Thank you for stopping by my new Web site to go along with my new career as an historical novelist. So far, my first two historical novels are out in the world. The Towers of Tuscany was released in December 2014 by Lake Union Publishing and A Woman of Note was released on September 8, 2015 by Lake Union Publishing. These two novels are part of my trilogy of books about women in the arts. I’m currently hard at work on the third novel (working title: Stage Struck) that I hope to have ready for publication in late 2017.
NEWS FLASH! Both my novels won awards at the Chanticleer Authors Conference (April, 2017 in Bellingham, WA). The Towers of Tuscany won First Place in its Category in the Chaucer Award and A Woman of Note won First Place in its Category in the Goethe Award.
And to top off a perfect evening, The Towers of Tuscany was the Grand Prize Winner of the Chaucer award. Many thanks to the organizers of an excellent conference and to Lake Union Publishing.
In addition to writing novels, I love to travel and to blog about my travels. My latest trip was to fabulous New Zealand. Check out my six New Zealand blogs:
- South Island Sensational
- Winding West Coast New Zealand
- Awesome Abel Tasman
- Windy Wellington
- Steamy New Zealand
- Chilling in Hobbiton, the Coromandel, and Auckland
Supplementary Materials on the Novels
If you’ve enjoyed my novels, you’ll find supplementary information on this Web site. I’m delighted to report that A Woman of Note was launched successfully in November 2015.
