Happy Holidays!

As readers of History Imagined are aware, I take the month of December to reflect on the past months and recharge my batteries for the new year. Needless to say, the last nearly 24 months have been a roller coaster ride for the whole world. My wish for you and your family and friends is that this holiday season brings you peace when reflecting on the past and strength for the future.

I do have some news that I hope you will find as exciting as I do. First, I have signed with Black Rose Writing for my sixth historical novel, The Last Dollar Princess. Its projected release date is September 22, 2022. I am thrilled and am looking forward to a wonderful working relationship with the folks at BRW!

Here is a taste of what to expect:

BRW will be designing the final cover. This is simply a place holder until I have the real deal!

It must be said. Scandal follows her family like an ever faithful hound. No matter how hard they kick it away, it comes slinking around once more. Although her family is obsessed with social position, one thing is certain. Heiress India Elisabeth Petra De Vries Ledbetter is an outlier among her kin. She is determined to set her own course, family expectations and society’s demands be damned.

Reared away from the social whirl of Gilded Age New York, India would prefer a life of philanthropy in her native Appalachia, but Mother and Grandmama have far grander plans. They believe Mrs. Astor’s old 400 are ready to overlook the past and that an advantageous marriage will cement their place in society once more. In fact, they have already selected the prospective bridegroom, Charles, Fifteenth Earl Kilnsey.

With captivating insights into the human spirit and heart, The Last Dollar Princess leads us on a riveting quest for independence through the most elegant and glamorous settings of the early 20th century. Perfect for fans of Marie Benedict, Daisy Goodwin, and Julian Fellows, this sweeping work of historical fiction will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.

Second, there will be a new feature on the home page beginning this month! History Imagined is for readers and lovers of historical fiction and what better way to bring you what is new in our genre than New Release Wednesday? This feature will present work on an occasional basis rather than weekly or even monthly. Its purpose is to give readers a peek at what is new and exciting in the world of historical fiction.

Wishing you

Happy Holidays


a wonderful

New Year!
