R.J. Koreto has been fascinated by the Edwardian era ever since viewing the original "Upstairs, Downstairs" series.
In his day job, he works as a business and financial journalist. Over the years, he's been a magazine writer and editor, website manager, PR consultant, book author, and seaman in the U.S. Merchant Marine. Like Lady Frances Ffolkes, he's a graduate of Vassar College. DEATH ON THE SAPPHIRE is his first novel. His short story, "The Missing Motive," was published in the December 2015 issue of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine.
With his wife and daughters, he divides his time between Rockland County, N.Y., and Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
