Rory is very excited that a new book, Senor Lugosi and Other Stories, is now available!  


For a sneak peek, you can find him reading one of the stories from the new book here. 

The walking tour schedule is filling up nicely; click on tours for more info.  If you cant make it to Salem for a live tour, you might be interested in the a low-tech, no-frills video waling tour of Salem he posted during lockdown last year; you can find those videos here. 

For a while, he was keeping a blog, called The Essex Street Irregulars, a nod to both Essex Street, the main tourist street in town, and also to Sherlock Holmes's network of young "street Arabs" who kept him informed, and came to be called the Baker Street Irregulars.  Blog is updated ... irregularly, and you can find it here.

He was recently interviewed on the "To Salem" podcast, which you can find here.

Here is Rory being interviewed about Gallows Hill by Peter Alachi for "This Salem Life."


Here's another Gallows Hill interview on Quincy Access Television. 


He was also interviewed on the Omnimystery website.


His second novel, entitled Summerland, a historical thriller set in Gilded Age Newport, is still available from Merry Blacksmith Press!  Click on "Buy" to get your copy, and have a look at the great book trailer.   

Summerland got a lovely review from Motif, RI's leading arts paper.  Read the review here!


Check back soon for more news about upcoming signings and suchlike.   

Like Rory's work?  Want to lend some support?  Buying a book or taking a tour is a great way to do just that!  

But ... there are also other ways to show a little love, like 
Venmo, or you can buy him a cup of coffee with Ko-Fi (full disclosure: he'll probably buy tea with it).
