The Moment Before


Now being written, this novel tells of a renowned Parisian artist, Yvette Roman, currently living in New York City, who is suddenly plagued by forgeries of her work. Is her lover the forger?

The third of a trilogy, to follow My Father In The Night and When Clara Was Twelve


The Last of Nico Sombra


Set principally in contemporary Buenos Aires, this completed novel tells of Nico Sombra, a gangster who has lifted himself from the poorest of beginnings to become one of the richest men in Argentina, and his love for the aristocratic Natalia Faustino. His rival, Facundo Dominguez, is an Argentine oligarch whose businesses are the stuff of South American entrepreneurial legend. He has aristocratic manners and a vivid presence, but we learn that Facundo is a dark, manipulative figure, once criminally influential to the military junta that ruled Argentina in the nineteen-seventies and eighties.

Argentina is a society that has always struggled with great class differences. Throughout The Last of Nico Sombra, the characters negotiate these differences, with often terrifying results. Natalia, in love with Nico and victimized by Facundo, is the figure that foments the ultimate disastrous rivalry between these men.
