  The Goffle Road Murders of Passaic County: The 1850 Van Winkle Killings   

(The History Press, Oct. 2011)

The book is still in production, but it will be published by History Press and it will tell the story of the murder of Judge John and Jane Van Winkle in 1850 and its unusual connection with United States Vice President Garret Hobart and poet William Carlos Williams and the house in Hawthorne, New Jersey still stands today.

Images of America: Hawthorne (Arcadia Press, 2006)

This is my first book, Hawthorne, which shows what the early days of Hawthorne, New Jersey were like.

My friend Linda Zimmermann, wrote the foreward to it. Here is her spooky site.

To order Hawthorne, check out the site here.

Also, Google Books had it up here.
