Welcome to my website!

I’ve loved history all my life, and I hope to share that love with you. Too often we grow up thinking history is boring, dull, nothing but flat lists of dates and places. In my books I hope to show the life, the laughter, and the humanity that runs through our common past. Whether writing about World War I France or post-World War II London, ancient Rome or Renaissance Italy, I bring you history with an irreverent twist: stories to make you laugh, cry, then laugh some more.

Make yourself at home in my library here—I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
