After two months of not blogging, I'm happy to be back. I finished, "Black Pansy" and have begun the research for another historical romance. Thanks to all who read my blog and books!
Here's the description for "Black Pansy":
Mabel McCrutchon has a touch of black blood running through her veins but not enough to cause her trouble... until the Civil War breaks out. In this historical romance, Mabel McCrutchon is a beautiful and brilliant "clerk" at the Pittsburgh News Herald, but in actuality she's the ghost writer behind the region's most popular novel, which the editor of the newspaper takes credit for, until it's discovered that he is not the author. Mabel accepts an invitation from wealthy philanthropist, Charles Churchill, to venture into the Deep South, where she'll confront the ghosts of her past and the reality of slavery. Mabel's humble, respectable Scots-Irish family is pleased with Mabel's relationship with Charles, but the illustrious Connecticut Churchill's who pride themselves in English relations to the Duke of Marlborough and England's Royal family, are anything but.
Mabel McCrutchon has a front row seat on Civil War America's racial politics, changing social norms, family values and shrinking dinner tables. The new railroads reach into America's heartland, photography is all the rage and Mabel McCrutchon catches it all, boldly exposing the new America.
