I have a new novel to announce: Séance in Sepia is scheduled to be published in hard cover by Five Star Mysteries in October 2011.
The story begins in the present day when a woman buys an antique "spirit photograph" at an estate sale. She doesn't know anything about spirit photography--all the rage in Victorian America--but when she puts the picture up for auction on Ebay and the bidding soars over a thousand dollars, she realizes she must find out more.
She soon learns that the three people pictured in the photo were the focus of a notorious murder case that rocked Chicago in 1875. I will share more in the coming months but know that the working subtitle has always been: Victoria Woodhull and the Free Love Murders.
