The 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's Death

Today is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Which is your favorite of her books? I love Sense and Sensibility the best, but a close second is Pride and Prejudice. What's not to like about this brilliant depiction of a Regency era family consisting of five daughters about whose futures every parent might worry.

My story, "The Forgotten Sister", concentrates on the fate of Mary, the blurry middle daughter, who is so bookish and impractical, that even Jane Austen has a hard time trying to say something positive about her.

Take another look at this much maligned middle sister and see where her life took her after Pride and Prejudice's last words were penned.

"The Forgotten Sister: A Sequel to Pride and Prejudice" is available for only $1.99
at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, Smashwords and Kobo.

The Summer of Love: A Trip Back to 1968

Have you ever wished you'd gone to Woodstock? This time travel tale is about two sisters who go back in time to attend a similar outdoor concert, "The Newport Pop Festival", where they saw bands like The Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, The Grateful Dead, & Steppenwolf.

Here is an excerpt from a five-star review of the novel at Amazon.com:

What a groovy read! As a child of the 1960’s I was too young to be part of the teenage hippie movement but I dream of having been there and yes a time machine would be awesome! This story is so amazing I didn’t want to put it down afterall who wouldn’t want to go back in time and see loved ones that have passed on. Excellently written this story is an outstanding tale of the 1960’s with such descriptive detail I felt as though I was really there and living it all through the sisters’ eyes. From the festival, the stores, the cars, the house it’s all there. So amazing step into the photo booth take a flashback and relive 1968 once again.

Here's where you may purchase it for $1.99
