New series coming in 2020

Coming up in 2020: A new series, called Love Along the Wires, about telegraphers in Victorian London. Did you know that telegraphy was one of the first occupations where women were basically on par with men, working right alongside them? In the nineteenth century and into the twentieth, countless women made a good living in this career. In this series, they’ll find plenty of challenges and success in the workplace–and romance, too!

Here’s the cover for Line By Line, the first book in the series.

Cover for LINE BY LINE

Alice McNeil plans to travel through life unencumbered by love. A seasoned telegrapher, she’s just acquired a coveted position at an important firm and is living her life’s dream. But when she meets Douglas Shaw, the company’s ambitious junior director, her resolutions face challenges she could never have imagined. They form a friendship, seeing in each other the same integrity and driving work ethic. Despite the increasing warmth of their feelings, both are determined to keep things strictly business. Anything else is not in their plans. However, Alice accidentally raises the ire of a vindictive coworker. When the man lays plans to destroy Alice’s livelihood and reputation, Douglas discovers his own career and so much more are also on the line…

I’m excited to be able to share this new series with you!



Reader Festival Coming Soon to the Washington, DC Area!

Every two years, the Historical Novel Society, a wonderful organization comprised of novelists and readers, holds their annual conference in the United States. At this year’s conference, they’ve added a new event, open to the public. It’s the Reader Festival, which will take place on Saturday afternoon, June 22, 2019, at the Gaylord Resort and Conference Center in National Harbor, just outside Washington, DC.

Spend a Saturday afternoon with fellow historical novel enthusiasts!

The Reader Festival will include a choice of workshops, author panels with Q&A, and even an opportunity to learn Scottish country dancing! Capping off the Reader Festival is a multi-author book signing. It’s a great opportunity to discover new authors. I’ll be participating in the book signing, so be sure to come by my table to say hello!

Tickets to the festival are available for just $5.00 if ordered in advance. (Cost is $10.00 at the door.)  Click HERE for more details about the event and information on how to order tickets.

I hope you’ll join me and many other avid historical novel readers for this exciting and engaging event!



Release Day Updates!

I’m so happy that The Artful Match is now out in the world, and is available at bookstores and eReaders near you!

Available Now!

All this week, I’m sharing photos on Facebook of pictures that I used as inspiration for The Artful Match. I hope you’ll stop by and enjoy learning more about the background of this book.

If you are in the area of Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, I’m holding a painting party to celebrate the release of THE ARTFUL MATCH! Because the heroine of the book, Cara Bernay, is an artist, I thought it would be fun to dive into the painting experience for a few hours. We’ll be making a painting of Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, a beloved symbol of North Carolina. There is a tie-in of sorts to THE ARTFUL MATCH. The story includes a hurricane — something we North Carolinians are very familiar with! — and a shipwreck, which lighthouses are of course designed to prevent. Everything you need to make the painting is provided, including instruction, and every participant will receive an autographed copy of THE ARTFUL MATCH. There will also be snacks and beverages provided, and the facility offers wine and beer for sale. Doors open at 2:30 for socializing, and the painting starts at 3 pm. Cost is $35 per person. To reserve your spot, be sure to sign up HERE.

MORE FUN NEWS! My website is currently under construction (in the background). I’ll have a new website up soon, with a fresh look and fun links for you to enjoy.

My thanks to all the readers who have enjoyed these books! Happy reading!


The Artful Match releases April 2!

The Artful Match is available for preorder at your favorite retailer, including Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iBooks, Lifeway, and ChristianBook.com. Look for news soon regarding upcoming book launch events, in person and online. I’m excited to be sharing this story with you!

Cara Bernay has never found a place to fit in or to thrive. At loose ends in London after a near-tragedy costs her a job, Cara befriends a rising young artist. With his help, she begins planning a new life and developing her own artistic talent. But soon Cara finds herself at odds with the artist’s brother–a handsome but serious-minded earl who wants to force his brother back to a “respectable” life.

Henry Burke, the Earl of Morestowe, feels the weight of growing financial burdens. His profligate and emotionally unstable brother is making matters worse, and Henry needs him back home. Despite misgivings about Cara’s mysterious background, Henry sees she’s a positive influence on his brother and on Henry’s unruly young ward, and he strikes a deal with her to return with them to their estate.

But the family has their own secrets, and when Cara, drawn ever closer to Henry, stumbles onto the truth, she must choose between following her heart and pursuing a bold plan that could bring disaster.
