Work in Progress

What Amelia Knows ~ Historical fiction novel based on the murder of my 3rd great grandfather in 1897. The 82,000-word manuscript has been professionally edited and revised. It is entered in several contests and I will soon be actively querying publishers.

Blurred Visions ~ Linked historical short story collection based on the lives of actual patients, staff, and families at the Fergus Falls State Hospital, Fergus Falls, MN between 1895-1920. This project was inspired during my Hinge residency in 2016 when I resided on the hospital campus for six weeks.

[Under Construction] ~ Historical fiction trilogy based on Itasca County, MN Homesteaders
