I finished writing my next book - The Carinthia Secret.


My next book, The Carinthia Secret is now in the hands of my editor, Jasmine Cummings, who will catch all of my errors and make the book readable. I hope to have this new thriller published in late June. The story takes place on the RMS Carinthia during her first world cruise in 1925-26. Will the charming but evil Tommy Thornton be caught before he kills again?

Readings while on the Queen Victoria


While on a crossing from Ft Lauderdale to Southampton, I conducted several readings from Table 29 and also from The Carinthia Secret. In another presentation, I shared what I learned about life on board The Carinthia in the 1920's. To learn more about the Carinthia world cruise and the ship, click on the photo.
