I was born in Canada and during childhood lived in a number of different places — Japan, Michigan, Virginia, and California. My love of books has remained the one constant in my life.

All the Frequent Troubles of Our Days is my third book, a fusion of biography, WWII espionage thriller, and scholarly detective story. I interweave letters, diary entries, notes smuggled out of a Berlin prison, survivors’ testimony, and a trove of declassified intelligence documents into an epic story about an American woman who was a leader in Berlin’s underground resistance to Hitler.
