How's this for a Christmas present? Talented artist and good friend Jennifer Stolzer created this image of my heroine Nelly Bly wannabe Jemima McBustle. Jemmy writes for a fictitious newspaper in 1898 St. Louis. Isn't she adorable?

Jennifer, Thank you--with a capital T.

You can see more of Jen's charming artwork at her website

It's official. Jack the Ripper in St. Louis is available in print and in Kindle at Amazon, Main Street Books in St. Charles and other fine bookstores. Check out Skimmer's book trailer. I think it's fabulous. Search the title on YouTube--or use this link.


I had to try my hand at a trailer, too. Here 'tis. Mine is more cutesy than fabulous, but I think you might find it adventuresome--and jolly, too. Go back to September 23, 1898 for a little Mayhem at
Buffalo Bill's Wild West.
