 Evelyn Marsh



A Kindle Scout Winner, EVELYN MARSH is available for $1.99 from Kindle Press at:

Everyone agreed Evelyn wouldn’t hurt a fly…but they didn’t count on a mother’s ferocity, nor the fury of a woman scorned. Written in the spirit of Patricia Highsmith (Strangers on a Train; The Talented Mr. Ripley), Evelyn Marsh begins with the provocative statement that “Evelyn’s first murder was an accident.” The rest of the book exists to explain the implication embedded in that first line. It’s a why-done-it and how-done-it, instead of a who-done-it.

Time Management, a novel

Sometimes the only way forward is to reclaim the past. In Time Management, Jeffrey Porter comes back from a business trip to find someone missing and circumstances conspiring to pull him back to his childhood home, back to the house with two cellars.

With Artistic License

With Artistic License KINDLEIf fortune is a moving target, so is love in this Romantic Comedy, where art and commerce intersect.

Curtis Cooke thought he had it all: a beautiful wife, a home in suburbia, a prestigious job as an Asset Manager in the city. But all of that is about to change, as clueless Curtis finds himself confronting the twin disasters of a dissolving marriage and a global financial meltdown.

When he is ejected from his house by an irate wife who feels “he wasn’t there, even when he was there,” Curtis finds he has his hands full with their six-year-old son Sammy, whose penchant for drawing leads Curtis to the world of art.

After a prospective client and an art critic mistake Sammy’s doodles for serious art, opportunities are presented and problems must be overcome, as Curtis learns a lesson in true value in his search for love and happiness.

I spent more than thirty years ranging the globe writing about wine, food and travel, with over 500 articles to his credit. Along the way he wrote a couple of unpublished “practice” novels.

Then one night I dreamt of a little boy painting on a wall, and woke up laughing. I got up, made a note and went back to sleep. I dreamt of an art critic who mistook a child’s doodles for serious art — and woke up laughing. So went the entire night, and in the morning I had the bones of a novel. Three years later, With Artistic License is that novel.
