About the Author

I write crime noir and historical mysteries set mainly in Central and Southern Europe - often in the wine-growing region I live in.
Moral ambiguity is said to be the essence of noir. Expect a serious puzzle to unravel, as well as a body count! And the past of the places is just as important as the past of the characters.
