I am the author of NICHOLAS COOKE, THE PHYSICIAN OF LONDON, THE PLAYERS, MARRYING MOZART, and CLAUDE & CAMILLE: A NOVEL OF MONET. I love Shakespeare, early and classical music and many things! I am married and have two sons....and I have many books in progress!"


I am happy to announce that my first novel, NICHOLAS COOKE: ACTOR, SOLIDER, PHYSICIAN, PRIEST, the story of a brilliant but hot-tempered boy who grows up as an apprentice in Shakespeare’s theater troupe 1593 and to whom Shakespeare is a life-long mentor, is now a Kindle e-book!

First published eighteen years ago by W.W. Norton, it was called “immensely moving” by the CHICAGO TRIBUNE, “compelling... Read more of this blog post »

“Sometimes he dreamt he held her; that he would turn in bed and she would be there. But she was gone and he was old. Nearly seventy. Only cool paint met his fingers. “Ma très chère . . .” Darkness started to fall, dimming the paintings. He felt the crumpled letter in his pocket. “I loved you so,” he said. “I never would have had it turn out as it did. You were with all of us when we began, you gave us courage. These gardens at Giverny are for you but I’m old and you’re forever young and will never see them. . . .”
Stephanie Cowell, Claude & Camille: A Novel of Monet

“Dull late-afternoon light glittered on the hanging copper pots in the kitchen where the old painter sat with his wine, smoking cigarette, a letter angrily crumpled on the table in front of him.”
Stephanie Cowell, Claude & Camille: A Novel of Monet

Ugbomeh Thanks for the adds


Clarissa I didn't do much writing. Mostly I was a hanger on of Katherine Kirkpatrick and had worked at Henry Holt with her.

Stephanie I think I recall now. Did you come to New York and we met? I am beginning to bring up some particulars from my mind! If you'd tell me about your writing again, it will all come back.

Stephanie


Clarissa Stephanie, I don't know if you remember me, but I met you through Katherine K's writing group.
