"Pickoff" Is Here!

Do you like historical suspense novels? Romantic suspense novels? Well, Pickoff is both, and it’s available starting today in both eBook and paperback editions!

Whether or not you’re a baseball fan, I believe you’ll enjoy this installment of my America’s Pastime Series, set in the Roaring Twenties, with lots of action, colorful characters, and a thoroughly likable hero in deep trouble.

Here’s a short preview video.

In Pickoff, it's 1927, the year Babe Ruth clouts an unprecedented 60 homeruns. Over in the National League, our hero, Joe Rath, has just lost his spot as starting catcher for the Baltimore Beacons. The team's front office believes their club, too, needs a bona fide slugger, one they've found in their new backstop, Frank Walsh. Determined to prove his worth to the Beacons, as well as to his dissatisfied young wife, Rath boards a team train bound for Chicago. Little does he know, a spontaneous visit to a speakeasy in The Windy City will land him in a world of ruthless gangsters and in the arms of a ravishing young singer.

You can get your copy of Pickoff at today. Paperback copies will also be available here on my website, beginning April 28.

Once you’ve read Pickoff, I’d love to know what you think of it. Feel free to email me at and share your thoughts.

By the way, Pickoff and the other two books in the series are standalone novels that can be read in any order. So, if you’ve not yet read Over the Right Field Wall or Dead Ball, you can jump right in with whichever era strikes your fancy—the 1890s, the 1910s, or the 1920s.

Until next time, then, happy reading and all the best to you!
