SHADOW cover (for Net)FinalShadowQueen

The Shadow Queen, a "sister" novel to Mistress of the Sunwas published on April 8, 2014, in both the US and Canada, where it made the Globe & Mail Canadian Bestseller list.

It is now out in paperback in both the U.S. and Canada. (The Canadian paperback edition is on the right.) I've also published an e-book edition, making it available to readers outside the U.S. and Canada.

What I'm writing now

I am now writing a Young Adult novel about Josephine Bonaparte's daughter Hortense for Penguin (U.S. and Canada), the first of two.

Events coming up

I will be speaking at the Bonnechere Authors' Festival 2015 in Eganville, Ontario, on July 29, and at StarFest in St. Albert, Alberta, on October 16. I'm very much looking forward to both these events.

In 2016, I will be part of two panel discussions at the San Miguel Writers' Conference, one at 9:00 am on February 11, and the other on February 14 at 11:00. This is a wonderful conference in magical San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. This conference sells out, so if you're tempted: go for it! I guarantee that you will not regret it.
