A warm welcome and many thanks for your visit. On this site, I invite you to journey backward in time to the early-Victorian era, to discover the novels in the Martha Beale mystery series and to learn a bit about me and my wonderful hometown of Philadelphia - during the mid-nineteenth century, of course.

I wish you a most cordial stay, and invite your letters and comments. And, yes, the budding romance between Martha and Thomas Kelman continues...
