RETURN, a time travel romance (cool pics, too ;)

My FOURTH published fiction release…

WOW! What a busy few weeks… ***First off, here’s the latest interview about RETURN, with class-act interviewer Suzanne Harris of Books on Air. I got invited BACK to talk about my sidestep over into a new genre of time travel and magic with RETURN. ***Don’t miss the interesting party pictures from the grand release of RETURN on Halloween night 2020, below, too. Link to interview, right here.

Backstory on writing RETURN: The night of Halloweeen 2019, as my husband and I were getting dressed in our ghoulish costumes, I told him I was ready to write a book different from any others I’d written. Very chill, he replied, “Why haven’t you ever written about Halloween? It’s your favorite.”

This book was born from my frenzied, ‘pantser’ writing day and night for a month. My artist sister came through with the incredible cover illustration.

RETURN released, purposely, on that epic, blue moon, clocks falling back, Saturday Halloweeen night 2020!!! I asked party guests to snap pics in front of the original canvas. All of this is a dream come true!

***RETURN is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble as print and eBook!

The hubs and I went as Slash and Axl!

RETURN- Travel with Mawd and Ian through 15th century Wales, Eyam- the English plague village, Colonial American, the Roaring Twenties, and San Fran’s Summer of Love~

RETURN, a Halloween time travel romance

From the series Islands of Legend and Love

Ian Kelly is living a grand life in Manhattan in 2020 with his wife Mawd and their children. On Halloween night, he is tossed into history and discovers Mawd is a Welsh time traveler born in the fourteenth century.

Teenage Mawd uses a spiritual summon as a last resort out of an arranged marriage. Ian appears as her solution, unrecognizable to her. If he wants to regain his future wife in modern America, Ian must lure Mawd to fall in love as teenagers while she is forced to follow the summon rules.

Ian and Mawd are separated and reunited through a series of Halloween-based time hops as they age- in an English plague village, Colonial America, the Roaring Twenties, and San Francisco’s hippy-born Summer of Love. Their experiences offer a fascinating glimpse at life in each era and will prove their love can stand the test of time or tear them apart.

Sparkling book review of “Sunshine and Lev”

 

My third published romance/suspense novel, set on the South Carolina coast, is getting stellar feedback these days. Here’s the summary: 

What if you met the love of your life days after you, maybe, got pregnant by someone else?

Lonely but renowned artist Ariadne Franklin ushers in a new year with the vow of a ‘new me.’ Venturing beyond the usual confines of her beachside cottage, she lands herself in a piano bar. The creepy night that follows changes her life forever.

Days later, in walks architect Lev Porter to repair her cottage ceiling.  Breezy seafarer Lev, with a successful construction company known as LPI, Inc. and a bustling lifestyle full of intriguing friends, falls in love with Ariadne at first sight.

The artist and the architect must navigate through their strong feelings and the repercussions of her tragic night amid threats of major LPI lawsuits on the South Carolina coast.

*Special thanks to my artist sister for illustrating the compelling cover! –CC

“Sunshine and Lev” released. Here’s the introduction.

INTRODUCTION ~ Artist

Her drawing frenzies began with crayons and doodle pads before she went to kindergarten. 

Mom and Dad weren’t married anymore. They fought it out on the front porch or in the courtroom. A ready-packed suitcase and pair of houses defined her family. Sometimes she heard, and she always felt, the undercurrents. Dissension, revenge, and later, each of them assimilating their own brand of freedom. To be responsible for her became the loss. Mom and Dad scurried through living, it seemed, punctuated by marked calendars, new people, and renewed hope, leaving her tossed on the waves of time. 

Her head surfaced occasionally. A chance to breathe, the wild distraction to save herself, hidden in a well that never ran dry: thoughts within the mind, emotions of the heart. A fate relegated to brush strokes, a child’s unnoticed drawing frenzies, a teenager’s painting outbreaks, a woman’s studio sabbaticals. Nobody used the word art, instead, a glance or comment. That’s pretty. You like to draw. Is it the ocean or the sky? 

 Ariadne Franklin, of canvases splashed in blues and greens, a mermaid darting between reality and escape, ever detected, if anyone had looked. Her bouts lasted until the waves rolled out to sea again and calm restored for a little while. The story of an artist. 

It is with immense pride that I announce: The cover was illustrated by my beautiful artist sister Betsy.

“Sunshine and Lev” is a romance/suspense novel, my third release, available in print or eBook at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
