                                                  ATTENTION BOOK CLUBS
It’s wonderful to meet with people who have read my books and want to learn more.  Book club members enjoy finding out about what inspired the story and characters, along with gaining insight beyond what they get from reader discussions alone.  
Contact me via the website for more information and to schedule a visit. I will travel within a reasonable distance, host Skype events, or accept telephone chats with book clubs.

Contact me if your organization is interested in hosting a lecture,  presentation, reading, and/or signing event.
I can be reached via this website, email, or contacted by telephone as indicated.

Etched in Granite Historical Fiction Series

Moving forward in time with Samuel, Sarah, Bess, Caesar, and the others... 
Stay tuned to this space for more details as the story is crafted, soon to be on the page.



December 12th and 13th ~ 10:00 - 3:00

Where? In my studio, Marigold Moon Wildcraft Apothecary.

In addition to signed copies of my books, I will have artisan wildcrafted products - "Merries," as Abigail and the others would say. This includes the medicinal plants we read about in the EIG Series, aligned with Nellie and my Native traditions.


620 North Sandwich Road, North Sandwich NH

Saturday and Sunday

All Books Available at Events

Due to the present circumstances, and for the greater good, many events have been canceled.

I am using my time wisely, writing blogs and continuing to craft the next novel in the series: "The Crows' Path."

If you haven't caught up with all three novels in the series, now is a good time to do so. All Books Available in various platforms, online in print and e-book format. Ordering information is here, on this website.

At this time, I am busy writing the first draft of The Crows' Path: Book Four in the EIG Series.  The characters continue to lead the way in this incredible journey. We are finally moving forward in time. So many surprises await.

Are you interested in the wild plant medicine presented in "Etched in Granite?" 
Although Nanatasis (Nellie) does not speak aloud, her profound wisdom shines through. Many of the plant medicines and remedies expressed in her narrative are available at my studio, Marigold Moon Wildcraft Apothecary and North Sandwich Tea.
I walk amongst my ancestors, hearing their whispers, learning the healing path.
For more information, contact me.

In addition to being featured at historical societies, bookstores, literary clubs, and libraries, please be reminded that I am scheduling educational programs. The material covered in the EIG Historical Fiction Series is appropriate for most junior and senior high school students. I have two specific programs designed; one is literary and the other is historical. I have participated as a presenter at college conferences and facilitate historical fiction workshops.

Operating From The Wound  
I was a guest speaker on:  "Native Opinion" Podcast Show on April 6th.
The interview focused on the vital aspects of acknowledging our history which has been grossly edited and systematically omitted from standard records, books, and our memories and recollections; the significance of reclaiming our voices through cultural narrative; and collective and intergenerational trauma integration. 
I discussed the process of discovery, resistance, stigma, and fear surrounding my books in the "Etched in Granite Historical Fiction Series" and how the healing has finally begun.
