The Wicked City Novels
The Jazz Age Novels
A Certain Age
As the hedonism of the Jazz Age transforms New York City, the iridescent Mrs. Theresa Marshall of Fifth Avenue and Southampton, Long Island, has done the unthinkable: she’s fallen in love with her young paramour, Captain Octavian Rofrano, an aviator and a hero of the Great War.
The Schuyler Sister Novels
Along the Infinite Sea
Each of the three Schuyler sisters has her own world-class problems, but in the autumn of 1966, Pepper Schuyler’s problems are in a class of their own. When Pepper fixes up a beautiful and rare vintage Mercedes and sells it at auction, she thinks she’s finally found a way to take care of herself and the baby she carries, the result of an affair with a legendary – and married – politician.
The Secret Life of Violet Grant
Manhattan, 1964. Vivian Schuyler, newly graduated from Bryn Mawr College, has recently defied the privilege of her storied old Fifth Avenue family to do the unthinkable for a budding Kennedy-era socialite: break into the Mad Men world of razor-stylish Metropolitan magazine.
A Hundred Summers
Memorial Day, 1938: New York socialite Lily Dane has just returned with her family to the idyllic oceanfront community of Seaview, Rhode Island, expecting another placid summer season among the familiar traditions and friendships that sustained her after heartbreak. That is, until the Greenwalds decide to take up residence in Seaview.
Amiens, France, 1916: Captain Julian Ashford, a British officer in the trenches of the Western Front, is waylaid in the town square by Kate, a beautiful young American. Julian’s never seen her before, but she has information about the reconnaissance mission he’s about to embark on. Who is she, and why did she track him down in Amiens?

The Forgotten Room

Short Stories and Anthologies
An American Airman in Paris
Octavian Rofrano has never met the girl whose photograph was his constant companion through the long days and nights of the Great War. The promises he made to himself and that far-away image in the silence of his cockpit have never left him, but the anguish and loneliness of post-Armistice Paris has crept into his bones.
Fall of Poppies
November 11, 1918. After four long, dark years of fighting, the Great War ends at last, and the world is forever changed. For soldiers, loved ones, and survivors the years ahead stretch with new promise, even as their hearts are marked by all those who have been lost.
The Schuyler Family Tree
Other than the Wicked City series, each of my books is written as a stand-alone novel. Still, the stories connect to each other through characters—most of them members of my fictional Schuyler family—who pop into each other’s books, sometimes in cameo roles and sometimes as major actors. If you’re having trouble keeping them straight in your head, this handy family tree will help to keep the relationships organized. It’s updated from time to time, so you’ll find out how new branches connect to the old ones.
To keep things simple, I’ve kept the generations organized in rows, but I haven’t cluttered it up with all the kids. I also try to keep spoilers (like who married whom) at a minimum. You’re welcome to download and print the tree so you can add your own embellishments as you go along.
