It’s that time of year where most of us start thinking about what to get for holiday gifts for family and friends…. And as a small business owner and an artist, I hope you’ll consider looking at small businesses and local artists for your gift-giving. 

And since I’m asking, I’m making it easy for you to find a special gift for someone who…

Loves Abraham Lincoln.

Loves the Civil War.

Loves mysteries and crime fiction.

Loves historical fiction.

Loves to read.

Loves American history!

Loves strong female characters in historical settings.

Loves Washington, DC. 

Loves historical mysteries.

So, see, right here, I’ve got a plan for you. Take that person off your list and snag the first two books in my Lincoln’s White House Mystery series in one fell swoop…

I’ll sign and personalize First Edition Hardcovers of

Both for just $45 (shipped in US via Media Mail only).
