A New Interview with Nancy Wiegman of NSPR

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Nancy Wiegman of North State Public Radio for a discussion of my first novel, Where You Will Die. I wanted to share the enjoyable and incisive conversation.

You can read the blog post about it here.


Local author and literary impresario Alan Rose invited me to sit down on his monthly interview show, Book Chat, to talk about my debut novel, Where You Will Die. It was an honor and great fun, as Alan is an accomplished ad engaging interviewer. You can see the episode on YouTube here, or in the embed above. 

Hope You Enjoy!


Eden Ridge is the perfect place to restore a grieving soul. Alan Wright retires to the idyllic town nestled in mountain pines to build his spiritual center and heal after the shocking death of his wife left him inconsolable for two years. Just as he begins drawing a congregation and mending his heart, the murder of his best friend and favorite follower threatens to break his spirit again.

Ruth MacKenzie was to gift Alan with a rare and valuable antique that now is missing along with her bright, fierce presence. Convinced that her generosity - and his outsider status - got her killed, he decides he must risk everything to set things right. Helped by Ruth’s friends - known as The Little Red Hens - he faces ridicule, arrest, and his own demons to hunt for her killer.



Where You Will Die peers into the human heart, where even the admirable trait of loyalty can beget heroism or villainy. Alan Wright seeks to understand the human dilemma – whether to follow our light or dark natures – and how we all believe we act with the best intentions.

Please check out my blog for more information about the book, character backstories and how the town I lived in and loved for two decades became the basis for Eden Ridge.
