Unnamed as yet, my new novel is a complicated romance with many twists to the characters. Lisa, the protagonist is married to a violent alcoholic, falls in love with her husband’s boss, who also happens to be her best friend’s husband.
The two have been pushed together by their respective spouses for one reason or another over a period of seven years. Love blooms suddenly on a rainy early autumn evening during a bacteria-laden water crisis in their town.
Does it pique your interest? I hope so. Only 8,000 words into the story, but my mind is racing ahead. In the meantime, check out my other two novels, ”Hang the Witch” and “The Island House.” Both are described elsewhere on this site and are available on Amazon and Kindle.
The Puritans came to our shores and settled in Massachusetts. They came to escape the restrictions of a religion they found intolerable in England. Interestingly, they were as restrictive about their brand of religion as those from whom they had escaped. A small group did not like what was occurring in Massachusetts and gathered their families, belongings and cattle and moved a little further south to what eventually became Connecticut. They believed strongly in education for both boys and girls and particularly for their religious leaders.
The Connecticut Colonial Governor was John Winthrop, Jr., son of the Colonial Governor of Massachusetts. He was instrumental in changing the requirements necessary to charge a person with being a witch and did not believe in the persecution of witches. He played an important part in Elizabeth’s story in the novel “Hang the Witch,” available on Amazon and Kindle.
This web site is about my books. I hope you will find them entertaining. Each of the books shown is available on Amazon, Kindle and bn.com. Reading has always been part of my life and at any time, I might be reading two books — perhaps a love story and a mystery. Reading was such fun, I started to write. Please enjoy.
