It came out yesterday, officially, although the snowstorm is slowing down deliveries. Matilda Empress took me twenty years to get published -- I don't even really remember how I chose this woman's story from among my many, many ideas. It was 1995! I'm writing another book now, and it was hard to select the heroine from my list -- but both times I was motivated to explore a real character about whom little is known. Much more room to maneuver! This second novel is about a woman whose name isn't even sure, nor her mother's name, although her father is notorious. (less)
Lise Arin I am looking forward to more Anthony Trollope, more Somerset Maugham and more Graham Greene!

“I would be no more than a shadow of myself if I thought that I had truly lost you.”
Lise Arin, Matilda Empress

“For the space of many, many years, you were enough for me. You were my bliss, and my hallelujah.”
Lise Arin, Matilda Empress

“I stand now at a crossroads. I see before me the route to virtue, at an intersection with the route to love. Do I step to the left or the right, to the wrong or the right? M foot wavers in the air; where shall I set it down?”
Lise Arin, Matilda Empress

“If there is one door in the castle you have been told not to go through, you must. Otherwise, you'll just be rearranging furniture in rooms you've already been in.”
