When precious artifacts go missing at the Museum of Medieval Art in Edinburgh, Sandra Robertson, a newly hired curator, is immediately under suspicion. 

When she's asked to help find out who's involved, Sandra ignores her attraction to Neil McDonnell, art crimes investigator assigned to the case, and gets to work. But, after a priceless 16th Century tapestry goes missing, what will they risk to recover the missing artifacts, stop the thefts, and find out who's behind a series of mysterious deaths?

AISN: B0889TDKR2 (2020)

On March 6, 2020, the Coronavirus became real to our family, and we began to self-quarantine, later called ‘stay-at-home’. A few poems emerged during this first month. On April 1, National Poetry Month began, and Robert Lee Brewer, of Writer’s Digest fame, began his PAD (poem a day) Challenge. 

This began my personal goal to write a poem each day. Here you’ll find poems that may make you laugh, think about places and times far from today – from Giza to the Old West, and poems that affirm the beauty of each day.
