The Burying Ground – meet the author

theburyinggroundSomeone is digging up the graves at the Strangers’ Burying Ground in Toronto – the final resting place of criminals, vagrants, indigents, and alcoholics.

The authorities are unconcerned; after all, for years the growing village of Yorkville has been clamouring to have the bodies moved and the Burying Ground closed.

The graveyard’s secrets lead Thaddeus Lewis and his son Luke into the hidden heart of 1851 Toronto where they discover a trail of corruption and blackmail tied to an old sexual scandal and a dangerous enemy intent on vengeance.

Book four, The Burying Ground, was released by Dundurn Press Saturday, July 11.  Her books are available in most book stores and also available for the Kindle & Kobo e-readers.
