Ten years ago, I released my first independently published book, The Price of Innocence. Since that time, I’ve penned novels and novellas in various genres – historical fiction/family sagas, Gothic romance, and Victorian romance. I’ve also written one contemporary award-winning women’s fiction under a pen name.
With Russian blood on my father’s side and English on my mother’s, I blame my ancestors for the lethal combination in my genes that influence my stories. Drama and conflict might be found between the pages, but in the end, I give readers a happy ending.
My passion, besides writing, is researching my ancestry. I am obsessed with my ancestors who came from Manchester, England. You will find the names of my distant relatives sprinkled throughout my books as characters and in the dedications to keep their memory alive.
Below are my books for your enjoyment. To read excerpts and order from various retailers, click on the covers or CLICK HERE to view them all on one page. Thank you for visiting my website!
“When our hearts turn to our ancestors, something changes inside us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves.” Russell M. Nelson
Welcome to The Seaside Affair, my new novel. Set in a fictional location of Aycliffe on the shore of southern England in 1840.
Twenty years after their mother left the resort, Elizabeth and Francis, close siblings, visit on holiday. The seaside town is filled with family drama, unrevealed secrets, and plots and plans of self-preservation. Money, lies, lust, and deceit are only a few of the vices hidden under the sands of time.
Will either of them find love in this sordid place of retreat? Find out in February of 2020, but beforehand, follow my journey at The Seaside Affair Blog for information about the 1840s and upcoming story tidbits.
