I’m proud to be the chief editor (and even occasionally illustrator!) for Manor Minor, a little press that thinks it’s big, with a commitment to big-trade-publisher quality in editing and design. Check it out on!


This annotated edition of a cult classic is very special to me—dedicated to the memory of my mother, Barbara Muriel Murray Ottewell, who passed on her love for Delano Ames’s dryly witty murder mysteries (and so many other wonderful things) to us. …

Brandon Charles West’s gentle yet lively fantasy Scarlet and the Keepers of Light—the first in a four-volume series—could easily become a classic of its kind.

The ghosts of Zimbabwe’s dark history demand a reckoning in The Lupane Legacy, the first in a series of novels of international intrigue by State Department spokesman Darby G. Holladay—a story of tangled family ties, of betrayal, revenge, and redemption, and of two people finding a new beginning.
