Overview

I write interactive story-driven treasure hunts to historic places for Time Traveler Tours & Tales. I've ghost-written and acted as developmental editor on numerous projects of historical fiction and historical scholarship. My unique value-add is bringing a novelist's flair to the presentation of history. What is history if not a collection of fascinating stories? Yet too many works sink under the weight of chronologies, facts and dates. I put the story back in history to create works, both factual and fictional, that hook readers and hold their attention right up until the end. I'm available to help you do that too.
