The Muse of Fire launched on January 9. The ebook is published by Kindle Press and the paperback by New Arcadia Publishing. Find The Muse of Fire at your local bookstore or online.
Here is the description of the novel:
Abandoned at birth, the grandly christened Edward Plantagenet rises from London’s Foundling Hospital to take charge backstage at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, only to be blind-sided when he rescues Grace—a young woman escaping an abusive father. Through Ned, Grace finds an outlet for her passions in the theater. But a web of lies as tangled as any woven through a Shakespearean tragedy mars the pathway to stardom that Grace craves. Set against the backdrop of the Old Price Riots of 1809—the longest running theatrical riots in British history—Grace and Ned find common purpose in a quest that threatens to tear both their worlds apart.
The Muse of Fire completes my loosely-related trilogy about women in the arts.
