In 2012 I released some previous previously published paperbacks as Ebooks. I'm delighted to make these crtically-acclaimed books available to a new and broader readership! All are historical romances. They can be purchased for a variety of e-reading devices. The primary characters of The Islanders Series are connected to the Isle of Man, but their adventures in search of lasting love take them to London and elsewhere. My novella "The Apple Blossom Bower" was originally published in a by-invitation anthology. "The Love Spoon" novella is an ebook orginal. Both novellas have been bestsellers on Amazon.
2015 promises to be busy with the new book launch, a book re-launch, two writing projects, and the usual travels. At the end of 2014 I made my annual visit to England, spending time in Berkeley, Bristol, Bath, Windsor, and of course London. The weather was splendid, it was lovely seeing friends, Christmas shopping, researching future books, and visiting galleries and museums and tracking down portraits of the characters in my forthcoming historical novel.
