Death of a Christmas Tree Salesman

First in a new series!

Sam Shovel only comes to life for twelve days a year at Christmastime, and this year, he’s in time to solve a murder mystery at the North Pole. O. Tannenbaum—the world’s largest supplier of Christmas trees—has been murdered, and although Nick and Nora Claus are too busy to solve the mystery, Sam has enough time on his branchy hands to take a stab at it. 

The North Pole is full of suspects, from the owners of the neighboring candy cane farm to Santa himself! But which Santa? Is it Nick Claus, Père Noël, Sinterklaas, Ded Moroz, der Weihnachtsmann, Sheng dan Lao ren, Baba Noël, or someone else entirely?

Woven with enough Christmas references to choke a reindeer, find out if Sam succeeds in catching the killer in Death of a Christmas Tree Salesman.

A fantastical Christmas cozy mystery perfect for enjoying with a cup of hot cocoa and a cookie any time of year!

A Deed of Dreadful Note

Fifteen years before Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published A Study in Scarlet, Anna Katharine Green began writing The Leavenworth Case, inspiring the creation of detectives like Sherlock, Poirot, and Wimsey, as well as almost every device and convention we now recognize as standard in detective mystery fiction. 

When her father’s client is found murdered, Anna takes up the call to prove innocent the young girl accused of the murder. The investigation inspires many of the events, characters, and descriptions that would later be published in her debut novel.

A love letter to mystery and writing itself, A Deed of Dreadful Note is an homage and reintroduction to an author who was the Agatha Christie of her time but a forgotten female today. 

This book is a fictionalized account of how Anna Katharine Green’s first novel may have come to be…

A Deed of Dreadful Note is the first and only historical mystery in a series featuring Anna Katharine Green in the role of detective!

Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker

This first book in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries is a Murdoch Mysteries meets Agatha Christie historical mystery with a cast of rich, quirky characters from inventors to thieves that must work together to solve a murder. Misdirection and slight-of-hand will keep the reader guessing whodunnit until the very end.

Archie Prescot has traveled across the country to design the now-iconic Spokane clock tower for the new Great Northern Railroad Depot. When his talent for creating unique clock chimes connects him with a local patroness, he is thrilled, until she is discovered dead in the workshop of his new colleague. Her grand home on the South Hill provides ample suspects, as Archie works with his landlords, Detective Carew and his twin brother, to prove his fellow inventor, a blind Japanese man, and himself innocent of the crime. While on the hunt for the murderer, romance crops up when a young lady crosses his path with a mysterious past of her own. Six intersecting storylines create a cohesive look at a convoluted murder that will require all points of view to discover the truth…

Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker is the first in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries set in Gilded Age Spokane.

Cupboards All Bared

In this sequel to Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Taker, we’re once again transported to Spokane, 1901. A body discovered in Hangman Creek looks to be the result of an accidental fall, but what begins as a “simple” mystery for Thomas Carew and his twin brother Bernard quickly becomes a lot more complicated, including implications that tie in with the bombings at the Idaho mines, and perhaps even President McKinley’s planned visit.

It’s been one month since the events of the first book, and readers will enjoy engaging once again with the full cast of quirky characters, from Marian and Archie to Thomas and Bernard, with a couple new faces thrown in. Those familiar with Spokane will love the entangled web that takes them from Hangman Creek to the Campbell House and the Montvale, ensuring that this story couldn’t be set anywhere but our beloved Spokane.

Cupboards All Bared is Book 2 in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries.

Crazy Maids in a Row

The insane belong in the asylum. But what if the insane are the only ones who can help you?

The Baker is in the Medical Lake asylum, which means all should be well with the world. But when a string of murders draws Marian, Archie, and the Carew brothers to her doorstep, they begin to wonder if she’s at it again…

Crazy Maids in a Row is Book 3 in the Spokane Clock Tower Mysteries. Be sure to read Books 1 & 2 before diving into Book 3.
