News & Announcements

My debut novel, The Secret Music at Tordesillas, is the inaugural winner of the Tuscarora Award for Historical Fiction from Hidden River Press. It should be out in early 2020.

The novel is set in 16th century Spain, and follows Juan de Granada, a young Jewish musician forced to convert to Christianity, and living under the scrutiny of the Inquisition in its early years. Juan tells the story of two brilliant and subversive women to whom his own life and sense of justice are forever bound.

Stay tuned…
