Hello Old Spirituals readers,

I’m very excited to share that my second book, Cold Heart, will be published on December 3 of this year! It’s an incredible true story about a murder that took place in Buffalo, NY in 1903.

The Poisoned Glass is non-fiction.

At the dawn of the 20th century, the social unrest in Paterson, New Jersey was palpable. Thousands of Dutch and Italian immigrants flocked to the city, hoping for a job in Paterson’s famous silk mills. The burgeoning population ushered women into the workplace, grew suffragist sympathies, and produced an anarchist movement.

In this charged environment, Jennie Bosschieter, a 17-year-old Dutch immigrant and mill worker, was murdered. Sorrow turned to shock when four wealthy, influential citizens were accused of killing her. The resulting criminal trial held the city – and eventually the nation – transfixed.
