Welcome! I am an art historian and historical novelist. I earned a Ph.D. in art history from Yale University and have taught college students in the United States and in Italy. My Authentic Arts guidebook series has been leading travelers off the beaten path for more than 20 years. As a historical novelist, my passion is bringing the stories of art history to life. I am the USA Today and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of THE NIGHT PORTRAIT, THE STOLEN LADY, THE GONDOLA MAKER, and other novels. Thank you for checking out my books and courses!
