About the Book

Lady Cora Winfield’s life has always gone according to plan—her mother’s plan. So when she meets the dark Duke of Blackdale, Cora is fascinated. Knowing his dangerous reputation, Cora’s mother flatly forbids the match, and the duke decides to take matters into his own hands. Kidnapped and facing a scandal, Lady Cora must now decide whether love will be her downfall or the beginning of a new plan, one she never dreamed possible.

Set in the stormy summer of 1816, this Regency romance is a retelling of the myth of Hades and Persephone.

Releasing November 2017.

First novel contract signed!

I’m taking the plunge.

I just signed the publishing contract for my first novel!

I wrote the majority of my novel, working title Persephone: a Regency Retelling, for Nanowrimo 2015. And now it’s getting published! It will come out November 2017 through Cedar Fort.

It’s a Regency romance set in the summer of 1816, when the weather is cold and stormy. There’s a tortured duke (of course), a beautiful young lady, and a mother who says “No! Absolutely not!”

The duke kidnaps his chosen lady and races to Gretna Green. Her mother chases after, dead-set on her daughter marrying another.

It’s fun.

And I have more novels in the works. I’ve finished the rough draft of a YA scifi romance, and have plans for more.

Thanks to Priscilla for the photos!
