“The injection of a mystery, complex relationships buffeted by the winds of war and change, and a series of choices that cement the worlds of future generations are all wonderfully written, presented in a manner that will attract both historical fiction and general-interest readers alike.
The Other Mrs. Samson offers a gift of surprises, secrets, and political and social change that are often mirrored in modern times.”
– D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Recently I was asked “What genre are my books and what drew me to that genre?” I think readers who will enjoy my latest book will be those who enjoy twentieth century historical fiction, 1850’s through World War II. The Other Mrs. Samson is certainly not a romance novel but neither is it a war story. I would argue that it is a memorable love story. And the thing about love, as most of us know, is that it can be complicated. I think that makes this book curious, compelling, and emotional. For me, love is what made this story a joy to write!
The Other Mrs. Samson will be released on February 15, 2021 – Kindle, Softcover, and Audible. Please look for it at Amazon.
Spent a wonderful afternoon with the Woodard’s Mill’s Book Club in Chesapeake, VA yesterday discussing A Smile in One Eye: A Tear in the Other. Thank you Kay Stone for opening your home
It was an amazing group – lots of exchanges, opinions, experiences to share and questions. Can’t believe we have met with more than 30 groups this year. Have Book Club? Will Travel!!!
Interesting afternoon at North Carolina’s Camden County Library discussing A Smile in One Eye: A Tear in the Other! Thank you to both the Camden Book Lovers and the Wine, Women and Books book clubs for organizing – and to the library staff for opening up the program to the public.

This is the season for book clubs! Yesterday Ginger and I drove to Elizabeth City to meet with the River Readers Book Club. What a delightful time! Thank you for selecting One More Moon as your book this month – and a heartfelt thank you to Brenda Daniel for hosting in her beautiful home. Next week we meet with three more book clubs – two who have chosen to read A Smile in One Eye. Have book club? Will travel. What an interesting adventure! Great conversations!
A heartfelt thank you to Lucille McGrath and the Outer Banks Women’s Book Club for selecting One More Moon this month. I was glad I could join you. What a great discussion! Everyone participated. And, having it by candlelight (since the power was out on Sea Oats this morning) made it only all the more interesting!!!
