I was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, which, I believe, explains my inherent cheekiness and my sophisticated sarcasm gene. In the late seventies, my family immigrated to America where I've made a career out of my passions: reading, writing, and teaching.
I'm Professor of English and Director of Creative Studies in Writing at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where, among other things, I conduct a seminar on the art of the mystery. I've been teaching at Alverno for over twenty years (I began teaching when I was, em, 14).
My crime fiction column runs every third Sunday in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. My reviews also run in The Minneapolis Star Tribune, and in other newspapers. Oh, and once a month I chat about books on WTMJ4's The Morning Blend (Milwaukee’s NBC affiliate).
You can also find me on Goodreads.
