In addition to my plays, audio dramas and films, for the last few years I’ve been trying my hand at prose fiction, including several short stories and two novels.
My first novel The Private Library is a modern mystery/thriller with old-fashioned characters and an anachronistic twist. A Seattle antiquarian book dealer becomes enmeshed with a criminal conspiracy when he receives a box of books supposedly owned at one time by Sherlock Holmes. But since Holmes never existed, why are the books so valuable? And what does this have to do with an enigmatic Steampunk group known as The Council of the Hours?
The book is represented by Linn Prentis Literary. If you’d like to read a sample chapter, you can download a Word file here.
My second novel is Percy & Reggie and the Agents of the Underearth, and I’m currently seeking representation for it. To hear the author give a reading of the first chapter of the book, click here, or to read the Prologue and First Chapter, go here.
I’ve also had stories published in Mystery Weekly, Curiosities Retrofiction, and other small press. You can listen to one of them, The Boyproof Watch, here for free.
