My latest novel, The Shadow Queen, was published April 8, 2014, by Doubleday in the U.S. and HarperCollins in Canada. Click to download the HarperCollins Shadow Queen Press Release, or read it online here. Click here to see the book trailer.

My next publication, The Game of Hope, will be published by Penguin Canada on May 2, and Penguin US on June 26, 2018. It’s a Young Adult novel about Josephine Bonaparte’s daughter (and Napoleon’s stepdaughter) Hortense de Beauharnais.

The paperback edition of Mistress of the Sun is available in Canada and the U.S. Translated editions have been published in a number of countries, including Germany and Russia.

The Josephine B. Trilogy, a perennial favorite, has been published in over 15 countries. Touchstone (Simon & Schuster) NY has created handsome new e-book covers to honor the bicentennial anniversary of Josephine’s death.

I sometimes give readings in a 17th-century styled gown. This one was inspired by one worn by the heroine of Mistress of the Sun.
