Introduction I write the Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites adult mystery series, published by Midnight Ink. OLD WORLD MURDER, THE HEIRLOOM MURDERS, and THE LIGHT KEEPER'S LEGACY will soon be followed by HERITAGE OF DARKNESS. I've also written over twenty novels for children and young adults, many of them for American Girl. I wrote the six books about Caroline Abbot, the newest historical character, and a Caroline mystery, TRAITOR IN THE SHIPYARD. Another interest is the American Civil War, and I've published one nonfiction book and five historical novels about that conflict. I'm passionate about history, and that often shows up in my work!
Interests Writing, reading, gardening, cooking with local organic produce, knitting, quilting, travel.
