I write historical fiction that views the past from new perspectives and nontraditional points of view. My current projects include a novel about a poet prosecuted for treason at the turn of the 17th century in London. My fiction is speculative yet plausible and supported by the historical record. Who knows, the “alternative” history of today could be the “mainstream” history of tomorrow.
