Fall 2016   

DEAR FRIENDS,

We are seeing signs of fall here in Chicago. Leaves are changing and there’s a chill in the night air. It’s the perfect time to curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good book. If you’re looking for a good read, I have several options for you.

For something seasonal, try my self-published book THE WITCH FINDER. It’s a dark, historical romance set on the Scottish Borders at a time when people were convinced the Devil walked among us. She’s a suspected witch. He’s a witch finder. And in a week, it will be All Hallows Eve.

Second, if you haven’t read it yet, be sure to pick up a copy of WHISPERS AT COURT, which took first place in the Historical/Regency category of the Book Buyers Best Contest, sponsored by the Orange County (California) Chapter of RWA. I was absolutely delighted to hear the news.

Finally, news for next year! RUMORS AT COURT will be out in May, 2017! This is the third Royal Wedding Story. This time, the wedding(s) in question are those of two of King Edward III’s younger sons, John, Duke of Lancaster, and Edmund, later Duke of York. The brothers married sisters, heirs to the throne of Castile (Spain). And the hero of the new book is someone you may recognize: Gilbert from WHISPERS AT COURT. More details will come as we get closer.

And a final tidbit. I’ve joined Instagram if you want to follow me there. It’s a new challenge to tell stories with pictures instead of words. Join me if you want to see a bit more of my travels and my look at the world. Just click on the icon to the left to find me.
