A long-time writer and reader, loves adventure and mystery. Growing up on Ellis Peters/Edith Pargeter, Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels (and Indiana Jones and Walter Farley), action-based history and mystery pursuits have always driven my imagination.
Last Assault on Oak Island is one treasure that has always fascinated me. The Rediscovered series is a collection of other lost treasures history has buried. I'm eager to put forth some of the theories and rumors backed by research and a heavy dose of "maybe..." in the next four books planned.
Room of Fire follows the first book, and from there, Dr. Sheldon and Lauren cross into the Middle East, Asia, and more.
What do you read for pleasure?
Ellis Peters/Edith Pargeter, Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels, and as a child, Walter Farley.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Last Assault on Oak Island and Room of Fire are both based on existing unsolved mysteries from history. They're always fascinated me. All the storylines in Rediscovered are still unsolved.
Swallowed in time and believed to be burned by Nazis, the Amber Chamber is a treasure lost in war and chaos. A chance purchase in France leads museum curator Carlos Sheldon and his assistant Lauren on a broken chase through Europe for the lost Amber Room. Pursued by deadly mercenaries with their own agendas, staying one step ahead of the hunt ends in a stumble as the lines between sides blur.
For 200 years Oak Island kept its secret of the Money Pit. When a museum curator and his assistant decipher a British admiral’s diary, the treasure hunt takes a new turn. Dr. Sheldon and his student assistant Lauren search for the real source of the alleged pirate treasure that has eluded treasure hunters for decades.
