Welcome to my online home! Here’s where I open the door and invite you inside to meet my literary family: my 15 nonfiction books, 200 magazine articles (some available here), and the 8 historical mysteries written by my fictional self, Mary Miley. Severn House is publishing my new mystery series set in Chicago during my favorite decade, the Roaring Twenties: The Mystic’s Accomplice hit US shelves last year in hardcover, ebook, and paperback; the second, Spirits and Smoke, was released in ebook and hardcover on January 4 with paperback scheduled for August 30. My editor says the third, titled Deadly Spirits, will release in September, hardcover and ebook. On a personal level, I’m busy at Valley Road Vineyards, working on the bottling assembly line. I’m eager to start traveling again in 2023!
