Read full description of the books Misery's Curse:When her father's kingdom finally falls, Leah and her protector, Petri, find shelter with a gypsie tribe passing through the countryside. Leah knows that Lord General Yearick is cutting a bloody path through the Realm searching for her, and that her life depends on how skillfully she can blend into the life of the gypsie camp.
For a time, Leah finds the joy of acceptance and belonging in a new family. But as she approaches womanhood, her power is growing stronger, and she has no idea how to control her frightening visions.
When tragedy strikes, Leah finds a surprising ally and safety in the unlikeliest of all places: the palace on Omana Teret, as a Cadian novice.
Meanwhile, Chancellor Paglia has discovered Marta working as a courtesan. When he claims her for his own, she has no choice but to submit. Can she keep her sanity as he subjects her to his debased appetites — or can she beat him at his own game?
Cadia-dedre Osane helps Leah to focus her gifts, and together they uncover terrible secrets. Is Chancellor Paglia plotting against the shallana breda? Is he somehow responsible for the lack of a male heir? And what is his relationship with Fortulla, the notorious witch of the Old Ways?
Read information about the authorI was born in the little town of Thomasville, GA, where the pool hall is still the best place to get a chili dog. I was raised in Savannah, GA - one of the most beautiful cities in the country and I consider Savannah my hometown. (Contrary to all the books written about Savannah, the air is redolent of neither moonlight nor magnolias, but more often dead fish and the paper mill upriver; still, I love it.)
I received my BA in Art and English from Agnes Scott College for Women, just outside of Atlanta. It was there I began to be serious about the art of writing.
I actually began my first attempt at fiction in the fifth grade (or was it the fourth?) after my mother bribed me a nickel a chapter to read her favorite book, "Gone with the Wind." I was so unhappy with the way the book ended that I tried to write my own sequel. I don't know if I stopped because I had some vague notion of copyright laws or because my mother discovered the pages while cleaning my room.
I wasted a lot of time believing that I couldn't write, afraid to try because I thought you had to be someone really special, a magician actually, to create such a wondrous thing as a book. It wasn't until college that a friend talked me into taking a creative writing class. I never worked so hard in a class, or enjoyed a class more. I came out of the closet, so to speak, and knew I wanted nothing more in life than to write stories for other people to read.
My first published novel was "Small Change: The Secret Life of Penny Burford." "Misery's Child: Book I of the Cadian Chronicles" is the second, published as an ebook. Both are available from Amazon.com
My newest novel,"Something Blue," is about four generations of Southern women trying to survive a wedding. Think Bridget Jones meets Steel Magnolias! Amazon reviewers are loving it!
I also have a fantasy series, "The Cadian Chronicles," of which "Misery's Child" is the first title.
I currently live in Nashville, TN with my overweight and slightly psychotic tabby, Doolittle. I make a living as a graphic artist, painter and crafter.
If you have read my books, please accept my most profound gratitude!
