It’s here! The Mysterious Tongue of Dr. Vermilion, the first book in the Elizabeth Crowne series, is available worldwide at Amazon and on Kindle. Better still, you can order a copy at your local bookstore.

“Elizabeth Crowne, Uncannologist, is a treasure: a quick-witted, brash heroine whose dry humor and no-nonsense attitude serves her well in a world where Prohibition really isn’t the biggest problem looming. A reader couldn’t ask for a better combination than the one found in Dr. Vermilion – an incredibly enjoyable heroine, her plucky sidekick (ladies kicking butt and taking names in 1921! Yes!), and a collection of stories that sparkle with lush description and carefully-crafted plots against the backdrop of one of the best cities in the world. Do yourself a favor: read it. You’ll want to travel with Elizabeth far past the last page – which comes all too soon.”

It’s 1921, and the Jazz Age is in full swing. But behind the boisterous veneer, malevolence lurks: An airship overrun by seductive killers. An asylum filled with living dead. A mysterious doctor with a secret language. Only one hero has the guts and gusto to face these horrors—Elizabeth Crowne, Uncannologist.

Witty and suspenseful, The Mysterious Tongue of Dr. Vermilion collects five Elizabeth Crowne stories, plunging the reader into kaleidoscopic mystery and Radium Age adventure. From the sultry nightclubs of Cuba to the cobblestone streets of Pittsburgh, Elizabeth probes the paranormal—and gives death a run for its money.
