Author's Website

My new author's website and blog is live. You can find it here.

Among other things, on the books page it has a synopsis of my soon-to-be-published book The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte. This historical novel is based on the life of Betsy Bonaparte, the American beauty who married Napoleon's youngest brother Jerome.

For anyone who is interested, here is a synopsis of my upcoming novel:

The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte

As a clever girl in stodgy, mercantile Baltimore, Betsy Patterson dreams of a marriage that will transport her to cultured Europe. When she falls in love with and marries Jerome Bonaparte, she believes her dream has come true—until Jerome’s older brother Napoleon becomes an implacable enemy. Based on a true story, The Ambitious Madame Bonaparte is a historical novel that portrays this woman’s tumultuous life. Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte, known to history as Betsy Bonaparte, scandalized Washington with her daring French fashions; visited Niagara Falls when it was an unsettled wilderness; survived a shipwreck and run-ins with British and French warships; dined with presidents and danced with dukes; and lived through the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Yet through it all, Betsy never lost sight of her primary goal—to win recognition of her marriage.

Blog Change

I have a novel coming out in a few months, and sometime before it's published, I'll be creating an author website. In the meantime, I decided to take down the posts from this old blog. Too much personal reflection to leave accessible to casual fiction readers.

I'll put up the address to the new site when it's live.
