Madison, WI, he returns to investigate and risks losing the man he loves. (Release date: February 14, 2021)
“Ghost of Heffron College” ventures into the supernatural when college junior, Kyle Zander, encounters a ghost in his rural Wisconsin dorm room, a ghost who has little memory of who he was or how he died. Kyle has secrets of his own, and his quest to find the truth could get him killed.
“Asperger Sunset.” Russ Dante witnesses a murder in Madison, WI and has to investigate, if only for his own well-being. Along the way he discovers his quirks have a label – Asperger Syndrome (now Autistic Spectrum Disorder in the US) and he uses his special talents to stop the killer and stabilize his world.
“Olive Branches and Family Trees, A Dez Duchiene Mystery, Book 2” is due Spring 2022.
