I am an author who refused to give up her dream. I am now an internationally published novelist and three-time American Bookseller Association “Must Read” author. My originally self-published novel, THE RICHEST SEASON, sold at auction to Hyperion Books and became a Target Breakout Novel, a Book-of-The-Month Club pick in Germany and translated into Italian and Spanish.
I now have three additional novels published: CAPE COD LIGHT (previously published as So Happy Together) also translated into multiple languages, THE BOOK LOVER, and THE CEMETERY KEEPER’S WIFE, a historical novel based on true events that has become a book club sensation.
The Cemetery Keeper’s Wife tells the story of two brave and complicated women, one real and one fictional, and an unlikely bond that transcends more than a century as they search against all odds for love, redemption, and a place to belong.
My heroine Rachel’s obsession mirrors my own obsession to find out the truth about Tillie Smith’s life, and tragic death, which became a sensation during the Victorian era. In THE CEMETERY KEEPER’S WIFE, two women, scarred by shame, and separated by more than a century, reach across time and rewrite history.

I love meeting with book clubs, either in person or via Skype! See my Reading Group Guide forThe Cemetery Keeper’s Wife.
THE RICHEST SEASON has been rereleased as a trade paperback with a stunning cover shot of its setting, Pawleys Island! My second novel, CAPE COD LIGHT (previously titled SO HAPPY TOGETHER) has also been rereleased with an authentic photo of Provincetown’s Long Point Lighthouse on the cover. Both are American Bookseller Association picks as “Must Reads.”
