Author Introduction

A little intro. I write detective fiction, which I call North Noir, set in Northeastern USA and Canada. You know what they say? “Leave your Scandinavian Noir in the sauna. It’s time for North Noir.”

On the bio side, I grew up in Canada and the USA (mainly Nova Scotia and Boston). I’ve traveled the world using numerous aliases (for non-nefarious purposes, of course). You’ll have to take my word on that.

Keep coming back. I’ll be posting blogs about writing detective fiction as well as fiction in general. I’ll be posting book reviews. I’ll keep you up-to-date on the progress of my North Noir novels. They follow prescribed narrative conventions, such as the inclusion of forensic detail, yet the prose isn’t formulaic. It’s as important as the plot. Welcome!

The first two North Noir novels, Bay of Blood and The Color Red, are available in stores and online. Click here for sales details. The Color Red has received kudos from Publishers Weekly:

“Impressive series launch. Fans of intelligent procedurals will hope for a long series run.”
